Having practiced law for nearly two decades, I recognize every case is a story and all stories have multiple sides. Known for distilling all details into a compelling story, I choose to handle each unique case on an individual basis, allowing ample time and energy to advance my clients interests the right way and with integrity.
Being a business owner and understanding the challenges of operating a successful law firm equips me to guide upstream, midstream, and integrated energy companies, product manufacturers, mining concerns, and other businesses in resolving complex business disputes in and out of the courtroom. Clients value my thoughtful, strategic, and disciplined approach to providing smart, actionable solutions that help advance their business goals.
My litigation practice spans a broad range of commercial litigation issues, including breach of contract disputes, environmental and toxic tort matters, oil and gas litigation, and personal injury cases. Whether preparing cases for trial or interviewing pipeline engineers, forensic accountants, and other industry experts, my goal is for my clients to sleep at night knowing I’m managing their best interests. My affinity for numbers means I also pay close attention to the final result and financial impact of every case.
Graduating first in my class in Finance from the Business Honors Program at Texas A&M University, I apply an analytical approach to legal problem-solving. I received my law degree from the University of Houston Law Center, magna cum laude and Order of the Coif. Working closely with Morgan Copeland, I began my career in the Litigation Department of Vinson & Elkins LLP. Wanting to offer clients a less costly, more flexible environment with fewer conflicts, we became partners and have been running a litigation boutique since 2014. I’m honored to be one of few litigation boutiques owned and managed by a female attorney under 50.
When not managing the firm or handling client cases, I can be found sneaking in a tennis match, cooking, gardening, or enjoying time with my three children and their varied interests.
