DO THE RIGHT THING: THE BUCK FAMILY DID AND PROVED IT IN A COURT OF LAW
Brian and Kate Buck respect the land and play by the rules. Working with Plateau biologists, they carefully manage their property near Austin in ways that sustain native flora and fauna, including a unique Hill Country bird, the golden-cheeked warbler.

The Bucks enlisted Braun & Gresham, PLLC and took their case to court – and won.
