Biography

Ken has more than 30 years of litigation experience across the State of Texas and nationally. He has tried a large number of cases before juries, judges and arbitration panels on a wide variety of business disputes (e.g., breach of contract, covenants not to compete, professional negligence, business dissolutions, trade secret misappropriation, real estate, banking, business torts, employment discharge, insurance, and deceptive trade practices), as well as personal injury cases involving claims for premises and products liability, and general negligence. He also has handled and argued dozens of grievance claims for the firm’s lawyer-clients. In addition to his Texas license, Ken is admitted to practice in all federal district courts in Texas, as well as the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit and the United States Supreme Court. Ken also has handled and argued appeals successfully in both state and federal court. In fact, several years ago, he was one of the lawyers primarily involved in a successful appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, which reversed a Fifth Circuit ruling.

Ken has extensive experience in handling select commercial cases on a contingency fee basis, and has tried and settled cases involving dozens of millions of dollars in recoveries for clients. Ken has been recognized as a “Texas Super Lawyer” in the Texas Monthly publication, and also has been honored as one of “Houston’s Top Lawyers” by H Magazine.
