About me



Urged by his desire and hard-work
mentality, Clay A. Butler, after working for two different and well
respected law firms, where he garnished valuable courtroom and
transactional experience, decided to open The Butler Firm. A client
focused law firm in the central Texas area.


Clay A. Butler
enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps as an infantryman at the early age of
17. It was there that Clay began to learn the underlying principles
which helped construct the foundation of the The Butler Firm into what
it is today. Those principles are: Honesty; Organization; and


Clay firmly believes that with these fundamental
principles along with a strong work ethic and hard-earned experience,
success and results will flow down to The Butler Firm's clients.




law school, Clay graduated near the top of his class. He was a finalist
in multiple mock trial competitions and was invited to join Phi Delta
Phi, an internationally known legal honor society. Clay was also
awarded a partial scholorship based on his legal brief writing skills.


law school Clay joined a medium sized law firm outside of Ft. Worth,
Texas. Acknowledging his legal knowledge and hard work attitude, the
managing partner of the firm immediately gave Clay his own case load
and client base. During this time Clay represented all forms of
businesses and handled everything from general litigation to complex
contract work.


Clay eventually moved back home to Austin, Texas
where he started The Butler Firm. Currently, The Butler Firm represents
numerous businesses and inviduals throughout the central Texas region.
Being the managing partner has allowed Clay to develop invaluable
experience directly benefiting The Butler Firm's current and future


Besides being a lawyer, Clay Butler is an entrepreneur
and business owner himself and he understands the needs and
requirements to successfully develop and run a business. In his
downtime Clay enjoys spending time with his wonderful wife, Salina, and
is looking forward to starting a family.
