Hubert Crouch graduated from Southern Methodist University School of Law (SMU) in 1976. He earned Order of the Coif honors (top 10%), was elected President of the honorary Phi Delta Phi legal fraternity and served as an editor of the Journal of Air Law & Commerce.
Upon his graduation, Hubert joined Wynne and Jaffe, which merged with the Gardere firm to become Gardere & Wynne. While at Gardere, he represented a national funeral home in the headline-grabbing case involving the theft of a body from its underground crypt. In preparation for the case, Hubert hired retired former FBI psychological profiler, Clint Van Zandt, to analyze police reports and to develop a profile of the person who might commit such a gruesome crime. Although Hubert won the case on a preliminary motion, the disturbing grave robbery was never solved. The case continued to haunt Hubert for years. As a result, he wrote the twisting and harrowing Cried For No One, a fictional account inspired by the robbery.
Hubert continues to practice law while writing ripped-from-the-headlines legal thrillers.
