Successful resolution of disputes requires persistence, nimbleness, constant review of the details, and, most importantly, client communication.

Mindy Riseden focuses her practice on commercial litigation, with particular emphasis on the trial level.

In fifteen years of practicing law, Mindy has provided counsel to individuals, local businesses, national corporations, and multinational organizations in disputes involving partnerships, insurance brokerage, employment, trustee/fiduciary, real estate, contract, eminent domain, and personal injury. Regardless of the nature of the dispute, Mindy enjoys working with people, and she finds that during the litigation process the best method to help the client reach its goals consists of working diligently and persistently while also maintaining flexibility as issues and disputes are always evolving. 

Mindy believes balance is important to any activity.  Prior to graduating law school, Mindy studied and lived abroad in Mexico, Spain, Chile, and Hong Kong. While in law school, Mindy served as a Senior Articles Editor for the SMU Dedman School of Law’s Computer Law Review & Technology Journal.  She was also elected as a Barrister and received the Southern Methodist University’s McGuire Fellowship Award for Ethics & Public Responsibility (2001). Mindy is conversational in Spanish and enjoys meeting and working with people from a variety of backgrounds and cultures. When not consumed with areas of commercial litigation, Mindy enjoys working with pro bono clients, especially children needing a voice and guidance through the legal system.
