John is a passionate advocate and has not only tried many lawsuits to judge and jury, but has also handled high stakes arbitrations. He has also represented clients successfully in class certification proceedings and in numerous injunction hearings. John has appellate experience too, briefing and arguing cases to the higher state and federal courts, and has represented clients in countless alternative dispute resolution proceedings. He is certified as a specialist in the separate legal fields of civil trial law and personal injury trial law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
Notwithstanding his zeal for advocacy, his overarching goal in each representation is to provide great service and wise and trustworthy counsel in order to obtain the result the client needs and desires—whether that result occurs after a trial or arbitration or pre-trial, or even pre-filing. In addition to his litigation practice, he has devoted considerable time and effort to human rights causes, such as the representation of human trafficking victims and children seeking asylum.
