Maggie counsels clients in a broad range of civil matters. While her focus is primarily based on medical malpractice litigation, she also has vast experience litigating premises liability lawsuits, insurance coverage issues, automobile collision lawsuits, labor and employment matters, and general commercial disputes. She has litigated cases in Texas, Louisiana, Missouri, and New Mexico.
Maggie received her Louisiana bar license in 2008 and then obtained her Texas license in 2009. After working in Louisiana and Texas with a regional defense firm, Maggie joined Serpe Andrews in March 2011. In 2021, Maggie obtained her certification to mediate.
Some of Maggie’s achievements include both appellate and trial victories. In OakBend Medical Center v. Domingo Martinez, Jr., 515 S.W.3d 536 (Houston App. [14th Dist.] 2017), she successfully appealed a trial court’s ruling denying summary judgment based on governmental immunity. The Fourteenth Court of Appeals held OakBend Medical Center was immune from suit for all claims arising from the escape of a psychiatric patient. The Fourteenth Court of appeals reversed the trial court’s order and rendered judgment dismissing the lawsuit for lack of jurisdiction for the claims asserted. Most recently, in 2021, Maggie first chaired a premises liability bench trial in which a defense verdict was obtained on behalf of The Woman’s Hospital of Texas. Terry Hopkins v. CHCA Woman’s Hospital, L.P. d/b/a The Woman’s Hospital of Texas, Cause No. 2017-39068, in the 215th Judicial District Court of Harris County.
When not working, Maggie enjoys spending time and traveling with her husband, Louie, and three boys.
