Mark Hines

Cleburne, Texas

Mark and his family have lived in Cleburne for many years. He was born in Corpus Christi, Texas, where his father practiced medicine. At the age of 16, Mark became an Eagle Scout, an accomplishment he is still proud of today. After attending college at St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas (where he double majored in Business Administration and Finance), Mark attended law school at The University of Houston. After practicing briefly in Corpus Christi and San Antonio, Mark decided to move to Cleburne. His initial plan was to live in a new place, meet some new people, and move on after a couple of years. Mark’s plans changed quickly after he met his wife-to-be, a local girl named Lindsey. Many years later, and after two kids, two horses, two dogs, Mark is happily stuck in Cleburne and has no plans of leaving any time soon.

Mark is a Member of the Texas Bar Association and the Johnson County Bar Association. Mark is also a member of the Real Estate, Probate, and Trust Section of the State Bar of Texas.

Mark also enjoys being active in the local community. He is the Treasurer of the Johnson County Bar Association, is on the Leadership Committee for the Chamber Of Commerce Young Professionals, and enjoys getting involved at his local church.
