After a maximum of nine years of service, Kim J. Askew has been succeeded by retired Judge Lora Livingston as the Texas state delegate in the American Bar Association’s House of Delegates. Askew, a partner in DLA Piper in Dallas, is a longtime member of the House, having previously served as the delegate for the ABA Section of Litigation and the Dallas Bar Association. She continues ABA service as the delegate for the American Law Institute.

“I have long supported the State Bar of Texas and worked on behalf of Texas lawyers,” Askew said in an email to the Texas Bar Journal. “Serving as the ABA Texas delegate was a continuation of my service to Texas lawyers. Plus, I enjoy being at the heart of debates on some of the major issues facing lawyers and courts.”
