    Mary Ann Flowers Fergus Overview

    I grew up with a Father as a Federal Judge for the Northern District of Texas, and a Grandfather who practiced law for 75 years in Forth Worth, Texas. Since the age of 14, I assisted in all aspects of The Flowers Law Firm, a general practice firm. After graduating from law school, I went into private practice with a firm with emphasis on Environmental Law. I have also participated in many pro bono matters, including the Texas Young Lawyers annual project. I created, founded and raised the seed money for the Abilene Performing Arts Company (non-profit) which has grown to 500 students in 10 years.
