January 2014’s One to Watch is Barbara Pelaez. And what a great way to start the year!
Barbara is an associate at Adkerson, Hauder & Bezney, P.C. and a 2010 Graduate of Baylor Law School. She practices in the area of Personal Injury Defense and loves litigating cases. She also loves the sense of purpose being a lawyer gives her. Easy to understand, given that her great grandfather sat on the equivalent of the Supreme Court in Cuba.
She was a member of the 2012 DAYL Leadership Class Steering Committee and was instrumental in organizing and presenting “Grow South Jams” – a charity concert held at The Kessler Theater in Oak Cliff. It benefitted Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings’ GrowSouth Initiative and raised over $8,000.
Barbara is also active in the DAYL Solo & Small Firm Committee and Trivia Committee where she helped organize the DAYL “Mock” Holiday Party, Trivia Bowl, and Pub Trivia.
She currently lives in Deep Ellum with her fiancé and their two dogs Chapina and Heifer Moo. She is a fan of both Hemmingway and South Park and is a movie junkie.
Because of her dedication to her profession, her friends, and the DAYL, Barbara Pelaez is One to Watch.
