Christy is an associate with haltom & doan coming to us from Baylor Law School.  She is licensed to practice in both Texas and Arkansas state and federal courts.  Christy’s areas of practice are intellectual property, business and commercial, and personal injury litigation.  Christy relishes being on her feet in the courtroom, and her case load allows her to work with corporate clients to provide insight into the local nuances of trial practice and to serve as primary counsel on a series of cases for a single client.  Christy recently presented an argument before the United States District Court in the Eastern District of Arkansas where she successfully obtained a temporary restraining order in a complex business dispute.  She brings a fresh approach with a determined attitude to aide clients to a successful outcome.

In addition to her practice, Christy currently serves as Secretary of the Texarkana Bar Association as well as being on the planning committee for Hands on Texarkana, a local volunteer organization benefiting Texarkana and surrounding areas.  She is a member of Texarkana Young Lawyers Association where she formerly served as the Vice President (2013-2014) and President (2014-2015).
