Recently board-certified employment attorney Camille Avant is adding another accolade to her trophy case this month: She has been recognized on the 2020 list of Super Lawyers Rising Stars published by Thomson Reuters.
“We’re incredibly proud of Camille, and this is very much deserved,” said Clouse Brown name partner Alyson Brown. “It’s been a privilege to see her grow as an attorney, and we know this is just the start of what she’s capable of.”
Rising Stars selects no more than 2.5 percent of attorneys in the state for recognition on the annual list. To be eligible, a candidate must be either 40 years old or younger, or in practice for 10 years or less.
Ms. Avant’s practice includes defending clients before state and federal courts and administrative agencies, including the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the U.S. Department of Labor, and the Texas Workforce Commission. She also counsels employers and executives in all aspects of employment law, including discrimination, wrongful termination, breach of employment contracts, trade secrets, covenants not to compete, and wage and hour cases.
Ms. Avant graduated cum laude from University of Louisiana in 2010, where she earned a B.A. in Political Science. In 2013, she received her J.D. and graduated cum laude from Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law. During law school, Ms. Avant was a judicial intern for Chief Justice Ulysses Gene Thibodeaux of the U.S. 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals.
