Attorney Valerie Cavitt is a born-and-bred Texas attorney. She received her BA in Mass Communication from Texas State before earning her law degree from Appalachian Law School in Virginia. The Texas Bar admitted attorney Cavitt to practice law in 2014. Clients note Valerie’s hard work, professionalism, and honesty as her particularly noticeable traits. They also cite her empathy and communication as her strong suits.

Valerie focuses on practicing two areas of law: criminal defense and personal injury. As a defense attorney, she recognizes that sometimes, clients make mistakes. Instead of judging a client for their past, she focuses on helping them establish a better future by beating their charges. She also assists clients who were injured because of someone else’s actions. Her skill as a personal injury attorney has helped clients recoup financial compensation related to their injuries.
