Learn Trista’s areas of practice.

Practice area

After spending the first part of my career with a consumer protection firm representing consumers in individual and class actions against debt collectors, banks, and credit reporting agencies, I went on to gain experience over the next several years as an associate in one of the largest law firms defending those same institutions; an in-house attorney for a top-five bank; an in-house attorney for a Texas-based retailer; and a debt consolidation company. Now, serve small and community banks as a Virtual Compliance Officer.

Personal Attention and Successful Resolution
Trista was instrumental in quickly resolving an issue that I had with a used car dealer. She is extremely knowledgeable in consumer law, professional, and efficient. She provided exceptional personal attention - taking the time to understand my situation, providing honest advice, and developing a course of action that led to a favorable resolution. This was the first time that I have ever needed an attorney, and it was a blessing to find such a capable consumer law attorney close to home in Montgomery County.

Quick response and very helpful
Krista replied to my request in a matter of moments and was very helpful. It doesn't seem that I need a lawyer at this moment but she helped me understand where my legal standing was in a long-past debt collection issue. I would definitely hire her if I find that I need a lawyer down the road.

Very responsive
Although Trista couldn’t assist me with my specific need she didn’t hesitate to respond to several questions I had. She was very quick and extremely friendly to correspond with. I hope not to need another attorney down the line; but should the need arise I would definitely reach back out to Trista.
