Pablo

Team Mascot

Pablo is our our official mascot and director of our “Welcoming Committee”

He can be found greeting clients, giving tours of the office to our guests,
sniffing things, and trying to fetch lost toys from under the couch.

Though he works hard at his daily responsibilities, it’s not all work with no play!
He is always on the lookout for new adventures and mischief!

Benton Ross Watson

Attorney

After graduating cum laude from South Texas College of Law in May of 2013, Benton moved back to his hometown of Cameron to open up a general law practice, and help run his family’s agriculture and livestock business. Benton made his name as a trial attorney and litigator in many legal areas — from business, commercial, and family law disputes to personal injury, probate, real estate, and criminal law cases — as well as an appellate lawyer, and asset and judgment recovery specialist.​

Benton is admitted to practice in the state of Texas and the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas, and has served clients in the Federal Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Texas, Texas Appellate Courts, State Office of Administrative Hearings for various administrative law issues, and belongs to multiple sections of the State Bar of Texas serving commercial, technological, and estate planning interests. Benton’s extensive experience resolving business disputes includes complaints involving securities fraud, FINRA and SEC violations, agricultural and agistment agreements, speculative commodities hedging by national brokerage firms, international aviation claims, warranty and licensing rights, construction defects, shareholder and business interests, and automotive-mechanics in commercial transport arrangements. Benton’s background in family and probate law includes guardianship and heirship proceedings, will contests, trust and estate administration, CPS claims, actions under multi-jurisdictional compacts like the UCCJEA, termination and adoption suits, and divorce and child custody cases.

She is the team cheerleader, motivator, and fashionista, and as bearer of bling, she is definitely Watson Legal, P.C.’s leading expert in client attraction.
