AUSTIN (May 1, 2017) – The Texas Bar College congratulates Flowers Davis PLLC Attorney Catherine Chesley Goodgion on her membership as a Fellow in the College of the State Bar of Texas. The Texas Bar College is an honorary society of lawyers who are among the best trained attorneys in Texas, having completed at least double the Continuing Legal Education (CLE) required by the State Bar of Texas.
Goodgion is a Patent Prosecutor, licensed to practice before the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). To qualify as a Patent Prosecutor, an attorney must meet legal, scientific and technical qualifications and demonstrate a good moral character and reputation. In addition to earning a technical science degree and a law degree, they must apply for registration with the USPTO and pass a separate bar examination. Fewer than 1% of the attorneys in Smith County have met these requirements.
Goodgion also practices in the areas of Real Estate Transactions, Acquisitions & Development, Estate Planning, Document Preparation and Curative.
The Texas Bar College, the only organization in the United States formed for this purpose, is an honorary society of lawyers, chartered by the Supreme Court of Texas in 1981, to recognize and encourage lawyers who maintain and enhance their professional skills and the quality of their service to the public by completing at least double the required hours of continuing legal education each year. The College also sponsors or otherwise assists in educational activities of significant merit and widespread relevance and applicability to the legal profession.
