Lizzie Pannill Fletcher Attorney

Lizzie Pannill Fletcher career began in 2006 at Vinson & Elkins, an international law firm founded in Houston more than 100 years ago. A few years later, I joined Ahmad, Zavitsanos, Anaipakos, Alavi & Mensing (AZA), a 50-person firm based in Houston that focuses on high-stakes business litigation. I became the firm’s first woman partner in 2015.

As a lawyer, I have had the privilege of representing Houstonians from diverse backgrounds who face difficult issues every day. They work in oilfields, hospitals, boardrooms, and small businesses. I listen to them. I solve their problems. I tell their stories. And I fight for them.

I am proud that my work as a lawyer has led me to be recognized as one of the Best Lawyers in America, Texas SuperLawyers, and other professional accolades. But I am most proud that my work has helped improve the lives of many people in this community.

For years, I have worked for real Houstonians, with real problems, who need common-sense solutions not platitudes, theories, or empty promises. This is true of my clients and many others. As a co-founder of Planned Parenthood Young Leaders in the year 2000, I helped recruit a new generation of leaders for this crucial community partner.

As a volunteer lawyer, I helped Texas Appleseed with critical research for dismantling the School-to-Prison Pipeline. As a Board Member of Writers in the Schools (WITS) and Open Dance Project, I am helping young Houstonians find their voices.

Houston matters to me. My family has made this district our home for many years. My husband Scott and I, his two grown children, my parents, and my sisters and their families all call Houston home. We are committed to this city and the people who live here. I am also committed to working to ensure that this community’s core values inclusion, innovation, and working together—result in progress, equality, and opportunity for all Americans.

Lizzie Pannill Fletcher U.S. House of Representatives

During the 2018 elections, Lizzie ran for the United States House of Representatives in Texas’s 7th congressional district. She defeated Laura Moser in the Democratic Party primary election after a primary and runoff election that saw Democrats sharply divided between Fletcher (backed by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee) and Moser (backed by Bernie Sanders’s group Our Revolution.)

In the November 6 general election, Fletcher campaigned as a moderate against nine-term Republican incumbent John Culberson, ultimately defeating him by five percentage points (52.5% versus 47.5% of all votes.)

According to the Houston Chronicle:

The [Democratic] primary in effect became a referendum on whether Democrats should oppose Culberson by whipping up the dormant part of their base or, by nominating Fletcher, pull in centrists and ex-Republicans.

Tuesday’s election results proved they could do both: In beating Culberson with more than 52 percent of the vote, Fletcher’s winning coalition included right-leaning moderates, but also hardline progressives who turned out in droves to support Democrat Beto O’Rourke’s turnout-driven Senate campaign.

Culberson held his own in his longstanding base of west Houston, parts of which he had represented for three decades at the state and federal levels, as well as in the Memorial area. However, Fletcher swamped him in the district’s share of southwest Houston, as well as the Bear Creek area.

When she took office in 2019, she became only the fourth person to represent the 7th since its creation in 1967, the first Democrat, and the first woman. This western Houston district was best known as the district that sent future President George H. W. Bush to Congress as its first representative.

He gave up the seat to make an unsuccessful run for Senate in 1970 and was succeeded by fellow Republican Bill Archer. In turn, Archer handed the seat to Culberson in 2001.
