Principal and Managing Attorney
Tina Locklear has more than 17 years of experience in law, with a focus on employment law for the last 5 years. As the Principal of the plaintiff's firm she founded in 2006, she seeks to creatively find solutions for clients. Her holistic approach takes into consideration what the client’s goals are, their financial capabilities, and their emotional ability to deal with the cumbersome legal system.
“My pledge to each client is that we will give your cause a voice and find a solution that puts you in a better place than before you came to us. I will oversee your case from beginning to end, and always return your calls or emails."
Tina loves to travel, play golf and take her dog on long walks in the park. She enjoys meditation and yoga, and she is always up for a good game of Scrabble.
Prior to managing her own law office, Tina was General Counsel of the technology and information division of a Fortune 300 Company from 2000 to 2006.
Tina received her law degree from the Western State University College of Law, where she graded onto Law Review and served as Staff, Symposium Editor, and Managing Editor.
