Don was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, to John Chastain "Pete" Weitinger and Eula Faye Williams Weitinger. He moved to Houston when he was four and has been a resident of Houston for over 74 years. He was very proud of his public school education and graduated from Lamar High School in 1952. He continued his higher education at Baylor University in Waco, Texas where he graduated with a B.A. in 1956 and received his J.D. in 1958.
Don loved being a trial lawyer and most especially defending and preserving the cherished right to a jury trial. His closing arguments and expert cross-examinations were truly legendary. While his home base was in Houston, you could find him in any county courthouse throughout Texas for over 53 years. He was a maverick in the court room successfully completing in excess of 600 jury verdicts - a feat which is nearly impossible for young trial lawyers to accomplish today. If you asked him what he did for a living, he would tell you that he was a country boy lawyer, usually introducing himself as "Don Weitinger, Boy Lawyer." Don served on the National Board of Directors for the American Board of Trail Advocates (ABOTA) for many years and was president of the Houston chapter ABOTA.
