Gary Mater Of Ceremonies

 

J. Gary Trichter had the honor of serving as Master of Ceremonies at the 29th Annual Joint Service Academies Military Ball on December 26, 2014 at Moody Gardens Convention Center in Galveston, Texas. 

The event is held to honor the young men and women from the Southeast Texas area who are currently serving as cadets and midshipmen at the five U.S. Service Academies. 

In addition to approximately 110 Cadets and Midshipmen, the JSAMB is generally attended by over 500 guests, family members, and military dignitaries.

The Ball is hosted, on a rotating basis, by the Army, Navy, and Air Force Academy parents’ associations. 

This year’s Ball was hosted by the Southeast Texas Air Force Academy Parents’ Association (SETXAFAPA), a non-profit organization that exists solely to provide support to the cadets and midshipmen at the Academies.

The formal dining-out event included a seated dinner and dancing as well as a featured speaker, Lt. Col. Steve Russell, retired.  Col. Russell was instrumental in the capture of Saddam Hussein and is the author of the book WE GOT HIM! 

A Memoir of the Hunt and Capture of Saddam Hussein.  Col. Russell served in the Oklahoma Senate and was recently elected to represent Oklahoma’s 5th District in the U. S. Congress.

Debra Eno, this year’s Ball Co-Chair said, “The life of a cadet or midshipman at one of our nation’s service academies is much different than the life of most college students. 

Selection to attend an Academy is prestigious and comes with a full scholarship, but acceptance of the appointment is not without sacrifice.  

The Academy experience is a four-year immersion experience designed to produce a leader of character; the pressures on these young men and women are enormous. 

Being active duty, they must fulfill military obligations and stay in top physical shape while carrying a heavy academic load.

Gary-Trichter-DWI-Specialist

HOUSTON – July 30, 2013 – Trichter & LeGrand, PC, a leading Houston criminal defense firm, announced today that J. Gary Trichter, DWI Specialist by the National College for DUI Defense, founder and Cowboy Lawyer and prominent Houston DWI Attorney, has been honored with the Erwin-Taylor Award by the National College for DUI Defense (NCDD) at their annual summer session held at Harvard Law School in Cambridge, Massachusetts on Thursday, July 25th.

“It’s a real honor to be recognized by the National College for DUI Defense,” Trichter said. “I’m happy to have had a hand in improving the quality of DWI representation in both Houston and throughout Texas.”

The Erwin-Taylor Award is a national recognition for exceptional lawyers who have dedicated their lives to protecting constitutional rights of citizens and upgrading the level of professionalism for all attorneys. 

Originally called the Richard E. Erwin Lifetime Achievement Award, it was named after Richard E. Erwin, the author of the first text on defending DUIs.

Mr. Erwin also published the first handbook on how to defend a DUI case in 1963. 

A public defender for most of his career, he had to create tools and strategies for fighting DUI cases. 

In 2004, the name changed to the Erwin-Taylor award to also honor Larry Taylor, who authored several important DUI manuals to help train the DUI practitioner.

Gary was the first DWI Specialist in the State of Texas. 

He is the founding member of the NCDD and has served the longest tenure on the Board of Regents of the NCDD and was Dean of the College from 2002 – 2003. 

He has been practicing law in the state of Texas since 1980 and served as president of the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association (TCDLA) from June 2011 through June 2012. 

Gary is past chairman of the DWI committees for the (TCDLA) and for the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.
