Why I Give Back: Bill Asher

Bill graduated from South Texas College of Law in Houston and this year is celebrating his 44th year practicing law! We are very fortunate that Bill decided to leave Houston and move to San Antonio when he retired from the full-time practice of law. Bill has extensive expertise in real estate and healthcare and has also extended his practice areas to include wills, estates and probate law, expunctions and non-disclosures in his pro bono capacity. Prior to moving to San Antonio, Bill volunteered with Houston Volunteer Lawyers for many years, and after his move to south Texas, he became a mediator at the Hill County Dispute Resolution Center in Kerrville, where he served as vice president and director. Bill is a member of the pro bono college of the State Bar of Texas, and he has served on several boards including the real estate law section of the Houston Bar Association, the scholarship committee for Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center, and the advisory committee for Texas Public Radio.

Bill’s service with SALSA began in 2017 as a real estate mentor supporting other volunteers in that practice area. Bill soon became a fixture at SALSA’s monthly Veterans’ Legal Advice Clinics and was one of the attorney volunteers that pioneered the weekly clinics held at the Veterans’ Outreach and Transition Center, where he has provided valuable advice and representation on a wide array of civil legal matters. His compassion and commitment to his clients is evidenced by their desire to keep in touch with him long after the conclusion of his representation and even send him holiday greeting cards. Bill has been recognized as our Volunteer of the Year and we are incredibly grateful for the hours he has selflessly given to this program and its clients and for the guidance he has provided to our other volunteers. Bill encourages other local attorneys to look into the many volunteer opportunities SALSA has available and get involved. Thank you, Bill!
