Bakhtawar “Becky” Hafiz

Becky represents clients in a variety of civil litigation matters, including environmental torts, oil and gas, sexual abuse, personal injury, class actions and complex commercial litigation under the Anti-Terrorism Act, False Claims Act, and other state and federal laws. 

Before joining Nix Patterson, Becky was an Assistant District Attorney in Denton County, Texas, where she handled countless hearings and multiple bench and jury trials, with great success. In that capacity, she effectively prosecuted cases from inception until final adjudication, including screening incoming cases, working closely with law enforcement and victims, negotiating plea agreements with defense attorneys, and managing the court docket.

Becky graduated from the University of Oklahoma College of Law where she was a member of three national moot court competition teams, winning a national championship at the Federal Bar Association Moot Court Competition in 2019. Her exceptional written and oral advocacy led to her induction into the national Order of Barristers. Becky was also honored to receive the David Swank Professionalism Award for leading the school’s transition of its entire 1L moot court program from in-person to online at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Before attending law school, Becky pursued a career as a high-school English teacher, which allowed her to share her passion of working with young members of the community. Becky continues to share her knowledge with students at OU Law, now serving as an alumni coach to both moot court and mock trial competition teams.
