About Gail

Learn Gail’s areas of practice.

Since 1985, I have been defending my clients’ rights in state court, federal court, and in domestic and international arbitration tribunals. I have represented publicly held companies, private companies, and individuals, providing them with legal advice and representation through all stages of the dispute process. My experience as both in-house and outside counsel has provided me with the unique ability to weigh the costs and benefits of proceeding with litigation or arbitration so clients can be well prepared and use their resources effectively. My current practice focuses on commercial and business disputes including contract, Deceptive Trade Practice Act, real estate, construction, employment, insurance coverage, fraud, and oil and gas disputes.

Unknown Attorney | Aug 12
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have known and collaborated with Gail for several years and highly recommend her work. Gail’s experience, intelligence, and competence make her a powerful and effective advocate for her clients. She always gives the matters entrusted to her careful and thorough attention, and represents her clients with the highest degree of ethics. You will enjoy working with Gail, whether as her client or as her co-counsel."
Litigation Attorney | Nov 28
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I endorse this lawyer's work. Gail and I actually worked together as associates in the trial department at Baker Botts back in the 1980s, and I had a high regard for her then. But we recently found ourselves as new counsel on opposite sides of a complicated trade secrets/employment covenant lawsuit not long ago. As I had expected, Gail was a fierce and competent advocate for her client. But she also demonstrated the good judgment and creativity that distinguishes exceptional lawyers from merely good ones. We were able to work out a deal -- a reasonable settlement that accommodated both sides' needs and abilities -- that had eluded all of the previous counsel who had worked on the case. Much of the credit for that should go directly to Gail, and I recommend her with pleasure and without reservation."
