Attorney Margret Lecocke considers herself lucky to have found a place with Williams Hart, where her inquisitive nature is not only an advantage to her profession but a necessary qualification. Her skillful articulation in public speaking is a valuable resource to the legal team when presenting information to clients and staff alike.
An intellectual with a fondness for literature, Margret graduated from Columbia University in New York with a BA in English. “I have always loved to read. Books, magazines, newspapers, menus; I will read anything. English by far was my favorite subject in high school.” It was this inclination to analyze literary text that led her to the discovery that practicing law was the perfect path for her.
Margret enjoys the challenge of practicing law. “I am lucky enough to exercise my brain every day. My cases span a wide range of subjects, from pharmaceuticals to labor disputes to motor vehicle accidents. I am constantly learning the mechanics of something new.”
“Without a doubt, the fact that I actually get to guide people through life-altering problems is the real reward at the end of each day. This firm is dedicated to protecting our clients’ rights, and because we all share a common goal, we work WITH each other and not against each other. When you have that harmony, everyone benefits, most importantly, our clients.”
When she isn’t reading or working, Margret is often baking or practicing pilates. “I’ll do anything active. I just like to stay in motion when I’m not at work.” Margret’s charitable endeavors include National Public Radio (NPR), the Houston Ballet and the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
