Afton Cavanaugh was born in San Antonio but grew up in Austin, Texas. His favorite thing to do in Austin is to hike through St. Edward's Park, located off of Spicewood Springs Rd., to a waterfall. At that spot you can hear the occasional sounds of the city mixing with the sounds of nature and it perfectly captures one of the things that makes this city so great, its wonderful blend of big city and nature.
He discovered this great place while he attended the LBJ Science Academy in East Austin. During those same years Afton started in the restaurant business at the age of 15, and spent the next 10 years in the food service industry while he put himself through college. He obtained an associates degree in Paralegal Studies from Austin Community College and a BA in History from St. Edwards University in Austin, Texas.
After St. Edwards, Afton graduated Magna Cum Laude from St. Mary’s University School of Law and was named a Who’s Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities. While in law school, he worked for St. Mary’s specialty law journal, The Scholar: St. Mary’s Law Review on Race and Social Justice as a Staff Writer in his second year and as an Executive Editor in his final year. Right after graduating, Afton published an article in the Chicago Loyola Children's Legal Rights Journal concerning financial education.
Afton has experience in probate, estate planning, property law, and business law. When Afton is not working he enjoys spending time with wife, three little girls, their two pot bellied pigs, Henry and Daisy, and their two rabbits, Casper and Chloe. He serves on the board of directors for both the Pfluger Haus Foundation and the Council on at Risk Youth (CARY). Afton is an Ambassador for the Austin Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce and the Austin Independent Business Alliance.
