Arati Furness is a managing attorney at Nachawati Law Group in the Dallas office. Arati focuses her practice on product liability and toxic torts, specifically medical devices, drugs and herbicides. Arati earned her bachelor’s degree in 1999 from the University of Texas at Austin. She earned her Juris Doctor from Texas Wesleyan University School of Law (now Texas A&M School of Law) in 2002.
She began her law career in California working as a defense attorney. This past experience provides an advantage, as she has a better understanding of the inner workings of defendants which makes her an incredible advocate for plaintiffs. Sadly, Arati’s jump back to Texas was initially spurred by a family emergency. Her father, suffered at the hand of a negligent doctor – and still suffers more than a decade later. This drives her passion to help those in need.
Most recently, while working tirelessly at another firm here in Texas, Arati was selected to be part of the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee for the Exactech Product Liability Multidistrict Litigation in the Eastern District of New York. This accomplishment is incredibly significant, as she is the first attorney at that firm to be selected to such a committee. This achievement impacts people nationwide as she was part of a team that encourages diversity and allows younger attorneys to serve in high-standing roles throughout their careers
