Prior to his work as an attorney, Mr. Northcutt was a public school instructor, teaching English and History for more than 24 years. He participated in the Houston Bar Association Teach for Texas program that gave 6th graders an introduction to the Texas Judicial System and was a grader and judge for the Kay Bar Association for the SBOT Law Day Essay Contest.

Mr. Northcutt decided to attend law school after participating in an SBOT Law-Related Education seminar while teaching AP Government.
