Lisa Hull was born at Columbus AFB in Jackson, Mississippi, and grew up in a military family across the United States. She received a B.A. in Economics and Public Policy from Brigham Young University in 1989.
In 1992, she earned a J.D., cum laude, from Texas Tech School of Law where she was associate editor of the Texas Tech Law Review and recipient of the Beckman Dunlap Woody Award for her contributions to the Law Review, and of the American Jurisprudence Awards in Criminal Procedure and Wills and Trusts.
She is admitted to practice in Texas, Oklahoma, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit and the District of Columbia, and the U.S. District Courts for the Northern, Eastern, and Western Districts of Texas.
LITIGATOR, COUNSELOR, AND MEDIATOR
After starting her career as a law clerk with Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, Ms. Hull decided it was time to advocate in the courtroom and apply what she had learned while at the appellate court so she joined Richard Harrison’s practice in 1995.
In addition to defending thousands of personal-injury clients over the past twenty years, Ms. Hull’s practice focuses on advising and counseling insurance companies and representing those carriers in insurance coverage disputes, fraud investigations, and first-party property and UM/UIM claims.
Ms. Hull also defends employers, directly and through insurance companies, in connection with discrimination, harassment, and wrongful discharge claims before administrative agencies and in federal and state court. And not surprisingly, she is the firm’s resident appellate lawyer who handles the appeals from the firm’s jury verdicts.
Several years ago, Ms. Hull completed the 40-hour basic training course for certification as a mediator and has been mediating personal-injury and employment cases for countless colleagues from both sides of the bar. Ms. Hull’s pro bono work involves child advocacy and adoption-related legal services for disadvantaged Texans.
Ms. Hull lives in McKinney and enjoys mountain biking, tennis, basketball and movies with her two young sons.
