 About Bill

Bill Bogle brought a wealth of expertise and unique insight to the areas of business litigation, corporate, banking, and oil and gas law.  A lifetime resident of Fort Worth, Bill was a practicing lawyer for more than 59 years (36 of these with Harris, Finley & Bogle). His connections ran deep in Texas legal circles. Bill served as the director of the Texas Association of Defense Counsel from 1983-1985, and he maintained a membership in that organization until his death in 2017.  

His clients benefited from his breadth and depth of knowledge, including that gained by serving for almost a decade as in-house counsel to a fully integrated oil and gas company. In addition, he had varied experience in international law.

Bill was admitted to the United States Supreme Court; the 5th, 6th and 11th U.S. Courts of Appeal; the U.S. District Courts for the Northern and Western Districts of Texas and the Western District of Oklahoma; and all Texas courts.
