November 7, 2012   |   By Vela Wood

Vela Wood PC would like to announce the addition of three new attorneys to the firm: Ray T. Khirallah, Jr., David Khirallah, and Ashley Robertson. We extend a warm welcome to all of them and a hearty congratulations to David and Ashley, who recently passed the July 2012 Texas State Bar Exam.

Ray T. Khirallah, Jr., joins Vela Wood as a partner, having previously served of counsel to the firm since June 2012. Ray’s practice focuses primarily on helping businesses and individuals in commercial, health care, and personal injury disputes. Prior to joining Vela Wood of counsel, Ray worked as an associate at Cooper & Scully, P.C. and at Wilson Elser Moskowitz Edelman & Dicker, LLP. Ray earned a B.A. in English from the University of Dallas in 1998 and a J.D. from Suffolk University Law School in 2007.

In addition to our newest partner, Vela Wood is pleased to add two new associates to our growing firm. Both David Khirallah and Ashley Robertson were admitted to the bar recently after passing the July 2012 Bar Exam. David and Ashley have been working with Vela Wood as law clerks since graduating with their J.D.s in 2012.

David graduated from the University of Dallas with a B.A. in Economics and Finance in 2006 and an M.B.A. in Corporate Finance in 2009. He received his J.D. from Ave Maria School of Law. His practice will focus primarily on commercial litigation, landlord/tenant issues, and personal injury disputes.

Ashley graduated from the University of Texas McCombs School of Business in 2009 with a BBA in Accounting and a Business Honors degree from the Business Honors Program and an MPA in Professional Accounting. She received her J.D. from Southern Methodist University’s Dedman School of Law and graduated cum laude. Her practice will focus primarily on corporate matters, startups, entity formation and Angel/Venture financing.

These new additions to the firm will increase Vela Wood’s expanding practice with an ever-present focus on delivering valuable counsel to our clients.  No matter the issue, Vela Wood prides itself on having the resources and abilities to assist you with all of your legal needs.
