Background & motivation
I am a lifelong Texan. Born and raised in Houston, I possess a strong tie to the community. I graduated cum laude with my bachelor's degree in Sociology from Baylor University. I also earned my law degree from South Texas College of Law, graduating magna cum laude. At South Texas College of Law, I received numerous accolades, including First Place at the 19th Annual National Health Law Moot Court Competition and the 2010 American Society of Writers on Legal Subjects Scribes National Brief-Writing Award, in the nationally recognized Advocacy Program and served as an assistant editor for the South Texas Law Review.
Prior to joining DOB, I worked in the litigation section of a law firm where she successfully represented defendants in a variety of complex civil litigation matters. Today, I utilize the same skills in order to successfully and zealously represent the plaintiffs—those who have been injured by the conduct and negligence of others.
Since 2012, I have focused my practice on the representation of the victims of mesothelioma. I have taken countless depositions involving adverse expert witnesses and corporate representatives. I am a zealous advocate for my clients and feel it is necessary to hold companies responsible for the damages caused by their poisoning of innocent people with asbestos containing products.
I am licensed to practice law in Texas and Missouri.
