Alisha is a born advocate. She knew from elementary school that she wanted to follow a family tradition and become an attorney. She worked hard in college, graduating Summa Cum Laude from the University of Nebraska at Kearney. She then thrived at the University of Iowa College of Law (long ranked in the top twenty-five law schools in America) where she was chosen to serve as a research assistant for preeminent probate and estate-planning professor Sheldon Kurtz.
More than twenty years after entering law school, Alisha still believes strongly in the power of legal advocacy to safeguard citizens’ rights. Even by the standards of veteran attorneys, Alisha is comfortable in the courtroom. She honed her courtroom skills as a regional attorney for the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services where she represented the Department in courts across twenty-four East Texas counties.
Alisha has extensive experience in cases involving government agencies, family law, complex discovery, multi-party negotiation, and litigation. Alisha has been a member of the State Bar of Texas since 2004.
When Alisha is not in the office, she enjoys time with her family, the outdoors, as well as taking and teaching barre classes.
