In 2019, Austin obtained his Juris Doctor from the University of Tulsa College of Law, and he is a member of both the Texas and Montana State Bar Associations.

Austin’s professional career began in January 2020 when he joined the Lawyers Title Commercial operation of the Fidelity National Title Group.
