About the Firm

Our law firm has roots in Wichita Falls and the North Texas area going back over a century. As part of Midwestern State University’s centennial celebration, in 2022, the firm was recognized by the University as one of Wichita Falls’ oldest businesses.

Joseph N. Sherrill, Jr. and Frank Gibson, our firm’s namesakes, each began their practice of law in Wichita Falls in 1957. Frank Gibson who passed away in 2011 was a native of Wichita Falls and graduated from the University of Texas School of Law. He was one of the original directors of American National Bank, and his practice included oil and gas and banking. Joseph N. Sherrill Jr., also a Wichita Falls native, graduated from Harvard Law School in 1955. Mr. Sherrill served on the Board of Directors of First National Bank of Byers for 52 years, and his practice included banking, oil and gas, estate planning and representation of charitable organizations; he passed away in 2013.

Our current attorneys are Matt Anderson, Tony Bates, Richard Bowersock, Peyton Cannedy, Caven Crosnoe, Erwin Davenport, Todd Davenport, Barbara Gibson, Bob Goff, Eliot Hardee, Ken Hines and Michelle Wurster. Our administrative staff includes Lesley Chasteen, Carla Ellison, Dena Hardin, Janice Scanlan, Shannon Sharer, Chris Smith and Kristen Terrell.

Our lawyers represent a wide variety of corporate, banking, institutional and individual clients in the Wichita Falls, Austin and Texas Hill Country areas, and they continue the tradition of active participation in the legal profession and the community. Members of our firm are involved in the professional, social, religious, civic and political life of our communities, serving on numerous boards and nonprofit organizations.

As we continue to build our Sherrill & Gibson, PLLC team, we are both proud of and humbled by our wonderful heritage in the practice of law. We look forward with resolve and enthusiasm to continuing our tradition of delivering excellent legal services to our clients.
