Best Best & Krieger Partner Sarah Christopher Foley is one of three attorneys in her family. Sarah’s parents, Tracy Christopher, Chief Justice of the Texas Fourteenth Court of Appeals, and Vance Christopher, a shareholder at Crain Caton & James specializing in business and fiduciary litigation, are both first-generation Texas lawyers. The Christopher family’s legacy (and possibly future!) in law was recently featured in The Houston Lawyer’s “Law in the Family” profile.

“Growing up with two lawyer parents meant early exposure to the concepts of making your case, evidentiary support, and appeals to alternative arbiters of justice (which could be mom or dad, depending on how the argument was going),” Sarah told The Houston Lawyer.

Sarah, a water rights litigator and water supply planning attorney in BBK’s Environmental Law & Natural Resources practice group, represents both public and private sector clients on a broad range of water law and policy matters, such as surface and groundwater rights issues, water transactions and conveyance, and water supply analysis and management.

“After enjoying numerous environmental law courses at Southern Methodist University’s Dedman School of Law, I was determined to practice environmental law. I now focus on water resource litigation and water supply planning issues. Our daughters, ages 6 and 4, are already displaying judicial and litigious temperaments.”

With six grandchildren in the family, Sarah’s parents do hope to someday have a third generation Christopher family attorney!

BBK currently has a presence in Texas, with attorneys doing environmental, flood control, public infrastructure and development work in Houston and the Gulf Coast.
