State Bar of Texas to Honor Amarillo Judge, Attorney
By Karl Wehmhoener | firstname.lastname@example.org
AUSTIN -- The State Bar of Texas honored District Court Judge John B. Board and Amarillo attorney Mark S. Logsdon with resolutions for their contributions to the legal profession today.
District Court Judge John B. Board
Board has served as judge of the 181st State District Court in Potter and Randall counties since 2000, after working as a litigator. In October 2010, he was instrumental in creating a regional drug court program covering Potter, Randall, and Armstrong counties in an effort to reduce the number of drug and alcohol offenders who violate probation.
The program was an offshoot of Accountability Court, which Board helped to create in 2007 to address offenders who violated probation, often because of drug or alcohol problems.
Mark S. Logsdon
Logsdon is a partner in Mullin Hoard Brown LLP in Amarillo, where his practice involves complex civil litigation. He is a member of the State Bar of Texas and the Amarillo Area Bar Association, for which he is a past secretary and treasurer.
Logsdon is actively involved with the Amarillo Area Bar Association and Foundations Trial Academy, a trial-advocacy seminar for new or inexperienced lawyers focusing on jury selection and direct examination.
He is a past member of the Amarillo Area Young Lawyers Association, for which he served as a director for many years and as president from 2007-2008. He also has served on the Leadership Amarillo and Canyon Board of Directors from 2004-2008, including a year as president, and on the boards of the Amarillo Area Bar Foundation, the Amarillo College Foundation, and the Amarillo Hospital District.
