Rafael Echiverri is a new associate at McDowell Hetherington. Rafael’s law school experience concentrated on business law and on legal research and writing. Outside of the classroom, he was a contributing digest editor for the University of Houston Journal of Commercial and Consumer Law. He has written numerous articles for the journal, making opinions issued by the Texas courts more accessible to everyday consumers. This position gave him valuable insight into the relationship between consumers and businesses.
During the summers, Rafael had the privilege of working with both a mass torts practice and an oil and gas practice. He had the opportunity to aid the victims of the California wildfires with regard to claiming the settlements they were entitled to. This one-on-one work with numerous clients taught Rafael to approach the practice of law with compassion and diligence. In addition, he had the chance to help landowners transfer their mineral rights in transactions that were fair and valuable to them.
In his free time, Rafael enjoys reading and hopes to one day publish a novel of his own.
