About Me

Beth Findsen has litigated complex commercial cases for 16 years, first in Houston, Texas, then in Arizona. Ms. Findsen became a member of the Texas Bar in 1997, and a member of the Arizona Bar in 2004.  In her first  year of practice at Baker Botts, LLP  in Houston, Texas in 1997, she second-chaired and litigated one case to jury verdict, with successful results for the client.  Her trial practice has encompassed  a broad array of business litigation matters including foreclosure defense; business torts; class actions; construction disputes; contract disputes; fiduciary disputes; officer and director liability; oil & gas matters; partnership cases;  real estate disputes; and securities fraud. Her clients have included large publicly-traded oil companies, national sports teams, hedge funds, national hotel chains, Fortune 400 employers, as well as consumer homeowners and individuals.  In her tenure at Cunningham, Darlow, Ms. Findsen assisted in the six-month trial of a famous probate case, one of a bundle of related cases that ultimately resulted in the landmark decision by the U.S. Supreme Court in Stern v. Marshall, elucidating the jurisdiction of Bankruptcy Judges vs. Article III judges to decide matters of state law that are subsumed into bankruptcy cases.


Ms. Findsen has represented both plaintiffs and defendants in state and federal courts before judges and juries.  Ms. Findsen has practiced before federal district courts in Texas and Arizona, the United States Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals,  the United States Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, the National Labor Relations Board, Arbitration Panels for securities arbitration, and Texas state courts; Arizona federal district courts, Arizona state courts.


Ms. Findsen graduated magna cum laude, ranked fourth in her graduating class of 168 students, and the top-ranked female graduate, from the University of Houston College of Law, a top-tier law school per the U.S. News & World Report Law School rankings in 1997, where she served as Articles Editor for the Houston Law Review, and was a member of the Order of the Coif and Order of the Barons.  In 1991, Ms. Findsen received her Bachelor of Science s from the University of Texas at Austin.


She received numerous awards including the Corpus Juris Secundum (formerly the AmJur)  awards for the top grade in Torts, Contracts, Criminal Procedure, and Civil Procedure.  She received the Susman Godfrey Award for Best Litigation Paper.  She worked with Texas appellate judge (since retired) of the Texas Court of Appeals-Div. 1-Houston on a special project resulting in a legislative change regarding the availability of interlocutory appeal of the denial of a special appearance by a non-resident defendant in Texas.
