Areas of practice: Intellectual property law. My practice focuses on all aspects of business and intellectual. I routinely advise clients on all aspects of the development of a business.
Family: Husband, Randy. Spoiled pets – Scamp and Marilyn.
Favorite music/musician: Steve Vai.
Favorite place to find albums: Vintage music stores or those few places left that actually sell albums and CDs.
Memorable vacation: A week in Cabo San Lucas with the only decision of each day – which pool do I lounge in?
Mentors/heroes: Louise Raggio, whose tireless efforts have paved the way for women’s property rights and the rights of women lawyers in Texas. My grandmother, Grace Dawson, who literally has wrestled more than one alligator to the mat in her day.
Most important career lesson: An attorney must stand on her own two feet. Be diligent in honing your legal careers and stay singularly focused on providing clients with high quality legal services in furtherance of the clients’ goals and desired results. An attorney who delivers quality and results to clients will build long lasting clients relationships that will enable you to pursue your career goals and dreams, whatever those may be.
