Julia Handt

Julia Handt is an attorney in the Opioid Litigation Group at the Dallas offices of Baron & Budd. She works with the firm’s opioid team to make a difference in the fight against the opioid crisis.

Ms. Handt earned undergraduate degrees in Psychology and Criminology from the University of Texas at Dallas in Richardson, Texas, before deciding to attend law school at Texas Tech University School of Law in Lubbock. While in law school, she served as a judicial intern for the Honorable Judge Mark Rusch of the 401st District Court in Collin County, Texas. The experience left her with a clearer understanding of all areas of law and helped clarify for her the type of law she would ultimately choose to practice.

Ms. Handt went on to represent indigent clients at the Texas Tech Family Law and Housing Clinic, where she was able to expand her legal expertise even more. As a result of her strong commitment to helping the legal community, Ms. Handt was recognized with the Pro-Bono Honor Roll Award upon graduation from Texas Tech in May 2018.

Following receipt of her Juris Doctor, Ms. Handt returned to her hometown of Wylie, Texas, where she sought to join a law firm whose principles of helping people aligned with her own. She joined Baron & Budd in 2019, which she considers an ideal fit.
