Her practice areas are transitioning to also include a variety of business transactional matters as well as commercial litigation.
Ms. Urquhart received her B.A. in English Writing and Rhetoric from St. Edward's University in Austin. While attending South Texas College of Law, Ms. Urquhart clerked for Judge John Donovan, (then presiding in the 61st District Court, Harris County) and currently a Justice for the 14th Court of Appeals, and subsequently for Judge Al Bennett (then presiding the 61st District Court, Harris County) and currently a judge in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas.
