Maggie Cheu – Associate Attorney

As a native Austinite, I’m delighted to be practicing law in my hometown. In 2010, I graduated from the Plan II Honors program at The University of Texas at Austin, where I was involved in the Plan II Students’ Association and named Phi Beta Kappa. During my years as an undergraduate student, I became increasingly interested in the practical effects the law can have on children and the family. So, after finishing up as a University of Texas undergraduate, I enrolled in the University of Texas School of Law. Because who doesn’t want three more years of school?

While earning my law degree, I served as Editor in Chief of the Texas Journal of Women & the Law, on the Executive Board of the Abuse Survivors Assistance Program, and was named a Pro Bono Superstar by the William Wayne Justice Center for Public Interest Law. After many fond memories made, I graduated in 2013 having attained official double-Longhorn status.

Immediately following graduation, I moved north to join the Queens County District Attorney’s Office in New York City and spent three years prosecuting cases involving domestic violence and human trafficking. I then took my experience to the Kings County District Attorney’s Office, turning my focus to the prosecution of sex crimes and child abuse cases in Brooklyn.

Though you can take the girl out of Texas, you just can’t take the Texas out of the girl. I am very happy to be back in Austin advocating on behalf of families in times of crisis, and I look forward to working with you.
