Board Appoints General Counsel For Allen ISD

The Board of Trustees approved the appointment of Deron Robinson as general counsel for the school district on January 9.

Robinson has worked as a school attorney for the Walsh Gallegos Trevino Russo & Kyle P.C. since 2012. He also worked as a school attorney for Henslee Schwartz LLP from 2007 – 2012.

As Allen ISD general counsel, Robinson will provide in-house legal support to the superintendent, designated staff and board of trustees.  He will provide legal services in areas such as personnel, student services, contracts and state regulations.

He is a graduate of the Texas A&M University School of Law in Fort Worth and completed his undergraduate work at Texas A&M University in College Station.

“The new general counsel position will provide us with more timely legal services,” according to Superintendent Dr. Scott Niven.  “As the school district grows and our legal needs increase, the in-house counsel will also significantly reduce our legal expenses”

Robinson has worked closely with Allen ISD through Walsh Gallegos, added Niven, “and that experience over the years will be invaluable as we move forward.”
