Margaret Mead is a board-certified labor and employment attorney, with over two decades of experience. As a fierce litigator, she has represented clients in Texas State and federal courts and before state and federal agencies (EEOC, TWC, Department of Labor). As a counselor, Ms. Mead provides prompt, no-nonsense wisdom to clients on a wide range of labor and employment issues. She provides employment advice and litigation services to individuals and commercial ventures of all kinds, including medical practices, manufacturers, grocers, restaurants, and retailers.

I have greatly appreciated Margaret’s commitment to advocate for myself and my company and her integrity to do the right thing for me. I believe that she has given me the best possible advice for resolving situations or preventing them from happening. Margaret is my go to HR attorney.

I have an actual cat, but I love cats so much that I actually decorate with them.  Truly, I love animals of all kinds.  There is an incomparable, simple pleasure in spending time with animals.

I learned to scuba dive in 2001, and it has been a passion of mine ever since.  Nothing is more interesting that a coral reef and its wildlife, and I especially love the weightless feeling while diving.

I am a big fan of my beloved Jayhawks and their basketball team.  It is a form of nostalgia for my alma mater.
