Britta Stanton joined LPHS as a partner in 2022. An experienced trial lawyer with an outstanding track record, Britta has tried many cases in state and federal courts across the country. Because of her reputation as a strong trial-ready lawyer, her opposition knows she is not afraid to go to trial, meaning her clients have an edge in settlement negotiations. Her clients call her their “go-to lawyer” for solving problems in business.
On top of her extensive trial experience, Britta is also a skillful visual communicator. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Communications from the University of Texas and spent time honing her trial lawyer skills serving as a trial consultant, assisting lawyers at AmLaw firms with trial presentation and jury selection.
Britta believes courtroom success is achieved when an attorney takes the time to listen and master the facts of each case. Because of this, her clients and their employees trust her, allowing her to learn the "story" of each case. She pieces this story together through the discovery process and uses that narrative to connect with the jury.
Britta is an active member of First United Methodist Church in downtown Dallas. She has served in the Patrick E. Higginbotham American Inn of Court and as chair for the Advisory Committee for the Northern District of Texas courts. She is married and has four children.
