Kathryn Becker Gameros is a graduate of Middlebury College and Cornell Law School. Kathryn accepted an offer to become part of the Healthcare Section at Strasburger & Price’s Dallas office following law school graduation. In addition to defending individuals and hospitals against malpractice claims, she began to focus on products liability involving both medical devices and pharmaceuticals. Her caseload and mentor at Strasburger & Price provided her with real world and courtroom experience. It was this skill set that she brought to the table when joining to the international firm of Jones Day in 2000. At Jones Day, Kathryn continued to handle products liability cases as well as commercial litigation. Kathryn has worked at big and midsized firms where she gained extensive experience in products liability matters in both state and federal jurisdictions across the United States. Along with her partner Roy Atwood, she currently serves as national coordinating counsel to a respiratory protection product manufacturer in cases alleging exposure to toxic substances.
A transplant to Dallas, Kathryn has enjoyed cultivating an extensive network of both professional and cultural organizations. She has been licensed by the Supreme Court of Texas since 1997. She joined the Dallas Bar Association that same year. Kathryn was appointed to the Dallas Subcommittee for Unauthorized Practice of Law by the Texas Supreme Court. Her role is to investigate complaints and pursue injunctions as needed to stop non-lawyers from misrepresenting themselves to unsuspecting clients. In 2001 and 2002, Kathryn participated in the Leadership Arts Institute where she helped create a Passport to the Arts program that provided 53,000 DISD students the opportunity to participate in 13 area cultural and arts organizations. Following her completion of the Leadership Arts program, she was matched with the Texas Discovery Gardens where she remains a member of their Board of Directors. The mission of the Texas Discovery Gardens’ is to help children and adults discover and learn to sustain the natural world. As an active supporter of the arts, Kathryn also currently serves on the board of HP Arts, an organization that both encourages and funds arts enrichment in the Highland Park Independent School District at the elementary, intermediate, middle and high school levels.
