Attorney Profile

Jessica Thorne divides her unique practice between business litigation and family law. Her business clients include AT&T, the MacArthur Foundation, and Northrop Grumman, and she has experience handling breach of contract, fraud, patent infringement, dissolution of entities, government contracts, and various tort claims. In her family law work, she represents clients in divorce, asset evaluation and division, collaborative law, and child custody issues.

Her two practice areas overlap and complement each other in sometimes surprising ways. Thorne is able to provide her family law clients with a business perspective they appreciate and respect, and she gives her corporate clients a level of personal understanding about the real-world consequences of litigation on a company and its employees — an ability few business lawyers possess. In addition, because of her family law work, Thorne has far more courtroom time before judges and juries than many of her adversaries in business cases.

Before co-founding Taber Estes Thorne & Carr, Thorne was a partner in the Trial section of Dallas’ Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP.
