(Houston, Texas) November 21, 2011 - Attorney Daniel D. Horowitz III, a partner at Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Sorrels, Agosto & Aziz in Houston, Texas, recently spoke to students at the University of Texas (UT) on the dangers of hazing in the Greek community.
As a member of the board of directors of UT's Silver Spurs Alumni Association, Mr. Horowitz returns every semester to UT to speak with the incoming and active members of the Silver Spurs. "The purpose of the meeting is to discuss hazing, alcohol consumption, individual responsibility and accountability, as well as becoming a leader of the University," he noted.
This year, the discussion surrounding the dangers of hazing was particularly relevant - especially in light of recent allegations against the university's local chapter of Kappa Alpha Order. The fraternity was suspended from its national organization in June after it was discovered that the local chapter was sponsoring adult entertainment shows for recruiting purposes. The university continues to investigate allegations of hazing related to these adult shows.
Named a Texas Rising Star, attorney Daniel Horowitz has been recognized as up-and-coming Texas attorney under the age of 40 since 2008. He graduated from the University of Texas with Silver Spur honors and then went on to receive his law degree from South Texas College of Law Houston in 2002. In 2008, he became board-certified in personal injury trial law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
As a frequent presenter at legal workshops and seminars, his presentation to the Silver Spurs last month further illustrates his commitment to the community. Mr. Horowitz serves on the board of the Texas Association of Civil Trial and Appellate Specialists (TACTAS) and is particularly passionate about organizations that help people who might not otherwise receive justice. He has been recognized for his pro bono contributions to the Texas Trial Lawyers Association. He also serves on the board of directors for the State Bar of Texas.
