Tesha L. Williams joined the Pharmaceutical Litigation Group at Baron & Budd’s Dallas office in 2020. She hopes to help change the lives of those who have been wronged by pharmaceutical companies by seeking fair compensation for their suffering.
Ms. Williams grew up in Shepherd, Texas, a small country town with a population of fewer than 2,500 people. This close-knit upbringing formed her deep desire to help people, especially those who cannot help themselves. Her five years as a medical malpractice paralegal solidified Ms. Williams’ aspiration to attend law school, where she knew a solid legal education would enable her to better assist those harmed by dangerous drugs and devices.
While attending the University of North Texas at Dallas College of Law, Ms. Williams interned for the Honorable Chief Justice Barbara M. G. Lynn in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas and at the City of Irving Attorney’s Office. Ms. Williams was a dedicated leader who held several officer positions in student organizations, including Justice for the Judicial Board and Chair of the A&M/UNT Dallas College of Law Alternative Dispute Resolution competition. She also served on the Board of Advocates. Ms. Williams is a recipient of the Dallas Bar Foundation’s Collins Clerkship opportunity and received the Judge Sarah T. Hughes Award at UNT Dallas College of Law. Ms. Williams also practiced at UNT’s Community Lawyering Clinic, helping low-income clients with various legal issues. She truly has a “plaintiff’s heart”, and is always seeking an opportunity to correct injustice.
At Baron & Budd, Ms. Williams continues her fight to help our clients obtain just compensation for injuries they’ve suffered at the hands of pharmaceutical corporations. She is proud to be a member of a firm that shares her principles of integrity, honesty, professionalism and civility. In her spare time, Ms. Williams enjoys the company of her family and friends and traveling to new destinations.
