Board Member, Class of 2023
Attorney, Hamilton Wingo LLP
Damian dedicates himself to helping those without the voice and resources to defend themselves. As a former Dallas County Assistant District Attorney, he worked alongside local law enforcement and represented the State of Texas in felony cases to protect the community from serious crimes. Now, as a trial attorney at Hamilton Wingo, LLP, Damian helps victims of catastrophic injuries put their lives back together. For Damian, the strength of the community is measured by how people share their resources and lift up those with the fewest among them. The community is strongest, however, when everyone has an equal say and a fair shot at reaching for their dreams. Damian believes that members of the community have a duty to help where and when they can.
For a few years now, Damian has been a member of the Board of Directors for the nonprofit Focus on Teens, which services the homeless population of Dallas ISD and Fort Worth ISD. Damian is a panel-member of the City of Dallas Zoning Board of Adjustment, which is a position appointed by the Dallas City Council. He was a member of the Emerging Leaders in Philanthropy Cohort with the Communities Foundation of Texas, and a former co-chair of the Lawyers Against Domestic Violence Committee in the Dallas Association of Young Lawyers. Damian was also a member of the Leadership Class of the Dallas Breakfast Group.
