McDowell Hetherington LLP Announces Name Change

McDowell Hetherington LLP congratulates founding partner Andrew M. Edison on his appointment as a magistrate judge for the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas. The appointment, which is effective immediately, recognizes Andrew’s twenty-four years as a smart, tough, and fair advocate for his clients. He will bring that same energy, intelligence, and dedication to the federal bench as a public servant.

Partner Tom Hetherington said, “I am thrilled for Andy. Having practiced law with him for almost 20 years, we have fought many battles together for our clients. While I will miss working with my friend, I know that he will serve the Southern District of Texas well as a magistrate judge.”

The firm is also excited to announce that it will now be known as McDowell Hetherington LLP. “We look forward to carrying on the firm’s tradition of zealously representing our clients’ interests in courtrooms from coast to coast,” said partner David McDowell.
