Alma Tavares

Attorney

“An injured person going up against a million dollar insurance company alone is not a fair fight. I know what it feels like to be caused injury by others and it motivates me to help those who are hurting.

I will forever be grateful that I chose the right firm for my Roundup case. From the first phone call until the verdict, I have always felt so comfortable and respected by everyone I worked with from the firm. I was represented by people who truly care about their clients and their needs and feelings. I wish there was an option to give them 1000 stars on here! They are now much more than my attorneys... I am blessed to call them my friends!

Biography

Alma (Reyes) Tavares is a personal injury trial attorney. She represents individuals and families that are hurt by the negligent acts of others, including large companies. Some of the types of cases she handles involve commercial motor vehicle crashes, defective products, dangerous premises, and workplace injuries.

“I am drawn to helping people that need it most. I have a lot of compassion for people who are hurting. I really want to help them.”

She began her legal career as a personal injury paralegal in 1998. While working as a paralegal for ten years, she earned a bachelor’s degree in Political Science from the University of St. Thomas, (Summa Cum Laude), a master’s degree in Humanities from the University of Houston-Clear Lake (Top Honors), and a juris doctorate from the Thurgood Marshall School of Law (Summa Cum Laude). In law school she competed and placed in arbitration, oral argument, and moot court competitions.

She was the president of the Hispanic Law Students Association and publicist of the Board of Advocates. She was awarded the American Jurisprudence award for achieving the highest grade and rank in her class in several subjects. She also interned for Judge Kenneth Hoyt of the Southern District of Texas and for the Immigration Legal Clinic.

“I practice personal injury law because I really love it and believe in the people we represent. What makes it even better is working with an amazing trial team of attorneys and paralegals. We are like family.”

After earning her law degree, Alma began her professional career at the firm of Vela & Reed, PLLC, in downtown Houston representing injured clients. Since 2009, Alma has represented people who are in need of someone with knowledge, experience, and compassion to help them navigate the complicated legal system.

Alma, a native Houstonian, describes herself as a family-oriented and curious person who enjoys learning, traveling, challenging herself, and living a healthy lifestyle all while spending as much time as possible with her pretty extraordinary family.
