The National Diversity Council Names Associate Alejandra C. Salinas One of Houston’s Top Women in Law in for 2017

November 2017

The National Diversity Council has named Houston Associate, Alejandra C. Salinas, among Houston’s 50 “Top Women in Law” in their compilation of industry leaders.  This Council describes the honorees as, “some of the most extraordinary legal professionals in the Houston area; a distinguished group of women dedicated to continuous success in their workplaces and communities.” 

Honorees were selected based on criteria such as high degree of peer recognition for leadership and professional expertise, noteworthy commitment to fairness, equity and justice in client representation, and a commitment to helping others succeed.

This caps off an extraordinary first year at Susman Godfrey for Salinas who, in February, was part of a three person trial team to win a $2.3 million jury verdict for Internet Marketing Company, WickFire, in WickFire LLC v. TriMax Media LLC et al.  The jury awarded the full requested amount in damages, while rejecting a $22 million counterclaim filed against WickFire. 

Prior to her time at the firm, Salinas addressed 20,000 delegates on the final night of the Democratic National Convention in a nationally televised speech in 2012. Salinas currently serves on the U.S. Department of State’s Speaker Program where she speaks to U.S. embassies around the world about the Latino community and national political parties.
