State Bar of Texas Member Benefits Program
By:  John W. Shaw, Chair of the TYLA Board of Directors

From health insurance, to travel discounts, to rental cars, membership in the State Bar of Texas carries with it a ton of perks that we very often do not take advantage of as Texas lawyers.

The umbrella under which all of these amazing discounts reside is the Member Benefits and Services program of the State Bar of Texas. Their website is located here and includes a list of vendors from case management software, time and billing products, and virtual receptionist services to help every young lawyer in Texas with their practice.

If you visit the website you will find member discounts for as far as the eye can see. From the Texas Bar Private Insurance Exchange, where you can compare and purchase products from leading health insurance providers, to multiple benefit categories including, but not limited to (because what kind of lawyer doesn’t use that phrase), lifestyle, office, travel, and technology, there is a plethora of information available at your fingertips. Go ahead, click on over to the site and browse for yourself. I don’t think you will regret it. Now, if you’ll forgive me, I’m going to go and make sure that I have my Hotel Discount Promotional Code in my computer so that I can try and save 10%, 20%, up 50% on my next hotel stay.

John W. Shaw is a plaintiff’s personal injury lawyer with Patterson Law Group in Fort Worth, where he focuses on the representation of those injured by the negligence of another. He is also currently chair of the TYLA Board of Directors and has served in multiple capacities on the TYLA board since 2012.
