Trisha A. Barita

Managing Attorney

Trisha is the managing attorney for the Barita Law Group, PLLC and has been practicing as a licensed Texas attorney for 14 ½ years in the areas of business and employment law all over the State of Texas with offices in Downtown Houston and League City. She strives to bring a creative and collaborative approach to her Clients that create a lasting relationship.   She has represented anywhere from small local businesses to large national corporations in employment matters with the Texas Workforce Commission, Equal Employment Opportunity, OFCCP or Department of Labor in consulting matters, investigations related to employees, administrative matters and litigation.  During this process, Trisha also develops a consistent approach for her clients on how to handle human resource (HR) issues such as hiring, discipline, termination, and effective employee evaluations. Throughout the consultation and representation process, she has advised clients on employment policies and procedure for employee handbooks for her corporate and business clients.

She also handles her business and corporate clients needs regarding contract negotiations with other businesses and governmental entities. She assists clients with drafting many contract terms including tailoring the contract to protect from vicarious liability of independent contractors and employees, covenants not to compete, and fair business dealings. She also drafts and interprets employment agreements that limit her business and corporate clients’ liability in areas of non-disclosure, covenants not to compete, or a contract breach.

She was the National Association of Women Business Owner (NAWBO)– Houston Chapter’s President 2015-16 and selected as NAWBO’s Women of Excellence in 2016.  She has also been chosen as a Rising Star for Super Lawyers in 2018 and 2019  that recognizes no more than 2.5 percent of attorneys in the State of Texas 

She regularly provides speeches and training on employment law or business law matters to corporate management, trade organizations, business employer groups and Chambers of Commerce in the Houston and surrounding areas. 

What Business Owners and Corporate Leaders Are Saying

 

“I have worked together with Trisha on numerous cases over the years and she has proven herself as a smart, dedicated and ethical attorney. I highly recommend her.”

— John Kirkland Sammons, Attorney (Posted on Avvo)

“I have worked with Trisha on several non-profit boards and her work has always been excellent. Very forth coming with legal standards and advise. She has kept the organizations on the right legal path and her counsel has been first rate. On my present board we hired her 2 weeks before we had some severe issues confront the organization. She gave great legal advise and helped the organization to weather the storm. We couldn't have done it without her.”

— Rick Wade, President of Non-Profit Board (Posted on Avvo)
