Shasta Blanton has been with The Cox Pradia Law Firm, P.L.L.C. since January 2013, beginning as a law clerk. After passing the July 2014 Texas State Bar Examination, Blanton began working as an Associate Attorney. As an Associate Attorney with the Houston firm, Blanton has worked heavily with all areas of personal injury. Those areas include: Auto Accidents, Truck Accidents, Products Liability, Pharmaceutical Malpractice, Medical Malpractice, Work Injuries, Business Litigation, Wrongful death, and other types of catastrophic injuries.

In addition to having a firm grasp of Tort Law and Reform, Blanton is a certified mediator. This background allows her to evaluate cases and successfully prepare cases for settlement. Once a case is accepted, Blanton is involved in both the pre-litigation and litigation process, seeing the case through settlement or trial. Blanton knows that true preparation for settlement is preparation for trial. Blanton believes that each case, no matter the value, should be trial ready!

Ms. Blanton earned her Bachelors of Art at the illustrious Howard University in 2011. Passionate about risk management and claim assessment, Blanton worked in a law firm specializing in Business litigation. In 2011, Ms. Blanton began attending law school at the historic Thurgood Marshall School of Law. While there, she worked as a Tort law tutor for two years during which she learned that she could take her scholastic knowledge and assist those who have experienced agonizing incidents. Ms. Blanton's passion for the legal profession is rooted in her wanting to be the voice for those who's voice is not ordinarily heard. "As an attorney, a counselor, I believe that I have the ability to use the law, its existence or non-existence, to make a difference in the State of Texas, one case at a time."

Blanton was born and raised in San Diego, California alongside two younger siblings and by two hard working parents specializing in nursing and computer science.
