Texas Lawyer Names Tressie McKeon to 2020 ‘On the Rise’ List

September 22, 2020 – Press Releases

Fox Rothschild LLP congratulates Tressie E. McKeon, who was named to the list of attorneys “On the Rise” by Texas Lawyer.

This recognition highlights legal innovators in the Texas business community who are amassing a book of business that demonstrates “expertise in litigation or transactional work” and who “commit themselves to pro bono, charitable and professional volunteer work.”

McKeon serves as Co-Chair of the firm’s Aviation Practice Group, which handles a broad range of matters for major international air carriers, airport operators, manufacturers and aviation service providers. She represents airlines, airports, charter services and other aviation players in contract and business disputes as well as regulatory compliance and transactional matters. Paired with her experience as a licensed private pilot, her knowledge of the aviation industry is multidimensional, giving her a novel perspective when advising clients.

Dedicated to serving her community, McKeon frequently commits her time to supporting those in need. She was the driving force behind the firm’s support of Business Jet Cares, which supports Pets for Vets, a charity that pairs pets in need of home with military veterans in need of companionship. She also works with the State Fair of Texas’ Big Tex Scholarship Program, leading the organization’s annual fundraiser, which last year resulted in $250,000 to support scholarship funds. McKeon’s next goal is to organize an initiative to provide aid to children of immigrants seeking to come to the United States.

She earned her J.D. from St. Mary’s University School of Law and her B.A., cum laude, from the University of Texas at Dallas.
