Six years have passed since I left the big firm to establish my own practice. Over that time, we have added a full-time assistant, a part-time administrator, a second lawyer (Brandy Wingate), and a second office in the Rio Grande Valley. Today, I am happy to announce that Maitreya Tomlinson (pictured) has joined Smith Law Group, P.C. as an associate here in Austin.
Before becoming a lawyer, Maitreya was a successful banker at JPMorgan Chase and a mortgage banker at various financial institutions. During his previous career, he held multiple financial licenses, including an insurance license.
While attending law school at SMU, Maitreya interned for former Chief Judge A. Joe Fish of the Northern District of Texas and Justice Elizabeth Lang-Miers of the Fifth Court of Appeals. He was also part of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s summer honors program. Upon completing his J.D., Maitreya served as a law clerk to Texas Supreme Court Justice David Medina.
Maitreya has successfully briefed and argued appeals in various Texas appellate courts and has briefed and successfully opposed mandamus at the Texas Supreme Court. He also handles a wide variety of matters for trial counsel, including writing and arguing dispositive motions. His background and skills as a researcher, writer, and advocate fit nicely with the firm’s practice. Welcome, Maitreya!
