Texas bond lawyer William T. Avila says that after more than 20 years as a bond lawyer with large firms, it's time to establish his own. In addition to handling bond issues for a number of Texas school districts, including several qualified zone academy bond issues, he has worked as bond counsel and underwriters' counsel for transactions that financed economic and industrial development programs, housing developments, schools, and hospitals. In addition to his San Antonio office, Avila has an office-sharing arrangement with an attorney in Houston and with a firm of Mexican lawyers to share space in San Antonio and McAllen and in the Mexican cities of Monterrey, Mexico City, Matamoros, Reynosa, and Queretaro.
