John Adcock has been a member of the Beck Redden appellate section from its inception. His practice focuses on complex civil matters, where his educational background in liberal arts and his experience as a certified public accountant helps him break down complicated transactions into terms that can be readily explained to the appellate courts.
But explaining the facts is only half the battle. John also has a facility for crafting legal arguments that cleanly and effectively cut to the heart of the case, maximizing his client’s position. While much of John’s time is spent briefing complex cases on appeal, he also regularly handles dispositive motions and jury charges in the trial courts.
Before joining the firm, John served as a briefing attorney for Chief Justice Linda Thomas, Court of Appeals for the Fifth District of Texas at Dallas.
