AUSTIN, Texas, June 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Three Austin attorneys have joined Weisbart Springer Hayes LLP, a new boutique law firm focusing on high-stakes business, technology, employment, and aviation litigation.

Sara Janes provides trial, arbitration and appellate experience in a variety of complex commercial disputes in both state and federal courts. These matters have included the successful defense of corporations in class actions, labor and employment disputes, trademark claims and insurance matters. Named to the Texas Rising Stars list for the past two years, Ms. Janes earned her law degree from the University of Texas School of Law in 2006, and her undergraduate degree from the University of Texas in 1999. She previously worked in the Austin office of Fulbright & Jaworski.

Mia Adams advises clients in business-related claims and has participated in significant jury trials and major class actions, including a legal malpractice settlement involving more than 950 individuals.

The firm has leased office space in Austin’s new Block 21 project, a mixed-use development that includes The W Hotel and Condominiums as well as the KLRU Austin City Limits Theater.
