Welcome Gloria!

Meet our summer intern, Gloria Solorzano

Wright Connatser is excited to welcome Gloria Solorzano as our summer intern. She just finished her first year at the University of North Texas Dallas College of Law, and, not to brag, but she attained Dean’s List status both semesters and is currently in the top 10 percent of her class.

She is already busy learning more about business law and corporate litigation. She sees that as a potential area of focus, extending her undergraduate course of study in business management and marketing. She’s a graduate of Texas Tech, among the first generation in her family to attend college.

Only two weeks in, she has already been hands-on drafting a master service agreement, amendment to agreements, 194 disclosure request and a written consent form. She’s been working on litigation disputes with Natalie Brandt, real estate closing deals with Robin Minick and drafting contractual documents with Patrick Tickner and Adam Connatser. She credits each attorney at Wright Connatser for creating a mentor-like environment, providing knowledge and guidance for every assignment.

While she always remembers wanting to be a lawyer, it often seemed an unattainable goal during her undergrad years. Then she secured a job working for a district judge in Lubbock, who became a mentor and introduced her to the legal world. Gloria took a gap year after graduation and then started at UNT Law last fall.

When not in school, studying or working, you’ll probably find Gloria in the kitchen. She loves to cook for her family. She and her two sisters and one brother live with their mother in Grand Prairie and are a tight-knit unit that love to share meals and travel together. (We hear she’s famous for her chicken and rice.)
