Biography

Immediately after law school, Anderson clerked for the Hon. Albert Rendlen on the St. Louis Court of Appeals for 18 months. While he was there, his son, Nathan Douglas Anderson, was born and his wife Cheryl accepted a fellowship to get her Ph.D. at the University of Missouri in Columbia. While Anderson was in law school, she worked as an artist at the medical school. She became interested in non-traditional forms of education and got her MA his third year.

Anderson started with the Missouri Attorney General's office in January 1977. He worked in the Administrative Division, the Antitrust Division and the Litigation Division. When Cheryl was awarded her Ph.D., she accepted an assistant professor position with the University of Texas at Austin. Anderson became licensed and went into private practice, focusing on litigation.

After four years, Anderson joined the firm of Davis & Davis, doing medical malpractice litigation, as well as various litigation matters. He became Board Certified in civil trial and personal injury law.

In 1990, Anderson joined Brin & Brin PC, in San Antonio, again doing primarily medical malpractice litigation. Cheryl took a position at Incarnate Word College (now University of the Incarnate Word) and Anderson continues to practice with Brin & Brin PC.

Anderson has taught the Medical Malpractice Seminar since 2003.
