    About our speaker:

    A graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, Bill Aleshire received his license to practice law in 2001. Prior to his law practice, Mr. Aleshire worked in staff positions in the Texas House of Representatives (members of the so-called “Dirty Thirty”) and the Texas Senate in the early 1970s.

    Mr. Aleshire worked on Sissy Farenthold’s campaigns for Governor in 1972 and 1974. He served as Administrative Assistant to the house sponsor of the Texas Open Records Act, now the Texas Public Information Act. Mr. Aleshire also worked several years under State Comptroller Bob Bullock, last holding the position as Associate Deputy State Comptroller, reporting to the Chief Deputy Comptroller.

    Elected Travis County Tax Collector, Mr. Aleshire served in that position from 1980-1985. He won election for Travis County Judge and served in that position from 1987-1998. In September 2003, Jennifer Riggs and Mr. Aleshire left the firm of Hill, Gilstrap, Riggs, Adams & Graham, L.L.P. and opened Riggs & Aleshire, P.C. In January 2015, Mr. Aleshire opened his solo firm, AleshireLAW PC, where he enjoys a law practice focused on government accountability and public policy matters.

    Mr. Aleshire is the author of “HILLARY” EMAILS AND THE UNENFORCEABLE TEXAS PUBLIC INFORMATION ACT, 17 Tex. Tech. Admin. L.J. 175 (2016) and THE TEXAS ATTORNEY GENERAL: ATTORNEY OR GENERAL?, 20 Rev. Litig. 187 (2000).
