Biography

Shari Goldsberry: Shari Goldsberry has dedicated her career to providing effective legal counsel to clients at a reasonable cost. Her practice areas include civil litigation, appellate practice and mediation services. She believes in treating clients as individuals with respect for both their legal issues and their pocketbook. Ms. Goldsberry works aggressively for fair resolutions while at the same time attempts to limit the prohibitively high cost of litigation.

Ms. Goldsberry was born and raised in Houston, Texas where her family has run a small business for over 40 years. While managing that business, she earned an undergraduate degree from the University of Houston. After college, she earned a law degree from South Texas College of Law. In law school, Ms. Goldsberry was part of the management team that earned the school’s Trial Advocacy Program its first ever #1 ranking in U.S. News and World Report. In addition to her excellent skills as a manager and advocate, Ms. Goldsberry served as editor for two publications, trained as a mediator and provided pro bono legal services to the poor. As a result of her distinguished work in Law School, Ms. Goldsberry was named to Who's Who Among Law Students in her senior year.

Ms. Goldsberry clerked for a former appellate court chief justice at the prestigious downtown firm of Burrow & Parrott, LLP where she obtained valuable insight into complex areas of appellate advocacy. After law school, Ms. Goldsberry opened her own firm because she believes her talents are best utilized by serving clients directly instead of at a large law firm of anonymous attorneys whose purpose, oftentimes, is to bill the client as much as possible and speak to them as little as possible.
