I have been practicing law in Dallas, Texas for over 35 years and during that time have been active in the legal community in a wide variety of leadership roles. I have served on the District 6A Grievance Committee, I’m a Past President of the Dallas Trial Lawyers Association and I’m a Past President of the Dallas Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates.

I’m passionate about our clients and each and every family that we represent receives our complete meticulous attention. If we can't give your case 100%, then we don’t take your case. Our civil trial work covers a wide range of experience including catastrophic personal injury, wrongful death, construction accidents, pipeline explosions, truck wrecks, burn injuries, traumatic brain injury, sexual abuse, product liability, and business disputes.

I have been recognized as a Texas Super Lawyer every year since its first publication began in 2003. A super lawyer designation is conferred upon the top five percent of attorneys in the state. I have also been recognized by Texas Monthly as one of the top 50 female lawyers in Texas since 2006. I have been selected by my peers as one of the top hundred lawyers in all areas of practice in Dallas/Fort Worth since 2005. In 2010, Texas Monthly awarded me the honor of being one of the 100 Best Lawyers in the entire State of Texas. In 2010, I was also chosen as one of the 15 top personal injury lawyers in Dallas by D Magazine. I was also honored as one of the Best Lawyers in America publication which is a result of extensive and comprehensive evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers. I’m a frequent lecturer on a wide range of legal education topics and has served as guest lecturer at Southern Methodist University Law School. In addition to authoring numerous articles on legal ethics and trial techniques, Carmen has been a frequent presenter at the Dallas Bar Association, Texas Trial Lawyers Association, and the State Bar of Texas.
