2019-2020 TYLA Elections
TYLA President-elect Candidate
Tim Newman is a partner in Haynes and Boone, where he defends clients against government investigations and co-founded the firm’s cybersecurity group. He was the Texas Young Lawyers Association’s Outstanding First Year Director in 2017 and its Outstanding Director in 2018 and currently serves as TYLA treasurer.
Newman is a first-generation lawyer from a small town in East Texas. He attended Texas A&M University and became the head drum major of the Aggie Band, later attending law school at the College of William & Mary. Newman clerked for U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen in Brownsville from 2009 to 2010 and is a Texas Bar Foundation Fellow.
Since joining the TYLA Board of Directors in 2016, he has led the launch of TYLA’s Young Gunners podcast, collected nearly 1,000 children’s books for Bookshelves in Courtrooms, organized events promoting attorney wellness, and contributed to numerous other TYLA initiatives. Before TYLA, Newman was an elected director of the Dallas Association of Young Lawyers and received DAYL’s Outstanding Committee Chair Award in 2016. He also takes on pro bono legal matters and has served on the Capital for Kids CONNECT Board and his church’s trustees committee.
Newman’s more interesting half, Leslie, is a professional orchestral musician. They spend their free time chasing their newly mobile 1-year-old son, Danny, and taking walks with their rescue dog, Mia.
