SHJ partner Dan Hinde has been elected to membership in the American Law Institute (ALI), the leading independent organization in the United States producing scholarly work to clarify, modernize, and otherwise improve the law. Along with 35 other new members, Dan joins an invited group of judges, law professors, and practicing lawyers who are dedicated to effecting legal developments—in both existing and emerging areas—that substantially influence the courts and legislatures as well as legal scholarship and education.
Dan joined SHJ in 2019 after 10 years as judge of the 269th District Court of Harris County, Texas. During his time on the bench, he tried nearly 300 cases and resolved more than 15,000 matters.
