Devotion is the consistent theme that transcends every aspect of her life. Outside of the office, Chelsie Garza’s life is dedicated to her husband and two children. Just as she dedicates herself to her family, she pours herself into each and every task she takes on. Chelsie recently tried a medical malpractice case for a client who will forever have a colostomy as the result of a botched hysterectomy. That trial resulted in the largest medical malpractice verdict in Texas for 2012.

Her dedication and devotion extends beyond zealous advocacy and precedent-setting rulings into legal consulting with law firms across Texas on medical malpractice claims.

Chelsie grew up sharing time between the small California Death Valley town Trona and the New York/New Jersey metroplex. This dichotomy between small town and big city illustrates her ability to fit in anywhere. She was educated on the East Coast, completing her undergraduate degree in New Jersey and law school in Washington, DC, yet she has put down roots in Texas.

Not only does Chelsie have an extensive background in helping those who have suffered horrible injuries; she has also worked on many pro bono cases and dedicated her time to humanitarian causes. One such pro bono matter positively changed the coming and going rule for the entire State of Texas with regard to workers’ compensation. Chelsie works to improve the community and is a member of the Pro Bono Advisory Committee for the Tahirih Justice Center. This organization was founded in 1997 to provide legal assistance to immigrant women and girls.
