    30 years

I have been licensed to practice law since 1989 and have practiced primarily in the areas of business transactional law and business litigation.  I represent businesses from incorporation to dissolution, and handle almost all areas in between - I provide general business advice, review and prepare contracts that are specific to my client's situation, prepare debt financing agreements (including revolving credit facilities and security agreements), and prepare private placement offerings.  My clients are primarily private companies.

 

In addition to my business law practice, I also handle attorney ethics and grievance defense cases.  I have successfully represented many attorneys throughout the State of Texas, some of whom are very prominent attorneys, in grievance defense cases.  The vast majority of the grievance matters I have handled were dismissed at the grievance level, though I have also won dismissals of some defense cases by summary judgment and after trial on the merits.  I have testified as an expert in ethics in many grievance matters on behalf of attorneys who had grievances filed against them and in a civil dispute between a client and his attorney.

 

I am a big believer in plain English, and I make significant efforts to make sure my clients can read and understand their contracts.

 

Until COVID-19 hit in early 2020, I was active in The Rotary Club of The Woodlands and participated in many of our Club's community service projects.  I also founded and served for many years as a member of the Board of Directors and as Secretary of The Woodlands Rotary Club Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation.  I incorporated the Foundation and applied for and obtained its 501(c)(3) designation.  TWRCF provides need-based college scholarships for students at local high schools and local colleges, as well as support for other local chartities and community service projects.

Excellent Attorney
Sharon is excellent at protecting your business from bad actors trying to cause harm to your livelihood! She did great work for me.
Posted by Richard | September 19, 2014
An excellent Legal resource
A very experienced and personable Attorney to address a diversity of Legal issues. I have had the pleasure with working with Sharon Conway on several legal matters ranging form: establishing a Private LLC in Texas, reviewing a JV with a foreign entity, and most recently, an Employment Law matter. In all matters, Sharon has demonstrated an excellent knowledge of the Law and provided both prompt and viable alternative scenarios that made the go-forward decisions easier to make.

I would absolutely recommend Sharon to anyone in need of a great business attorney. She has come to our company's rescue on several occasions, and she truly cares about us and our success. I don't see how you could find anyone better!

Client Review
Very thorough and surprisingly crafty. She helped me in a contract law and when disputes arose with the contract it was completely soundproof and the opposing party dropped it.

Ms. Conway helped us choose and form the proper legal structure for our company. She also helped us with trademarking our business name and symbols. She is trustworthy and knowledgeable and I would highly recommend her to anyone needing legal advice.

Awesome attorney and VERY effective in the courtroom.

President/CEO
Sharon was right on top of my legal issue and was very knowledgeable about the law and the procedures required to maneuver in the courts. She sought victory from the beginning in spite of the fact the victory meant no monetary reward. She's what I expected from a lawyer, a winner that gets the job dne.
