Olivia Ponce was born and raised in Marshall, TX, where she was homeschooled with her nine siblings. She graduated cum laude from Dallas Baptist University with a B.A. in Philosophy. During her college years, she also pursued competitive triathlons and jazz vocal performance.
In 2016, Olivia attended Ave Maria School of Law in Naples, FL, where she received her Juris Doctorate. Her greatest achievement while in law school was working in the Ave Maria Trafficking Clinic, where she helped victims of labor trafficking and their families achieve legal status in the United States.
In 2019, Olivia moved back to Texas to sit for the Texas bar and began her law practice as an Assistant District Attorney in Harrison County. While in that role, her primary focus was juvenile prosecution, in which she sought the best rehabilitative option for criminal youth and made extensive effort to unite the various agencies involved in the juvenile criminal process.
Olivia moved back to the Dallas-Fort Worth area in the spring of 2021 to pursue a more client-focused role. It had always been Olivia’s primary motivation to serve families in a way that impacted generational well-being; estate planning became a natural outlet for both her skill and passion.
In her free time, Olivia enjoys spending time with her husband, Mario, and extensive family. She is also an amateur paleo chef as well as an avid reader and jazz listener.
