Jackson Walker partner Jon Mark Hogg was featured in a February San Angelo Live article detailing his long-time involvement in local theatre.
The article discussed the San Angelo litigator’s involvement with the Angelo Civic Theatre (ACT) over the past several years. Most recently, Mr. Hogg played the role of Felix Ungar in ACT production of Neil Simon’s “The Odd Couple.” The popular play premiered in 1965, was revived countless times, and has been made into a motion picture as well as a TV series.
Mr. Hogg attributed the success of the live show to the tension it creates for the audience. “Neil Simon is great about building that tension, and then he throws in a great comedic line and gets the big laughs. It’s a whole lot funnier when you see it live than when you just watch it on the TV,” he said.
Mr. Hogg other roles have included David Rambo in ACT’s “God’s Man in Texas,” Amos Hart in ACT’s “Chicago,” and Mr. Pinkerton in Be Theatre”s “Pinkalicious, the Musical.”
Mr. Hogg is currently involved in “Shakespeare on the Concho,” a collaboration between Be Theatre and the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts. The production is a family event and free to the public running June 13-15, 2014.
Mr. Hogg defends companies and employers all over West Texas in a wide array of business– and employment–related litigation. Most notably, he has successfully defended national and international clients in multimillion-dollar commercial disputes in West Texas and handled the defense of a high–profile civil rights case which drew extensive national and international media coverage. Mr. Hogg advises and provides counsel on a wide variety of complicated workplace– and business–related matters and transactions, such as responding to Charges of Discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, representing clients in Department of Labor investigations, addressing application of the Fair Labor Standards Act, and defending claims for unpaid overtime, among others. In addition, he represents local governments all across West and West Central Texas, defending civil rights cases and other government–related litigation including defense of Open Meetings Act and Public Information cases, inverse condemnation and personal injury defense. Mr. Hogg received his B.A. from Baylor University and his J.D. from St. Mary’s University School of Law.
