Benny Agosto Jr., (pictured) a partner in Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Sorrels, Agosto & Friend of Houston, will deliver the keynote address at the Dec. 14 graduation ceremony at South Texas College of Law in Houston.
Agosto, a 1995 graduate of South Texas, said he will talk about a lawyer’s responsibility to not only represent clients, but also to be a “true advocate” for people in need.
He said South Texas is known for training lawyers to be advocates, and graduates need to take that to heart and “jump in, not sit idle.”
Agosto, a trial lawyer who was a teacher before he became a lawyer, said it is a “great honor” to speak at the hooding ceremony for the students who are graduating. The ceremony is at the Hilton Americas in downtown Houston.
