Tina's statewide practice involves claims arising under general liability, professional, and employer’s liability/worker’s compensation policies of insurance. Additionally, Tina's litigation experience includes coverage disputes arising out of environmental, toxic tort, and long-latency disease exposure. A large measure of Tina's environmental litigation practice arises out of underground storage tanks, piping, gasoline stations, and the transport of fuel and chemicals under automobile liability policies with MCS-90 endorsements. Tina also has extensive experience litigating construction defect coverage claims, bad faith claims, public sector liability claims, and first-party coverage disputes.

Tina regularly counsels clients before litigation regarding the applicability of coverage exclusions, analyzes choice-of-law, drafts reservation-of-rights letters, and negotiates cost-share agreements and favorable settlement resolutions.

In addition, approximately 20% of Tina’s practice is devoted to appellate work, and she has successfully argued and briefed insurance-related and procedural issues before the United States Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. Tina became a shareholder in the firm in 2012.
