Lasca Arnold

A Texas A&M Construction Science graduate who started out as a field engineer on a commercial construction project who became business owner with over 20 years experience in manufacturing and construction.  I then chose to fulfill my dream of a legal education.   My life experiences as a woman, employee for a large company, and small business owner make me uniquely qualified to handle a wide variety of legal issues with compassion and true understanding.

I've been a business owner and manager for over 20 years and I've found that this experience makes me uniquely qualified to understand my clients' needs.  I'm from the small town of Pawnee in South Texas where a handshake is more iron clad than any contract, but as times and ways have changed, I'm prepared to navigate the changes with the understanding and care of the old ways.  I'm  here to help you succeed and that's something I don't take lightly.

At the Law Office of Lasca A. Arnold, I am here to listen to your concerns and help you with your legal needs in any way I can.
