We take a holistic approach to understanding your unique situation and goals. Our objective counsel helps you make informed decisions to achieve the best possible outcome.
Although most of the firm's legal work is in Texas, we are regularly retained to handle suits, try cases, and appear in appellate courts in other jurisdictions. We have lawyers also licensed to practice in Oklahoma, Louisiana, Colorado, South Carolina, Alabama, Florida, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Michigan and New York. MDJW lawyers have handled cases in 38 different states and tried cases to verdict in 14 states besides Texas.
Founding partner Chris Martin also serves as national trial counsel to one of the nation's largest P & C carriers in defending certain types of institutional bad faith cases.
For our insurance clients in particular, we have brought our expertise and trial skills to numerous bad faith cases in other jurisdictions. We were on the Carrier Steering Committee for the Hurricane Katrina Insurance Umbrella dealing with thousands of cases in Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi. We were asked to handle numerous cases in other states arising out of the Florida hurricanes of 2004 (Charlie, Frances, Ivan, and Jeanne), as well as Hurricanes Wilma and Dennis. We were lead counsel in many thousands of cases arising out of Hurricanes Ike, Rita & Harvey.
