Success Stories: Jackie Benson and Dan Downey: Mixing Law and Competitive Ice Hockey

HockeyskatesFrom the Off the Record column in The Houston Lawyer comes a short vignette of Jackie Benson, a securities and business litigator with Howrey, and Dan Downey, former judge of the 295th Harris County District Court, litigator, and adjunct professor of law at South Texas College of Law, who, in addition to their legal practices, both play competitive hockey.

Benson plays three to four times per week, covering various positions, including goalie, winger and defense. Incredibly, Benson, notwithstanding his Colorado roots, learned to skate only 3 1/2 years ago after watching an amateur hockey game with a friend.

In contrast, Downey grew up playing hockey. He now plays strictly defense in a league for players over the age of 40, and treasures the game as a good way to develop both group and self-discipline.
