State Bar of Texas to honor San Antonio attorney for pro bono work
SAN ANTONIO — Local attorney Tammy L. Wincott will receive a resolution from the State Bar of Texas on Friday, Jan. 24 honoring her commitment to helping veterans and other Texans who can’t afford legal services.
The State Bar will present the resolution in conjunction with its board of directors meeting in San Antonio.
Wincott is a solo practitioner and the principal owner of the Wincott Law Firm, P.C., whose practice primarily focuses on bankruptcy, family law, and immigration. A member of the College of the State Bar of Texas and the Pro Bono College of Texas, she regularly contributes more than 100 hours of pro bono service each year.
The San Antonio Bar Association’s Community Justice Program has recognized Wincott as Pro Bono Attorney of the Year in 2010, 2012, and 2013 for handling the most cases by an individual attorney. She tied with fellow attorney James Rodriguez in 2011.
A former member of the U.S. Air Force, Wincott is particularly compassionate with the indigent veterans who attend the Community Justice Program’s monthly veterans legal clinic. She also is an active member of multiple State Bar sections, including Family Law, Animal Law, Bankruptcy, Immigration and Nationality, and Military and Veterans.
