David Junkin is from Texas and has lived and practiced in the Wimberley San Marcos for thirty years. He earned his law degree from the University of Houston and was licensed to practice law in 1991. He worked throughout the 1990s in a large litigation practice in Austin. Prior to 2000, David opened his own practice in Wimberley. He specialized in civil trial law and represented individuals, businesses, and property owner’s associations. David earned a reputation of being one of the top local litigators and was widely respected by other lawyers in the areas as well as clients, some of whom he represented in multiple disputes over the almost 20 years his office was open.
In 2018, the Texas Governor appointed him to a district court bench where he served with distinction for two years. David worked to streamline the court’s docket management and implement technology in the courtroom. He was the first one at the courthouse a lot of days as well as the last one to leave on some, continuing the hard work from private practice. He presided over dozens of criminal jury trials, multiple civil jury trials, and motions and pleadings dockets. When he ran for re-election, he was endorsed almost by the largest section of the local bar, but he fell short even though he ran closer than others in a big swing election.
After leaving the bench, he joined McGlothlin Junkin & Wilde as a partner. His practice again focuses on civil litigation, helping clients through contract disputes, property owner’s association issues, real property disputes, and complex family law cases.
