Former Texas Assistant AG, US Trustee Trial Attorney Casey Roy Joins Austin Office of Ross, Smith & Binford, PC

Addition bolsters boutique firm’s regulatory and healthcare bankruptcy expertise

DALLAS – Former Texas Assistant Attorney General and U.S. Trustee trial attorney J. Casey Roy has joined the Austin office of the bankruptcy and mediation boutique Ross, Smith & Binford, PC.

“With 30 years of experience as a commercial bankruptcy attorney combined with his particular focus on regulatory and healthcare matters, Casey possesses a truly unique breadth of expertise that will greatly benefit our clients,” says name partner Jason Binford. “We are thrilled to have him join us as he enters the next chapter of his career.”

As a trial attorney for the Department of Justice’s U.S. Trustee Program, Mr. Roy was responsible for oversight of Chapter 11 and Chapter 7 bankruptcy proceedings in the Western District of Texas. He represented the Region 7 U.S. Trustee on first-day motions, employment of estate professionals, coordination with and appointment of official statutory committees and Chapter 11 trustees, litigation of enforcement actions including discharge objections, and trial of dismissal actions for abuse of the bankruptcy system.

“I worked with Jason when we were both at the Texas AG’s office and have followed the growth of Ross, Smith & Binford. I have always been impressed by the sophistication and precision of this firm’s attorneys, and as I looked toward a return to private practice, this opportunity was a natural fit,” says Mr. Roy.

Prior to joining the USTP, Mr. Roy was an Assistant Attorney General at the Office of the Texas Attorney General in Austin as a member of the Bankruptcy and Collections Division. Over the course of more than a decade of service, he represented Texas state agencies throughout the state in complex bankruptcy matters, with an emphasis on cases involving healthcare and environmental, energy and consumer protection matters. Before entering public service, he practiced at bankruptcy firms, representing parties in some of the largest cases in the United States, including billion-dollar asbestos-related bankruptcies.
