Ms. Wright enjoys assisting energy clients maneuver through the property acquisition process, enabling them to construct legally-sound and eventually-marketable asset inventories.  She has handled pipeline acquisition projects statewide, including right-of-way/easement negotiation and condemnation/eminent domain litigation. She also handles complex litigation relating to all aspects of the oil and gas industry including construction and interpretation of oil and gas leases, joint operating agreements, easement agreements, royalty disputes, title disputes, and personal injury matters involving oil and gas properties.

Ms. Wright has successfully represented numerous oil and gas companies, financial institutions, and other commercial interests in the appellate arena. She handles appeals state-wide, but routinely practices before the Twelfth Court of Appeals, in Tyler, Texas.

Ms. Wright is a 1995 graduate of Baylor University School of Law where she was a member of the Order of Barristers and the Managing Editor of the Baylor Law Review.  She also worked for Professors Gerald Powell and Louis Muldrow as the Practice Court Assistant.  Following graduation, Ms. Wright worked for the Seventh Court of Appeals in Amarillo as a briefing attorney and staff attorney.  She is originally from Texarkana, Texas, and returned to East Texas in August of 2003 to be near family.  She has one son, Jack, and soon-to-be daughter-in-law Alejandra.
