Criminal Defense & Family Law
Since passing the bar exam in 2011, Kama has practiced mainly criminal defense. She started at the Regional Public Defender for Capital Cases, where she worked on capital murder cases. On these cases, the State was seeking the death penalty for her clients. In this job, Kama worked as a mitigation specialist, focusing on gathering information and looking into the lives of her clients in order to show a jury that her clients were deserving of a punishment lesser than the death penalty.
Kama also spent nearly 2 years working as an attorney at the Burnet County Public Defender’s Office where she was their First Assistant Public Defender. She worked primarily on Felony and Juvenile criminal defense cases. This experience allowed her to gain more trial experience, and to handle a wider array of cases.
Since joining McGirr Law, Kama has been trained in the intricacies of Family Law cases, and now practices both Criminal Defense and Family law.
Kama is married and lives in Round Rock with her husband Sean and their cats. She enjoys volunteering at a local non-profit that works with at-risk youth in the high school age range, as well as painting, yoga, and occasionally participating in a triathlon with her husband.
