Attorney Profile

Christy Lynn Hester began her legal career as a paralegal for Ted B. Lyon & Associates and other trial attorneys in Mesquite, Texas. After 20 years in the paralegal field, she graduated from law school in 2015 and became admitted to the Texas Bar. She then returned to Ted B. Lyon & Associates to work as an attorney.

Mrs. Hester's practice areas span a wide range of personal injury and wrongful death cases in Texas. These include work injuries, premises liability, medical malpractice, dog bites and motor vehicle accidents. She only handles plaintiff cases, so her clients can rest assured that their opponents are unlikely to be former clients.

Since graduating from Texas A&M University School of Law, Mrs. Hester has worked hard to increase the number of courts she has been admitted to. In addition to the Texas Bar, she has also gained admittance to the U.S. District Court Eastern District of Texas, the U.S. District Court Northern District of Texas and the United States Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit.

Outside of the courtroom, Mrs. Hester has served as the pro bono or community service chairperson for the medical malpractice or personal injury section of the Dallas Area Paralegal Association. She continues to serve as a resource to aspiring paralegals and is a sought-after speaker for student bodies in this field.
