Prior to joining Baron & Budd, Chris Mansour worked for almost ten years at a Dallas non-profit representing immigrants who had been victims of violence. These included survivors of domestic violence, violent crime and child abuse, as well as those who had suffered human rights abuses in their home countries.
Her accomplishments included numerous successful trials and appeals that led to hundreds of immigrants obtaining legal status in the United States. Before that, she spent seven years at major law firms in Wisconsin and Ohio practicing commercial civil litigation.
During this time she cultivated her appellate and trial advocacy skills, obtaining significant experience authoring appellate briefs on a variety of topics and handling all aspects of litigation including drafting pleadings, conducting discovery, motion practice and preparing for trial.
Now Ms. Mansour has turned her attention to the national opioid crisis and is working with Baron & Budd’s Pharmaceutical Litigation Group to help cities, counties and states hold the drug industry accountable for its malfeasance. She devotes her time to researching complex legal issues, writing briefs and developing litigation strategies.
Chris Mansour grew up in Rochester, Minnesota. She received her Bachelor of Arts in American Studies from the University of Notre Dame. After working as a journalist, she entered law school with the goal of using her skills to give a voice to those in need and achieve positive change in national policies that impact a wide range of people, especially those lacking economic or political power. Ms. Mansour graduated from the University of Michigan in 1998 after serving on the Law Review and representing neglected children in the Child Advocacy Clinic.
In her free time Ms. Mansour enjoys spending time with her family, running, cooking and traveling. She loves returning to the beautiful lakes of Minnesota every summer where she can water-ski and escape the Texas heat.
