Beyond Law: Getting Personal with Attorney Batami Baskin

Sep 6, 2023 | Attorney Features

Attorney Batami Baskin’s path to practicing law began during her college years at The University of Texas at Austin, inspired by her immigrant parents’ teachings about the significance of the political process. This interview sheds light on Batami’s professional journey and her passions outside the courtroom, including volunteering and exploring Houston’s dynamic culinary scene.

When did you decide to be a lawyer? 

I decided to go to law school sometime while in college. My parents immigrated to the United States and, at an early age, taught me about and exposed me to the political process and its importance. When I attended The University of Texas at Austin for undergraduate school, I majored in Plan II Honors and Business Honors, which further inspired me to attend law school.

What is the best part of your job?  

I enjoy helping others—being a helping hand to those facing a challenging situation. I also enjoy collaboration, teamwork, and problem-solving.

What do you wish your clients knew about you? 

That I empathize with them, particularly with the complicated legal process that they are forced to engage in.

What do you like to do outside of the office?  

I enjoy swimming, walking at Memorial Park, exploring Houston’s restaurant scene, volunteering, and spending time with my family and friends.

If you were a car, what make/model would you be and why? 

I’m a small SUV—practical but with high performance. So maybe the Astin Martin DBX (or maybe that’s more aspirational).

What’s the best thing you can cook? 

I’m a terrible cook. But I can put together a great salad.
