Attorney Profile

An attorney and partner at Bollier Ciccone LLP, Rekha Roarty litigates critical commercial and real estate cases in Austin, Texas. She is licensed to practice law in Texas since 2014 and has also appeared before the United States District Courts for the Western and Northern Districts of Texas. 

Ms. Roarty is aware that a legal issue can push business plans off track and divert its focus. With good knowledge of the complexities involved in real estate and construction law, she covers the full gamut of issues faced by clients, including ones developed over mechanics and construction liens, breached contracts, defective designs and products, contract disputes, quiet title actions, commercial and residential lease disputes, land use, zoning, permit issues and other environmental issues.

Equally confident in the courtroom and at the negotiation table, Ms. Roarty finds ways to eliminate disputes or avoid litigation altogether by representing her clients in arbitrations, mediations and settlement negotiations. However, she knows that not all disputes are best resolved out of court and remains prepared to stand by her clients’ sides through every step of litigation. 

After completing her Bachelor of Arts in psychology at Baylor University in 2010, Ms. Roarty attended Baylor University School of Law and obtained a doctorate in law in 2014. She worked as an associate attorney at two other reputable Texas law firms before joining Bollier Ciccone LLP. 

Ms. Roarty regularly publishes articles and presents on several real estate and construction law topics at conferences and continuing legal education seminars across Texas. She holds active memberships in the Austin Young Lawyers Association, the Mother Attorneys Mentoring Association, the Austin Bar Association – Construction Section, the Travis County Women Lawyers’ Association and the State Bar of Texas – Child Abuse and Neglect Committee.

Ms. Roarty gives back to her community through her volunteer work and devotes her time to organizations such as The Junior League of Austin, the Austin Baylor Lawyer Network – Steering Committee and the Baylor Women's Network of Austin.
