April Cotton is an Associate in the firm's Dallas office. She focuses her practice on medical malpractice, correctional health care, products liability, labor and employment, and education matters.

April currently serves on the national counsel team for an asbestos defendant. Prior to joining GRSM, she worked at a full-service corporate defense firm where she worked primarily in the areas of products liability, premises liability, general liability, medical malpractice, labor and employment, and education matters. Earlier in her career, April worked as an internal products liability litigation paralegal for one of the largest retail chains in the United States. While serving as a paralegal, April provided support during one of Arkansas’ historic desegregation cases where plaintiffs sought unitary status, decades after the Court determined school districts were unconstitutionally segregated and placed under court supervision since 1982. She also participated in the representation of several institutions of higher learning in Title VII and Title IX litigation. In addition, she has assisted in the defense of civil rights claims against correctional health care professionals.
