My name is Jamie Richards Whitney. I graduated from the University of Texas School of Law in 2006 as a member of the Order of the Coif. While in law school, I was an editor on the Law Review and President of Texas Law Fellowships, UT Law’s student-led pro bono program.
I started my legal career clerking for United States District Judge Sam Sparks, in the Western District of Texas. Following this clerkship, I joined Fulbright & Jaworski, L.L.P. (now Norton Rose Fulbright), an international law firm recognized for its litigation teams. At Fulbright, I provided legal counsel and representation to businesses in a variety of industries all over the world. I stayed with Fulbright until 2015, when I returned to the Western District of Texas to clerk for United States Magistrate Judge Mark Lane.
In 2016, I seized the opportunity to create Richards Whitney, P.C. I work with growing businesses to plan for the future, resolve disputes, and support expansion.
I am admitted to practice in the state of Texas, the federal district courts of the Western District of Texas, the Fifth Circuit, and the Supreme Court of the United States. I have served on the State Bar of Texas’ Court Rules Committee since 2009, which is exactly as technical and dorky as it sounds. I love it! Other things I do for fun include providing volunteer legal services to political asylum seekers through Casa Marianella and helping victims of domestic violence obtain low-cost divorce decrees through Volunteer Legal Services. When I’m not picking my legal battles, I love to ride horses, read zombie novels, and hang out with my amazing kids.
