Misty Hataway-Coné is no stranger to challenging litigation, and if given the opportunity to work on complex cases 24/7, she would be ecstatic to take on the hard cases that most attorneys wouldn't want to touch. Misty's love for a challenge comes naturally and began decades ago when she first started her undergraduate studies at Texas A&M University in College Station.
Driven by a duty to serve, she began as a biomedical science major with hopes of attending medical school. But one year later, Misty followed her calling as she changed majors to political science and speech communication with plans to attend law school. Always striving to see both sides of an argument, Misty became heavily involved in both Aggie Democrats and College Republicans, working on local campaigns in the Brazos County area and throughout Texas. She also became involved in the Texas A&M Pre-Law Society, which further exposed Misty to the future that would lie ahead.
Misty is an accomplished attorney who excelled in both her academic and advocacy pursuits at South Texas College of Law-Houston. Throughout her law school journey, she achieved Dean's List recognition, was appointed to prestigious honors societies, and demonstrated exceptional leadership as the Chairman of the Board of Advocates. Her passion for moot court competitions led her to win a national championship, where she was recognized as the best advocate and best brief recipient at the Evan A. Evans National Constitutional Law Moot Court tournament in 2000.
After graduating from law school, Misty embarked on new adventures in Dallas, Texas, as she began working for a national defense firm. Misty continued practicing law at "big firms" until 2016 when she left "big law" and began working on her own. Always striving to serve others and make a difference, Misty started working for smaller businesses, individuals, and other law firms, utilizing her unique skill set to resolve the toughest litigation matters.
Since going solo, Misty's commitment to service continues. In her free time, she proudly serves the Greater Houston community with her involvement in her local Rotary Club and two separate Chamber of Commerce organizations. Misty regularly donates her free time to local soccer programs and booster clubs, various sections of the State Bar, and HBA initiatives, including Lawyers for Literacy. Misty also serves on the board of the Alumni Association at South Texas College of Law-Houston. Misty is also a proud member of the Houston Trial Lawyers Association and Texas Trial Lawyers Association. For the last three years, she has worked as an adjunct professor at Thurgood Marshall School of Law, teaching appellate litigation.
