Winstead Adds Insurance-Focused Attorneys to Austin Office

May 10, 2007

Texas law firm Winstead PC announced it has added two new attorneys, Jeff Autrey and Keith Hopkinson, in its Business/Transaction Department. Autrey represents insurance and insurance-related clients on regulatory matters and corporate transactions. Hopkinson helps clients through regulatory and legislative legal matters.

Autrey began his career as staff counsel for the State Board of Insurance and eventually served as general counsel for the agency. He later oversaw the Texas Medical Insurance Trust when he worked for the Texas Medical Association. In 1987, Autrey and Winstead shareholder Forrest Roan formed Roan & Autrey which subsequently merged with Cantey & Hanger, his former law firm before joining Winstead.

Autrey is a member of the American and Austin Bar Associations and the Federation of Regulatory Counsel. Autrey received his J.D. from the University of Texas School of Law in Austin.

Hopkinson, also formerly with Cantey & Hanger, started his practice with the nation’s largest insurance trade association, which put him in front of legislative committees and state regulators in 15 states. In 1997, he went into private practice and he joined Cantey & Hanger as a partner in 2001.

He is a member of the Illinois, Missouri and Texas Bar Associations. Hopkinson received his J.D. from the John Marshall Law School, Chicago, Illinois.

Winstead has offices in Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio, and The Woodlands, Texas; and Washington, D.C.
