US: Texas AG returning to private practice

 |  November 18, 2015

Bernard L. McNamee, Chief of Staff in the Office of the Attorney General of Texas, announced today that he will be leaving his position and returning to private legal practice in Richmond, Virginia. Serving as Chief of Staff since January, McNamee, helped lead the transition efforts for the new administration and served a key role in legal, policy and administrative decisions for the office.

“Bernie McNamee has been a vital part of my staff throughout my first year as Attorney General,” Attorney General Paxton said. “His leadership on legal policy and his sage counsel have helped us chart a course toward a stronger Texas, and his contributions will have a positive impact on Texans for many years to come.”

“Bernie has been a strong ally in the fight for liberty and in defense of the Constitution,” said Chip Roy, Texas First Assistant Attorney General to Attorney General Ken Paxton. “Knowing Bernie’s previous experience in establishing and running Attorneys General Offices in Virginia, there was no doubt he would play a crucial role in establishing this office. We will all miss Bernie, but we thank him for his dedication and hard work on behalf of Texas.”
