(June 18, 2013) -- The UTSA Office of Legal Affairs announces the addition of a new junior associate counsel. Bianca Wyont, who joined the legal affairs office June 3, primarily will handle litigation and employment law issues.
Wyont earned an undergraduate degree in political science at Tufts University. She attended St. Mary's University School of Law in San Antonio, and after moving to Houston, completed her law degree at South Texas College of Law.
Since earning her law degree, Wyont's practice has focused on litigation defense with experience in both state and federal courts. She was a 2008-2009 Houston-Galveston area Albert Schweitzer Fellow, enabling her to volunteer in a program assisting chemically dependent women to retain their children throughout their treatment. Wyont also ran in the Boston Marathon.
