SBSB Eastham Opens New Office in Corpus Christi, Growing Already Robust Admiralty and Maritime Practice

SBSB Eastham, is pleased to announce the opening of its new law office in Corpus Christi. The addition will allow the firm to focus on growing its already robust Admiralty and Maritime practice and expand its depth of services in the Corpus Christi area.

“It’s no secret the Port of Corpus Christi is booming, now the third largest port in the U.S. based on tonnage,” said SBSB Eastham founder John Schouest. “With the number of cases we already handle in Corpus and given its immense growth, opening this new office in Corpus was the natural next move – and we couldn’t be more excited.”

The new office will be led by new SBSB Eastham Partner Carra Miller, who joins the firm from Welder Leshin LLP in Corpus Christi. A seasoned maritime litigation lawyer, Ms. Miller has unique perspective and extensive experience representing clients in all areas, including commercial disputes, vessel collisions, surges, and personal injury and death cases.

A graduate of Tulane University Law School, Ms. Miller is licensed to practice law in Texas and Louisiana. She was recently named the Outstanding Young Lawyer of the Year by the Corpus Christi Bar Association, along with the Top Attorney in Civil Litigation.

“We searched for just the right fit for the expansion of our Litigation Team into Corpus Christi. Carra is that person,” said SBSB Eastham partner Susan Noe Wilson. “She brings energy and a new perspective to the representation of SBSB Eastham’s already existing clients in the South Texas region. I am excited for our clients to get to know our dynamic new partner.”

“Joining this incredible group of lawyers was an easy decision,” said Ms. Miller. “Opening an office here in Corpus Christi is a clear example of the firm’s commitment to its maritime practice, which is why I am grateful for the trust put in me to not only establish the office, but also continue to grow it over the next few years.”
