A real estate and land use partner at Jackson Walker and a licensed real estate broker, Pam has been at the forefront of the real estate industry for over 20 years. Throughout her career, whether in a position of service or as a legal counselor, Pam has been an agent of change, setting a path for both her community and her clients to pursue new endeavors.

As an example of her contribution to her profession and the state of Texas, Pam served as President of the Texas Association of Defense Counsel (TADC), one of the two largest state organizations of civil litigation attorneys in the United States. As the 2018-2019 president, she successfully led the TADC through the passage of legislation during the 86th Legislative Session, and her more than 50-member Board of Directors worked diligently to oversee the TADC’s efforts to promote fairness in the judicial system and the right to jury trial for all citizens. Prior serving as president, Pam was a member of the TADC Board for 20 years.

On a more local level, Pam was elected by the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors to serve as its 2019 General Counsel and a member of the board’s Executive Committee. As General Counsel, she provided guidance to the board and its committees in support of the Austin Chamber’s mission to encourage a prosperous regional economy in Central Texas.

Pam also served as past chair of the Real Estate Council of Austin (RECA) and is currently on the Board of Directors. Through her involvement in RECA, she mentors other women and educates them about the community. She also chaired the Central Texas Community Association of Realtors (CTCAR). In recognition of her experience in the real estate industry, she was invited to serve on the judging committee for Austin Business Journal’s 2018 Commercial Real Estate Awards, which honors individuals in commercial real estate who take risks to advance, preserve, or positively change the Austin community.

Within the local community, Pam volunteers with various nonprofits, including The Helping Hand Home for Children. Through her service, she meets with the children once a month to teach art and has for decades.  Pam serves as Vice Chair of the Greater Austin Crime Commission, which was formed in order to help the Austin Police Department reduce crime. The commission enables community members such as Pam to support public safety concerns.

Previously, Pam assisted as an adjunct professor at the University of Texas Law School, where she taught a course on negotiations. She has also served on the Legal Studies Program Advisory Board for the Texas State University Political Science Department since 1998.

Pam has been recognized by The Best Lawyers in America in the areas of Real Estate Law (2020-2022) and Land Use and Zoning Law (2021-2022). She also made Austin Monthly’s list of “Austin’s Top Attorneys” in 2021 in the Land Use Environment category. For recognition in the list, Austin attorneys must be nominated by their peers on the basis that they offer experienced counsel in 1 of 43 categories.

Jackson Walker proudly congratulates Pam on her outstanding achievements as a member of the legal profession and the greater Austin community. To explore the impact Jackson Walker attorneys like Pam are making on the community, visit our Community and Diversity & Inclusion pages.
