Character Matters

Character Matters® is our foundational maxim; our core values its roots.

We hire, make decisions, represent clients, interact in conflict, and strive to lead our lives devoted to these principles.

The Texas Lawyer’s Creed calls for lawyers to adhere to “the highest levels of professionalism” in our practices. We agree.  We strive to act with high-integrity—honesty, ethics, and strong moral foundation—in every relationship and seize opportunities to celebrate high-integrity leadership in our team.

We believe that great leaders rise through service, and the legacy of a successful leader is marked by building up and protecting others.

I am a lifelong sports fan, but no game will ever top this one – Game 3 of the 2001 World Series when, just weeks after 9/11, President Bush went to the mound in a bullet-proof vest, gave the thumbs-up sign to the nation, and threw a perfect strike. Most of the crowd was crying or roaring. I was in the upper deck right behind home plate doing both. A truly iconic moment for the sports world and our country.

I got this magnet when I did my first (and last) marathon. It reminds me daily to have the courage to challenge myself to get out of my comfort zone and try something new, even if it’s just once.

From the magic of Harry Potter, the romance by Nicholas Sparks, and the thrill of John Grisham books, my love for reading is vast. I’ve loved to read for as long as I can remember and many of my most content moments involve getting lost in a good book.

I inherited a love for cooking and baking from my sweet Mama. Some of my best dishes have been thrown together with little thought and limited ingredients and are my most requested dishes. I have so many fond memories with my Mama in her kitchen, and I am now I am passing that “ladle” to my own daughters.

Making the perfect cup of coffee takes precision, patience and passion, but is always worth the effort. You can often find me trying new roasteries and flavor notes.

My son bought this geode for me with money I gave him to buy himself something on a field trip in 2nd grade.  It reminds me of the Gift of the Magi and the gifts of love and giving.

Melissa Resa

Of all the diplomas and degrees I’ve earned, the most rewarding was from high school. The International Baccalaureate curriculum is by far one of the most difficult and life changing programs I’ve ever endured, paving the way for foundations of self-discipline and organization as well as a lifelong passion for learning.

Baylor University will always hold a special place in my heart and life. Baylor taught me important life lessons and brought me many lifelong friendships. Cheering for Baylor is a family tradition that I love sharing with those I love the most. Sic Em Bears!

Through exercising I have learned the importance of discipline and consistency. It’s also the best way to start or finish your day.

I have had a deep love for the ocean since I was little. My family would visit Myrtle Beach, SC and I would spend all day in the water. I still do when we go. I feel God’s peace most when I’m floating in the ocean.

Caroline Cotton

From home projects to crafting, I have a pure love of working with my hands to create something fun and beautiful. Recently, I’ve been making painted signs for home décor.

Kimberley O’Rourke

Prior to entering the legal profession, I worked in my family’s farming business, growing corn, soybeans, and wheat. Although my time on a tractor is considerably less now, I still carry the business acumen and grit born out of entrepreneurship.
