Growing up along the border as the youngest of nine children, Lulu’s commitment to civil rights was instilled by her father, an attorney and one of the founding members of the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC). But she also saw how little would be accomplished were it not for the behind the scenes work of strong women like her mother.
Thanks to her parents’ strong belief in education, Lulu moved to Austin to study at the University of Texas, where she also graduated from law school. She began her career in the state legislature working for Rep. Irma Rangel, a pioneer who rose to serve as Chair of the Higher Education Committee. Lulu continued her career in public service working as Director of Legislative Programs for the State Bar of Texas, and Assistant Director for Alternative Fuels Policy and Legislation/Governmental Affairs at the Texas Railroad Commission, before joining her husband, Scott, as partner in their law firm, Hendler Flores Law, PLLC.
Recognized for both her work as a lawyer and an agent for social change, Lulu was named “National Latina Lawyer of the Year” in 2010 by the Hispanic National Bar Association and was included in the City of Austin Women’s Hall of Fame for her leadership, advocacy, and mentoring. Most recently, she was named the 2020 Distinguished Lawyer of the Year by the Austin Bar Association. An active volunteer, Lulu continues to support a variety of causes, including serving as a member of the Advisory Committee of the University of Texas Center for Women and Gender Studies.
Today, Lulu is bringing her passion for social justice to the state legislature to push back against S.B. 8 and Greg Abbott’s attack on reproductive freedoms, stand up for the dignity of all Texans, and promote investments in health care and education that help ensure every Texan has the chance to pursue their full potential.
