About Paula

Learn Paula’s areas of practice.

I currently represent clients in a range of litigation matters, including complex aviation-related business litigation on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants, as well as products liability and catastrophic personal injury litigation, through both trial and appeal. I was named "Best of the Best" in the area of Civil Litigation by the Texas Lawyers Group in 2012 and selected for Rising Star Super Lawyers for the past two years.

Prior to attending law school, I ran a successful translation practice (Spanish/English), principally focusing on legal and commercial transactions. This gave me a unique opportunity to address legal issues and concerns frequently raised in commercial transactions—with an international twist. This experience renewed my interest in the law and ultimately inspired me to attend law school.
