Calla Beach Ross, Attorney at Law

Calla is a graduate of Waxahachie High School. While in high school Calla began working for Robin Lane, learning the ins and outs of traffic law, family law, and running a law office. After graduating, Calla attended the University of Texas at Austin, majoring in History, with a minor in Government. While there she was a member of Phi Alpha Theta, National History Honor Society, and Eta Sigma Phi, National Classics Honor Society (for her work in the study of Latin).

Calla then went on to attend the University of Louisville Brandies School of Law. While there she was a member of the Journal of Law and Education and graduated in May of 2016, cum laude.

Calla married Christopher Ross in October of 2017 and they now live in Midlothian with their dog, Stella, who can often be found greeting people at the office.

Practice Areas

A large portion of Calla’s law practice is devoted to family law matters. She has represented clients in obtaining a divorce, child custody issues, and post-divorce modifications. She brings a compassion and fight to her cases that few attorneys can match.
Calla Ross defends those accused of violating Texas traffic laws. With extensive experience, she understands the internal workings of municipal and Justice of the Peace court systems. Her years of traffic defense experience bring a knowledge base few attorneys can offer in the area of traffic ticket defense.
Calla's focus in criminal defense is devoted primarily to Class C Misdemeanors. While most Class C charges are traffic related, the area actually encompasses a wide array of additional charges. For example, minors in possession of alcohol or tobacco are just one of many Class C violations a person can face that are not traffic related. She has a broad range of experience in defending criminal charges that she brings to her cases.
