Jackson Walker associate Jorge A. Padilla was recently elected to membership in the Fellows of the Texas Bar Foundation.

Fellows of the Foundation are selected for their outstanding professional achievements and their demonstrated commitment to the improvement of the justice system throughout the state of Texas. Election is a mark of distinction and recognition of Jorge’s contributions to the legal profession.

Selection as a Fellow of the Texas Bar Foundation is restricted to members of the State Bar of Texas. Each year, one-third of one percent of State Bar members are invited to become Fellows. Once nominees are selected, they must be elected by the Texas Bar Foundation Board of Trustees. Membership has grown from an initial 254 Charter Fellows in 1965 to more than 7,500 Fellows throughout Texas today.

The Texas Bar Foundation is the largest charitably-funded bar foundation in the country. Founded in 1965 by lawyers determined to assist the public and improve the profession of law, the Texas Bar Foundation has maintained its mission of using the financial contributions of its membership to build a strong justice system for all Texans. To date, the Texas Bar Foundation has distributed more than $15 million throughout Texas to assist nonprofit organizations with a wide range of justice-related programs and services.

Jorge represents clients both in and out of court to identify and solve their problems in the most efficient manner. His practice focuses on serving clients in a variety of litigation matters, including real estate disputes, personal injury defense, premises liability and products liability defense, business contract disputes, and collection matters. He also has extensive experience in post–judgment collection remedies. Mr. Padilla received his J.D. from The University of Texas School of Law and his B.J. in Journalism, with honors, from The University of Texas at Austin.
