Since 2011, Justice Enoch has been the chairperson of appellate practice and a member of the litigation and government relations sections of the Austin-based firm Enoch Kever PLLC. He has spent more than 45 years practicing legal service, both as a judge and an attorney, beginning his career by earning a Bachelor of Arts in political science at Southern Methodist University in 1972. He was awarded with a Doctor of Jurisprudence by the Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law in 1975, and began practicing as an associate of Burford, Ryburn & Ford of Dallas.

Justice Enoch continued his rise, during which time he was named as the chief justice of the Texas Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in 1987, and a justice on the Texas Supreme Court in 1993, where he would serve for a decade before retiring from the role in 2003. While serving on the Texas Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, he continued his education, earning a Master of Laws from the University of Virginia School of Law in 1992. After stepping down from the Texas Supreme Court, Justice Enoch returned to appellate practice as a member of the litigation and government relations sections of Winstead PC, from which he departed after eight years to accept his current role with Enoch Kever PLLC.

Throughout the course of his career, Justice Enoch has been widely recognized for his leadership in the Texas judicial community, sitting on the executive board of the Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law, acting as a liaison from the Texas Supreme Court to the State Bar of Texas, and being named as a fellow of the Texas State Bar Foundation, the Dallas Bar Foundation and the American Bar Foundation, among other organizations. He has been the recipient of more than half a dozen awards, most recently the Austin Bar Association’s 2020 Larry York Mentor Award and a 2006 Distinguished Alumni Award from Southern Methodist University, and has been previously featured in several editions of Marquis Who’s Who.
