Associate Christine Tamer graduated from the University of Texas School of Law with highest honors in 2011. Given her choice among the best law firms in the country, Ms. Tamer decided to join Baron & Budd following a summer clerkship with the firm. “That summer I saw that Baron & Budd wasn’t only doing outstanding legal work, I saw that they were doing outstanding legal work that made a huge difference in the lives of individual people,” Christine said. “I wanted to be a part of that. I wanted to give a voice to those who are not always heard.”

Since joining Baron & Budd, Ms. Tamer has done just that. Christine has helped represent numerous clients in Courts of Appeal and trial courts across the country. She recently represented a family in a jury trial resulting in a significant verdict that was included in the National Law Journal Top 100 Verdicts for 2012 (ALM Media). Additionally, Ms. Tamer successfully helped defend the verdict after it went up on appeal in California. Christine has also helped author two successful Motions for Rehearing in front of the Texas Supreme Court.

Ms. Tamer concentrates on law and motion practice, as well as appellate work. Her passion for legal writing has led her to serve as an Adjunct Professor teaching Legal Writing at University of North Texas School of Law.

Christine was honored by the Texas Supreme Court for achieving one of the top three scores on the Texas Bar Exam. She graduated with a 4.04 GPA and highest honors from the University of Texas School of Law, where she was a Chancellor, Order of the Coif, and an Associate Editor of the Texas Law Review.
