Harris Hoss PLLC
For more than 20 years, Felicia's advice, experience, and skill as a negotiator and advocate in complex civil and commercial disputes have helped parties resolve disputes. Felicia has been a trusted advisor in some of her clients’ toughest personal and professional times and recognized by her peers for inclusion among The Best Lawyers® in America in commercial litigation (2021-2022).
She has experience resolving disagreements inside and outside of the courtroom for both plaintiffs and defendants — individuals and entrepreneurs, as well as privately-held and publicly-traded companies with local, national, and/or international teams and operations.
Over the years, Felicia has helped parties navigate complex legal and business problems in a wide range of industries involving a broad spectrum of claims. Felicia’s experience includes resolving conflicts involving contractual rights, negligence, personal injury and wrongful death claims, partnership formation and duties, trade secrets, employment agreements, non-compete and non-solicitation, fraud, business disparagement and defamation, fiduciary duties, corporate governance, federal and state employment laws, lease agreements, landlord-tenants, nursing home operations, product liability, seismic exploration rights and other real property interests, UCC, and warranty claims.
Given the depth and breadth of Felicia’s experience, she appreciates the pressures, uncertainties, and demands lawyers and their clients deal with in conflict management and resolution. She understands the dynamics of negotiations between parties wanting to deescalate, avoid, or resolve conflict while also preserving and protecting litigation positions, should negotiations prove unsuccessful.
This kind of understanding and experience proves relevant during mediated discussions with lawyers and their clients while they are considering, evaluating, and confidentially negotiating risk management and dispute resolution options.
This kind of understanding and experience also proves relevant as an arbitrator. Felicia is keenly aware of the importance of neutrality in arbitration and goes out of her way to ensure all parties and their counsel trust that her neutrality, objectivity, and judgment are never compromised.
As a neutral, Felicia accepts private engagements and court appointments, in addition to serving as a neutral on public and private panels such as:

Additionally, Felicia served two elected terms as a Councilmember for the City of Pearland, and in 2009-2010, was Mayor Pro Tem.
