J. David  Dickson

David Dickson is serving as chair of the Texas Board of Legal Specialization (“TBLS”). TBLS is one of the largest legal board certification programs in the country.

TBLS serves the public by focusing on enhancing the quality of legal representation, and it helps lawyers to distinguish themselves in an increasingly competitive marketplace. It certifies attorneys in 22 specializations and paralegals in seven specializations.

David has been involved with TBLS for more than 30 years. In 1983, he became one of only 57 attorneys in the state to receive TBLS certification in three areas of real estate law — Commercial, Farm & Ranch, and Residential Real Estate.

A founding partner of Beard Kultgen, David has represented businesses and individual clients for 40 years. In addition to real estate matters, he primarily handles bankruptcy, commercial litigation, estate planning, probate, and transactional matters.

Beard Kultgen is dedicated to supporting the communities that it serves. Firm attorneys frequently volunteer in pro bono, charitable, civic, and educational initiatives. The Firm also is invested in the revitalization of downtown Waco with its newly renovated downtown office. In these and other ways, Beard Kultgen — which has assisted clients throughout Texas for more than 50 years – strives to better serve the community.
