“Leibowitz Never Quits.” This slogan embodies the energy and hard work David puts into representing his clients. **draw a link between motto and upbringing** David was born in Mercedes, Texas and grew up in Pharr, Texas. He is one of 12 children, and as he puts it, he is “8th from the top, 5th from the bottom and 2nd in the second half-dozen.” After graduating from Phar-San Juan-Alamo High School in 1976, David married his high school sweetheart, Delia Gutierrez and they went on to have three children, Jeremiah, Jessica and Jacob **include grandchildren?**. From the Rio Grande Valley, he attended The University of Notre Dame, where he earned a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting in 1979. After Notre Dame, David returned to Texas and earned his law degree at St. Mary’s University School of Law. He was admitted to the Texas State Bar in 1982.
 
After law school, David worked for Phil Hardberger, former Chief Justice of the 4th Court of Texas Appeals and former Mayor of San Antonio. In October 1984, with his wife’s help, David started his own law firm. In 2005, with a desire to help a greater number of Texans, David entered politics and was elected to the Texas House of Representatives from Texas’s 117th District and served in that position until 2010. Embodying the slogan “Leibowitz Never Quits”, during his time in office David authored, or joint authored, 229 bills aimed at bettering the lives of all Texans **add link to public service page with list of top 100 bills David passed**. Some of those bills include HB 18 which created an anti-bullying hotline enabling students to report incidents of bullying; HB 22 which requires sex offenders to register all email addresses, screen names or any other form of internet identification; and HB 23 which requires landlords to disclose to prospective tenants whether or not the property being leased has ever been used to manufacture methamphetamine and if so what the landlord has done to remove the hazardous materials from the property.**can add different bills if desired**
