Office Administrator and Bookkeeper


At Bridge City Law, we believe the work we do is not just a job. How we care for our clients, support our teammates, be of service in our community, and contribute to caring for our environment are as important as the legal work we do for our clients.

To ensure we meet and maintain the highest standards of social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability, every three years, we voluntarily participate in a rigorous assessment and certification process, administered and verified by the global non-profit B Lap to receive our B Corp Certification.

Bridge City Law is a different kind of personal injury law firm. We are a team of legal professionals who share the same values and beliefs about how people deserve to be treated and have built our success on serving and being of service to our clients.

We passionately seek justice for our clients and help them navigate a complex legal system by providing expertise and guidance, and taking care of their legal needs, so they can focus on what’s most important — recovering from their injuries, caring for their families, and managing their work and other responsibilities.

One of our core values at Bridge City Law is responsiveness and we aim for excellence in our interactions and communications with both our clients and team members. Efficient, well-organized, and clearly communicated processes, procedures, and systems are the foundation for our exceptional service approach and key to our success.
