Character Matters

Character Matters® is our foundational maxim; our core values its roots. Brown Fox was founded on the belief that our pursuit of these values leads to a successful law firm, lawyer, leader, and person. We hire, make decisions, represent clients, interact in conflict, and strive to lead our lives devoted to these principles.


Integrity

The Texas Lawyer’s Creed calls for lawyers to adhere to “the highest levels of professionalism” in our practices. We agree.  We strive to act with high-integrity—honesty, ethics, and strong moral foundation—in every relationship and seize opportunities to celebrate high-integrity leadership in our team.

Servant Leadership

We believe that great leaders rise through service, and the legacy of a successful leader is marked by building up and protecting others.

Excellence

We hire the top talent available and reinforce a culture that expects every team member to bring his or her A-game every step of the way. Our goal is to bring excellence to the table in every encounter, whether negotiation, pleading, transaction, or trial. Our clients should expect nothing less.

Impact

We are not fans of the status quo, nor do we aim to blend in with the legal crowd. We maximize and leverage our talents to have a positive and lasting impact in every matter for our clients and in the community.

This is one of the most important pieces of cave diving equipment. It snaps onto the line, pointing in the direction of the nearest exit. It is thoughtfully designed to provide unambiguous directional information in all conditions, with or without the advantage of sight. When lost in a cave, as in life, I have found it is quite useful to have reliable truth within arm’s reach.

Gifted to me by my husband to symbolize some of the turning points in my life. Becoming a wife and a mom are two of my greatest achievements and I do it with class, grace and style.

Kimberly Porter

My grandchildren are my greatest blessings in life …. they bring sunshine and joy to every minute of every day … my legacy and a constant reminder that each day should be filled with laughter and love.

Shannon Latham

Each of my boys has a copy of this “Warrior Weekend” Bible from the father-son retreats that we have attended together at Sky Ranch, where I am honored to serve as a member of the board of directors. Working with and representing Sky Ranch and similar Christian organizations is the heart of my law practice.

One of the best and hardest things I have done was to commit, train, and participate in the Capital to Coast, a relay race from Austin to Corpus Christi. 14 women, 2 vans, 223 miles, 37 hours, and a lifetime of memories!

Kathy Rhotenberry

The top intersections of my talent and desire are marathon swimming and storytelling, so telling stories about swimming is pretty much the pinnacle of my existence. If you really want to know the best part of me, buy me a beer and ask me about the time I won the 20 Bridges Marathon Swim around Manhattan Island for my fiftieth birthday.

I keep my dad’s 1958 little league “Best Hitter” baseball on my desk to remind me of the love and support my parents have given me at every stage of my life.

The best part of being a TCU alum and lifelong fan of TCU athletics is now getting to share the joy of attending and watching games with my kids, who have also adopted the Frogs as their #1 team.

From New York City to Istanbul, this Wes Anderson inspired bag has a knack for finding the best adventures. Staying true to my pack-light principles, it’s often the only luggage I carry—even overseas!

Through the practice of law, I can serve the legal needs of my clients. By his involvement in the Knights of Columbus and our church, my grandfather taught me that a man must serve his neighbors. Before he passed away, my grandfather gave me this, his Knights of Columbus rosary, which reminds me that I’m called to serve.

I’d say I’m a pretty big Cowboys fan, so much so that I packed up my kids and moved to Texas, just to be close to the Cowboys! Even picked living in Plano because I knew that’s where Troy Aikman lived at the time.

Called dandia in Gujarati, these sticks are used in a traditional Indian folk dance celebrating the Hindu holiday Navrati. Dandia represent the wealth of culture and tradition central to my upbringing, and further embody my love of dancing. The resemblance to drum sticks is a nod to my years as a percussionist.
