Biography

Rasha divides her practice between labor and employment litigation and compliance and personal injury and premises liability defense. Rasha began her career at an employee-side labor and employment firm, where she represented plaintiffs in cases involving federal and state discrimination and retaliation, the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Texas Workforce Commission, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Occupational Health and Safety Administration, the National Labor Relations Act, breach of contract, non-competition agreements, and other statutes and regulatory bodies. Rasha’s background as an employee-side attorney has been an advantageous experience, which she draws on in counseling her clients and during litigation.

Alongside her litigation work, Rasha also leads clients through severance negotiations, early case resolution, as well as internal compliance and training programs. Rasha has presented on the topics of sexual harassment and implicit bias to various associations and human resources organizations, as well as provided sexual harassment training to employers and their employees.

Rasha takes pride in her relationship with her clients. She understands that an effective defense strategy is found in the details. Whether it be aggressively representing her clients in litigation, or early case resolution, Rasha partners with her clients to determine the best way to meet their needs. Rasha’s unique background, client centric approach, and zealous advocacy, has earned her many recognitions, including the Avvo client choice award, the Texas Rising Star award in both 2020 and 2021, and the Top 40 under 40 National Trial Lawyer award in both 2021 and 2022. Additionally, Voyage Dallas Magazine featured Rasha in its “Most inspiring stories in Dallas,” article, and Thompson Reuters featured Rasha on the cover of its 2022 Super Lawyers magazine.
