Heather K. Kubiak


Ms. Kubiak is an attorney, mediator, and arbitrator who has represented businesses in a variety of complex commercial litigation, including insurance coverage, directors and officers disputes, and contract disputes.

She has also been active in other community theatre engagements, including the 60th Anniversary Gala for the Houston Area Women's Shelter and the 10th Annual Celebration of the Minority Corporate Counsel Association. Ms. Kubiak has also served on the HBA's Gender Fairness Committee for three years.


Ms. Kubiak earned her J.D., with honors, from the University of Texas School of Law in 1998, where she worked on the Review of Litigation and published an article in the Texas Journal of Women and the Law. She also performed for the law school's theatre troupe, Assault & Flattery. In 1994, she earned her A.B. in English from the College of William & Mary.
