Veronica Chidester Attorney


Veronica Chidester has demonstrated her passion for advocacy in cases ranging from Justice of the Peace to Federal Court, and everything in between. She attended The University of Texas at Austin for both undergraduate and law school. She worked in the legislature and was a lobbyist prior to getting her law degree. At UT Law, she discovered a love for advocacy through trial.

After law school, she worked at the Texas Attorney General’s Office in the Law Enforcement Defense Division, where she tried Federal cases in various jurisdictions throughout the State. As a part of this job, she had the opportunity to visit almost every prison in Texas to familiarize herself with the justice system.

Veronica went on to work at the Travis County Attorney’s Office where she prosecuted everything from Class C traffic tickets to high risk assaults. Veronica became a chief prosecutor in misdemeanor court and then worked as the chief prosecutor in the family violence division. She then went on to work at the Travis County District Attorney’s Office in the special prosecution division handling family violence cases. Later, she moved to the criminal trial court division, where she dealt with a variety of felony cases.

Veronica also spends her summer teaching a course on trial tactics at UT Law. She continues to be involved in promoting advocacy by her involvement in mock trial competitions and board of advocate activities. She understands the importance of being able to back up her clients through fierce but measured advocacy.
