Prior to establishing Begum, Tijerina and Willis, Mr. Tijerina worked in the corporate department of Cox and Smith Incorporated, where he focused mainly on legal matters involving general business transactions. Mr. Tijerina also promoted the firm’s interests abroad, particularly in Mexico, by speaking at seminars presented to Mexican entrepreneurs and corporations on the legal aspects of doing business in the United States.
