Deborah Crain has been an attorney since 2002. She obtained her B.S. in Marketing in 1999 from the University of New Orleans and her Juris Doctor from the Louisiana State University, Paul M. Hebert School of Law in 2002. Ms. Crain worked in private practice in Louisiana after she attended law school, representing numerous individuals and entities regarding business matters, tax disputes, road defect claims, and insurance defense cases. In 2009, after her father passed away, Ms. Crain and her family moved to Texas where she started her own private practice. After ten years on her own, she merged with Kearney, McWilliams & Davis, finding the right balance of “a big law firm” that still feels like family.

Deborah Crain focuses on business-related matters. From setting up new businesses to business litigation, she is very passionate about helping business owners. Deborah wants to be a strategic partner in client’s success. Ms. Crain’s practice areas also include construction issues, both commercial and residential.

“Representative Litigation and Transactions”:

  • Ms. Crain provides tailored business solutions for her clients. No client is too small or too large. Ms. Crain first works to understand her clients’ goals, and then she formulates a strategy around those goals. The right solutions come from careful analysis of the client’s goals. Whether it is setting up a new business, advising a business client on a partnership agreement, or finding the right contract to meet specific needs, Ms. Crain’s comprehensive background is what her clients rely on to chart the right path towards success.
  • Ms. Crain also manages a litigation practice, representing both plaintiffs and defendants. Ms. Crain is known for her fighting spirit and is absolutely relentless for her clients. She helps her clients understand the process and navigate their way through litigation.
  • She also knows when and how to find an effective resolution when it is in the parties' best interests. Many times she is able to find creative solutions for her clients, even before litigation begins. One of her sayings is that “we will chart the path of least resistance” meaning she finds unique ways to bring problems to closure for her clients quickly.

Outside of her law practice, Ms. Crain is passionate about the deaf community. She volunteers weekly at the Triumph Church in Fort Bend County as a sign language interpreter. She also was instrumental in working with the Harris County District Attorney’s office in implementing video remote interpreting so that every deaf person has access to a sign language interpreter when encountering Houston police.

Ms. Crain also contributes her time and resources to support the local schools in her community (in Fort Bend County). Whether it being a financial supporter or speaking at a middle school about being an attorney, Ms. Crain believes it is imperative for the children of the next generation to have the resources and information needed to make good choices for their future. Ms. Crain serves as corporate counsel for the Fort Bend ISD Education Foundation, which is an integral community partner in supporting our schools.

Ms. Crain was featured in the State Bar of Texas in 2015 for her work and was awarded by the readers of the Fort Bend Star as “Best Attorney in Fort Bend County” in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2020.
