Jim Walsh graduated from the University of Texas School of Law in 1975. In 1983, he was one of the three lawyers who founded the firm now known as Walsh Gallegos Treviño Russo & Kyle P.C. From the beginning the focus of the firm was on serving public schools—helping the people who help the kids.


In his career of over 40 years, Jim has provided training to all of the Education Service Centers in Texas, numerous statewide organizations, and hundreds of school districts. He is the principal author of The Educator’s Guide to Texas School Law, which is used as a textbook in many higher education programs. He has also authored The Common Sense Guide to Special Education Law. He was the longtime author of the popular “Law Dawg” column in the Texas School Administrators’ Legal Digest and currently produces a daily digital blog, The Law Dawg’s Ed Daily. (www.edlawdawg.com). He has taught school law at Texas State, Baylor and St. Edwards Universities.


Jim is a member of the Board of Directors for the national Council of School Attorneys. In 2017 he was recognized by his peers in the School Law Section of the State Bar with the Kelly Frels Lifetime Achievement Award.
