Law Clerk


Dawson Townsend currently serves as a law clerk for Anderson Legal Group. In 2021, Dawson received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminal Justice from Sam Houston State University, graduating summa cum laude with a perfect 4.0 GPA. During his time at Sam Houston, Dawson studied a wide range of topics, from sociology to trauma and crisis intervention and communications. As such, Dawson understands the emotional struggles clients face during divorce and custody battles, and his experience allows him to guide clients through these difficult times.

In addition to clerking, Dawson is completing his final semester of law school at Texas A&M University School of Law. Dawson is a member of the Black Law Students Association and competed for Texas A&M’s Moot Court teams. Moot Court allows students to develop their oral advocacy skills by arguing mock cases before a hypothetical Supreme Court. Dawson found great success in moot court, reaching the semi-finals and placing 4th in the nation in the National Black Law Student’s Association Moot Court Competition.

However, being a strong advocate also requires excellent drafting skills. In the summer of 2023, Dawson was honored to be selected as the summer intern for Chief Justice Nathan Hecht of the Texas Supreme Court. While at the Supreme Court, Dawson edited opinions and drafted a memorandum analyzing a medical malpractice case and presented it to the Court, recommending the court grant review. Based on Dawson’s analysis, the Court granted the petition with a unanimous vote, thus hearing oral arguments on the case. There is no better drafting experience than writing for the highest court in the state, ultimately shaping the law of the entire state.

Following successfully passing the July 2024 Bar Exam, Dawson will join the team as an associate attorney.
