Dianne Byrnes

Trial Lawyers Diane Byrnes and Eugene Clayborn head to West Texas to try a particularly contentious matter in a beautiful historic Texas courthouse. All the modern amenities of modern trial practice become even more essential when the trial lawyer is trying a case far from home. We wish them luck!

Rotarian Diane Byrnes actively participates in many Northwest Austin Rotary Club service projects. Here she helps her Rotary brothers learn about safety on the job site at Hill Country Ministries. It only took two lawyers, and two advertising executives three hours to joyfully install a new door. No one was injured.
