Sejal’s passion for law started before she was even born. “My parents went though tremendous hardship in the 70’s. They were in Uganda when Idi Amin kicked out all of the Indians. My parents, who lived in the country, had no rights or representation. The stories of their struggles during this time left a lasting impression on me and influenced my decision to become an attorney.”
After graduating from the University of Houston with a double major in Psychology and Political Science, Sejal went on to pursue her law degree at South Texas College of Law. “As the first child on my father’s side of the family to graduate from college, let alone law school, I feel an obligation to serve not just my family, but the community at large. That obligation pushes me professionally as I find my drive in the injured people that we represent.”
That drive is what helped Sejal and the Williams Kherkher Hart Boundas Law Firm team to assist Sandra Boulware and her family. “She was 37 with a young daughter and teenaged son and developed Primary Pulmonary Hypertension from the drug Fen-Phen. She was on oxygen and was unable to work long hours along with having a young child, but she was always upbeat, positive and thankful that she was able to have one more day with her family and that our firm was willing to help her. We were able to get a nice settlement for her and her family.”
To Sejal, the teamwork within the firm is what makes Williams Kherkher different. “I work with an excellent team. We all get along and support one another. We all come from different walks of life and unique backgrounds, but when we band together; we are a true force to be reckoned with. That unity and our common cause, getting the best result for our clients, is the real advantage this firm has.” She adds, “We form bonds with our clients and want the very best for them so when a client is happy with their outcome, that is not just a good day for them, but it is a good day for me and the firm!
Sejal, who grew up in Sugar Land, Texas with her parents and younger sister, has sage advice for her clients or anyone who is involved in any sort of lawsuit and that is, “Be patient! We work hard on your behalf and will do everything possible to get the best possible outcome for you, but the legal process takes time. ”
