Honors/Awards:
  • In April 2021, the Texas State Bar issues an official resolution to honor Attorney Feazell for his decades of remarkable legal service, both to the state and to its peoples. In the resolution, some of his most noteworthy experiences, accolades, and cases were discussed.For example, a few exemplary moments of Vic’s career that were featured in the resolution are:Licensed attorney since 1979 Six capital murder cases handled while a McLennan County district attorney $58-million verdict in a record-breaking libel lawsuit Memberships to the Texas Bar College, the National Trial Lawyers, and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers 2018 Outstanding Pro Bono Advocate Award from the Waco-McLennan County Young Lawyers Association The Texas State Bar also offered an official apology to Vic for the harm done to his law license decades ago during the Henry Lee Lucas false serial killer accusations scandal. Attorney Feazell adamantly stood up for Henry, who had been deliberately made a scapegoat for hundreds of murders by the Texas Rangers. In retaliation, the Rangers arrested Vic, attempted to destroy his reputation, charged him with five crimes, and threatened him with 80 years of imprisonment. After Vic was found Not Guilty on all charges by a Federal Jury, the Texas State Bar still made moves against his law license, which he deflected with a probated suspension. Vic successfully sued a news corporation for libel, which resulted in the largest libel verdict in U.S. history and its placement in the Guinness Book of World Records. The President for the Texas State Bar had this to say while issuing the formal apology: “[Vic’s case] is one where somebody stood up, did the right thing, stood his ground, and, in time, has been proven right. Two juries have proven him right. And this is why I honor Vic because he did do the right thing. […] He stood up for the oppressed. […] If there’s anybody who deserves an award for doing the right thing, I believe it’s you.”, State Bar of Texas Resolution Honoring Vic Feazell, State Bar of Texas , 2021
