Needless to say, he is not your ordinary attorney, and he is no ordinary man. To truly understand Tony Buzbee, one must look beyond his professional accolades. When you get to the heart of the matter, it is the firm foundation of his upbringing that crafted him into the superstar he has become today. Cass County leaves an indelible mark on those who have ever called it home. Like so many other young people from this quiet area, Buzbee could not wait to get away to the hustle and bustle of big city life, but he could not stay away for long. His 7,000-acre ranch in Northeast Texas is not just a testament to his success, it has been the perfect home away from home, bringing him back to his roots and giving him a place to step away. At one point, Buzbee admits, he and his friends used the property for “all kinds of dumb things, like blowing up cars and shooting competitions. I owned a tank, and we’d run over old cars with it,” he said. But today, this beautiful acreage, dubbed Antioch Buzbee Ranch, has been set aside to fulfill a greater purpose. “I love this area. It’s very unique. Everywhere is changing and growing, but this place isn’t much different from when I was growing up. Everything I do now is the same as I did back then, just on a different scale. I wandered these woods, trespassed, and fished in other peoples’ ponds, and hunted on other people’s land. My family has been in this general area for five generations, and my parents still live in the home I grew up in. When I originally bought this place, it was to be near them,” said Buzbee. “They live about a mile up the road.” In 2021, Buzbee married the gracious and beautiful Frances Moody, whose family name appears on buildings, bridges, and banks across Texas. Many are familiar with Moody Gardens in Galveston, Texas, and The Moody College of Communication at the University of Texas. “I knew her family for years and sat on a bank board with her father. I obviously knew who she was since the Moody family is probably the most charitable family in Texas,” said Buzbee. “We kept on running into each other at charity events—one time specifically at a valet stand,” said Frances. “I was leaving, he was just arriving. I guess that shows the difference in our personalities,” she said with
