Taryn Ourso

Taryn Ourso joined the Dallas office of Baron & Budd in 2021 as a member of the firm’s asbestos litigation group. She devotes her practice to representing individuals who have suffered irreparable harm as a result of asbestos exposure, many of whom were exposed to asbestos as they faithfully worked to make an honest living to support their families. Prior to joining Baron & Budd, Ms. Ourso worked for a national plaintiffs’ firm representing whistleblowers and individuals in personal injury cases. Before becoming an attorney, she taught physics and chemistry to high school students in Mesquite, Texas, and Plano, Texas.

Ms. Ourso grew up in the small town of Addis, Louisiana, where she learned the importance of family, community, and hard work. Her small town roots motivate her to work tirelessly on behalf of everyday people who were gravely injured from asbestos exposure as they, too, went about their lives in service of family, community, and hard work. She returns home to Addis as often as she can to stay grounded in those values. “We are proud to offer our clients the top-notch representation they deserve as they suffer from asbestos-caused diseases that were completely preventable. Negligent companies exposed them to asbestos while they were simply going about their everyday lives. Now, because of that exposure, they are unable to enjoy everyday life with family and friends or to provide for them as they had always intended.”

When she is not fighting for justice on behalf of clients, Ms. Ourso enjoys spending time with family and her beloved Labrador retriever, Cayman. She also enjoys making a pot of gumbo or jambalaya while watching LSU or the Saints play.
