“Jack Ayres is a formidable attorney for his clients, but he is also a communitarian and a person interested in personal and social justice. Jack Ayres became a volunteer at Parkland in a very special role and now for over 30 years he continues assisting us in getting court orders for patients that need treatment, saving hundreds of patients who might otherwise have died or suffered disability.  Jack did all of this pro bono.  Chris has followed in his father’s footsteps as an attorney, communitarian, advocate for the vulnerable, and the police and fire departments in our area.  He exemplifies professionalism and integrity just like his father.  These gentlemen are excellent attorneys with the energy to match their intellect.  I’m glad to have had this friendship now with both father and son.  This is not a Cinderella story because none of this is magic.  It is years of hard work and dedication to a profession, to individual clients and to the Dallas community.”
