Overview

Areas of Practice

Aimee's practice focuses on complex, high-stakes business and tort litigation for corporate entities throughout Texas and the United States. Aimee has extensive experience prosecuting and defending claims in a variety of industries, including claims in the energy, health care, insurance, multilevel marketing, construction and financial industries. In addition to general counsel, owners and executives, Aimee’s clients include third-party administrators, non-profit entities and membership organizations. Her work often comprises multiple suits in different jurisdictions with a regulatory component. Clients know and respect Aimee as a creative and collaborative team member, as well as an ally who anticipates issues and takes time to ensure they always know the status of their case. Her clients value her as an approachable, caring advocate who has a 360-degree perspective of both legal and business needs.

Aimee is a boots-on-the-ground trial lawyer with years of courtroom and behind-the-scenes experience. She manages cases from start to finish – regardless of their size or budget – developing strategies, preparing witnesses, selecting juries and arguing motions. Aimee has prosecuted and defended cases in both state and federal proceedings across the U.S., including the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit and the Fifth Circuit, as well as the Texas and California Courts of Appeals.

Aimee also maintains a construction practice. Having “grown up” working with and around family and friends in the construction industry, Aimee is able to bring a unique and practical perspective and understanding to each construction matter she handles. Aimee regularly works with clients to negotiate and revise commercial construction contracts, to address lien claims and related payment issues, and has represented plaintiffs and defendants in construction defect cases.
