Brittney was part of the Powers Taylor team as a paralegal in our securities litigation section from 2014 through 2016. Brittney came back to the firm as a JD Candidate in January 2019 as she nears the completion of her law degree at UNT Dallas College of Law. Brittney is working in our Business and Commercial Litigation section.

Brittney was born and raised in the small town of Ferris, Texas. Brittney has been a paralegal since 2002 and has experience in commercial law, business litigation, securities litigation, employment law, and personal injury. After ten years as a paralegal, Brittney decided it was time to take steps toward the law degree she had always strived for. Brittney attended UT Dallas, where she received her undergraduate degree in Sociology and Psychology. After completion of her undergraduate degree, she started law school at UNT Dallas College of Law in 2016. Brittney has continued working as a paralegal while she attends law school in the evenings. In law school, Brittney spent a great deal of time competing in, judging at, and coordinating mock trial and moot court events. She was invited to join the Board of Advocates at UNT Dallas College of Law her 1L year and has served on its executive board for the last two years. Brittney has also served as a legal writing teaching fellow.
