With 25 years of combined legal experience as a civil and commercial litigator, TMCA credentialed mediator, negotiator, arbitrator, and appellate briefing attorney, Felicia’s practice now focuses on the resolution of disputes privately, fairly, efficiently, and professionally through mediation and arbitration (ad hoc and administered) proceedings.

After clerking for Chief Justice John Cayce at the Second Court of Appeals, Felicia started her law firm career in a Houston litigation boutique, and later was a Houston-based litigation partner in national and regional law firms. She has tried and settled cases pending in state and federal courts, as well as in arbitration. She has advised individuals and companies (privately-held and publicly-traded) in simple to complicated multi-party business disputes in a range of industries including energy, energy services, healthcare, insurance, and technology on a spectrum of claims including contract disputes, negligence, personal injury and wrongful death, business formation and dissolution, trade secrets, employment agreements, employment discrimination and harassment, business torts, corporate governance and fiduciary duties, nursing home operations, product liability, the UCC, and warranty claims among others.

Felicia has been recognized by her peers for inclusion among The Best Lawyers® in America in commercial litigation (2021-2023).
