Trusted Lawyer in Houston, TX Serving Harris County

About Van Stean Messer Law Firm:

Lynn was born in Galveston, Texas while her father was in medical school.  During the time her father served in Vietnam, she moved and resided all over the State of Texas.  After this time she settled in Dallas, Texas where she attended elementary, junior high; and part of high school until her move to Alvin, Texas, where she completed high school and graduated.

Following high school, Lynn moved to Austin and attended her undergraduate studies at the University of Texas at Austin focusing on a degree in business.  After graduation in 1987, she began studying law at St. Mary’s University School of Law in San Antonio.  She graduated in 1991 from law school and passed the bar exam immediately thereafter.

Lynn's first job out of law school in 1991, was with the Ft. Bend County District Attorney's Office. It was here that Lynn learned to try cases before juries.  She handled many misdemeanor cases, including DWI; unlawful carrying of a weapon; assault; family violence; terroristic threat and possession of marijuana cases.

Lynn left the district attorney's office to join a firm of some of Houston’s most celebrated criminal defense attorneys.

Following this experience, Lynn joined a tax litigation firm as a managing attorney and litigating for the Houston Independent School District for a period of four years.

After this litigation practice, Lynn began working as a member of the federal Criminal Justice Act Criminal Justice Panel, representing indigent criminal defendants charged with federal criminal cases. During this opportunity, she completed her case load with state criminal cases.

Lynn takes pride in her work ethic, attention to detail, professionalism and works very hard to fight for her clients in each and every case.

In addition to her love of the law, Lynn enjoys skiing, spending time with family and friends and raising her pets, Lucy and Ralphy.
