DCPA is pleased to welcome Martha Gallegos as Secretary and Lisa Pittman as Treasurer for 2017!  These two seasoned paralegals bring a lot to our association as officers, and we are fortunate to have them on board the Executive Committee.




Martha Gallegos majored in criminal justice at St. Edwards University and worked in Law Enforcement as a Deputy Reserve for the Terry County Sheriff’s Department.  Martha has worked for the County of Denton for eleven years; she was in the County Clerk’s Civil/Probate Department for five years, and has been a member of the Denton County District Attorney’s Misdemeanor Division for nearly six years.  She earned her paralegal Certificate from PDI University of North Texas in April 2015.  Martha served as a member of the DCPA Social Committee and is a regular participant in all events held by the association.  She is a faithful volunteer for the National Kidney Association and PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease) Foundation of North Texas.  Martha participates in a PKD 5K walk/run fundraiser every year.  The amount raised this year to find a cure is at $1,599,337.75 - very close to their goal of $2,000,000.00!


Lisa Pittman has been a paralegal for twenty-one years and has been with the law firm of Hayes, Berry, White & Vanzant working with partner Richard Hayes for over sixteen years.  She has extensive experience in residential and commercial real estate, oil & gas, transactional, eminent domain, and civil litigation.  Lisa has served DCPA in a variety of roles over the years: as Secretary/Parliamentarian in 2006, 2007, 2008 & 2011; and as Treasurer from 2009 to the present.  She has served as Committee Chair for the Legal Directory Committee, Bylaws Ad Hoc Committee, and Newsletter Committee.   Lisa chaired the SBPD Public Relations Committee and Mentor/Protégé Committee 2009-2012; served as subchair for the PR Committee 2007-2008; and has been a TAPS on-site volunteer for the past eleven years.


Congratulations on your election Martha and Lisa!  We look forward to a great year!
