“My role is to listen.”

Jerry Eversole

January 11, 2013

Former Harris County Commissioner Jerry Eversole retained our firm to help him with a multi-year federal investigation into his friendship with a local contractor who did business with the county. Mr. Eversole was indicted on multiple charges relating to this friendship and, though some in the local media were all but demanding a prison term for him, his 2011 trial ended in a hung jury. Mr. Eversole steadfastly denied ever engaging in any official misconduct and we never relented in our defense of him on this issue. Ultimately, our firm negotiated a plea bargain for Mr. Eversole on the sole ground that he misled an FBI agent who came to his home, without warning, and asked Mr. Eversole a series of questions about his friend. Mr. Eversole received probation.
