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.

Explore Our Team in Depth

I was born in Chicago and grew up in the City, not leaving it until I went to law school at Georgetown in Washington, D.C. After law school I returned to Chicago for my first job as an attorney, so the City and its citizens molded me both as a person and as a professional. I am extremely proud of my home town and thus appreciate the pride Texans have in this great State.

I used to spend hours at the record store looking for hidden gems. Now a days I don’t have time to burn looking through vinyls but still enjoy listening to them as often as I can.

Kristin Bowen

Given to and worn by my sons, the crosses represent my admiration and pride as my sons mature driven by their faith, service to others and desire to become good-hearted citizens and neighbors.

From dusty streets of Congo to Texas green turfs, soccer has been an enormous part of my life. I find joy in coaching my kids this game I grew up playing barefoot with a self-made banana-leaf ball.

Robert Falay

Our family visits the Rangers Ballpark as often as we can to enjoy a game and family fun time. Go Rangers!

Kristin Bowen

When I learned how to play chess, I discovered it’s not about making the right move all the time – it’s about making the right move at the right time.

In addition to enjoying the physical challenge of cycling, I have often found the alone times on my bike as being good for thinking about strategies on pending cases.

Since becoming a legal assistant, 35 years ago, I’ve been collecting pencils from places I have traveled and from places my co-workers have traveled. They are from all over the world, each with a unique shape and all are a reminder that everything we do in life will leave a mark, so I try to be conscious of that in my everyday actions.

Kathy Rhotenberry

Soccer forms the underpinnings of so many enduring relationships in my life, I can’t imagine my life without it! Over the years, it has taught me invaluable lessons about leadership, teamwork, and physical health.

Spending time in both urban and rural India opened my eyes to the strength and hospitality of its people, the richness (and spiciness!) of its cuisine, and a greater awareness that despite many cultural differences, the people from two very different countries have much that can be learned from one another.

I went to art college in NYC and later studied painting at SMU and painting remains an important piece of my life. I continue to spend countless hours in museums and exhibitions for painters.

Laura Hern

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.
