Limestone County commissioners learned more Georgetown attorney George Hyde in their first interview of a candidate for new legal representation.
Their interaction took place at the Nov. 28 commissioners court meeting and lasted more than half an hour. Hyde gave examples of cases in which his firm had successfully represented various Texas counties and also spoke of his view of the attorney-client relationship.
County Judge Daniel Burkeen reminded the court that Hyde had already represented the county on an insurance case because he is on the Texas Association of Counties’ list of approved attorneys.
Hyde told the court that he had dedicated his law practice to the representation of local government.
