Cameron is a Local Representative for the Texas Lawyers’ Assistance Program and a member of the State of Texas Pro Bono College. In his leisure time, Cameron enjoys leaving civilization for his West Texas property near Big Bend National Park to hunt, hike, and pretend he is more rugged than he actually is.
