History

A century ago Robert E. “Judge” Underwood established his law practice in Amarillo. Judge Underwood studied law at the University of Texas for one year then returned home and became a teacher in Jack County, Texas. He continued his legal studies in the evenings from home.  Judge Underwood moved to Amarillo in 1906, became Potter County Attorney, and then, in 1912 started his own practice.

Judge Underwood left a legacy of leadership and excellence that has transcended his lifetime. He lived by the thought:

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more,
do more and become more, you are a leader.”
