Georgette is a progressive, motivated attorney with extensive first-chair pretrial, trial and appellate experience. She is comfortable in bench and jury trials, evidentiary hearings, and collateral attack proceedings, as well as mediation and negotiations.
Georgette has prosecuted and defended death penalty cases in federal court and represented the State in administrative proceedings where businesses contest state tax audit findings, which prepared her to successfully defend clients in matters including catastrophic accident, medical malpractice and premises liability insurance defense. She offers persuasive advocacy, outstanding research and writing skills, dedicated work ethic and a sunny personality.
Georgette may not have been born in Texas, but she got here as soon as she could, moving to Austin at age eighteen to attend the University of Texas where she earned a bachelor’s in philosophy and government. After a gap year, partly spent backpacking throughout Central America polishing her Spanish language and photography skills, she returned to Austin and attended law school at the University of Texas. She roots for the Longhorns, of course! She also has a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. If she isn’t working or training, you might find her on the many hiking trails around Austin with her dog Mochi.
