Although most of the firm's legal work is centered in Texas, we are regularly retained to handle suits and try cases in other jurisdicitons. We have lawyers licensed to practice in Oklahoma, Louisiana, Colorado, Alabama, and Florida. MDJW lawyers have tried cases to verdict in 14 states outside of Texas.
For our insurance clients in particular, MDJW has brought our expertise and trial skills to numerous bad faith cases in other jurisdiction. 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.
Founding partner Chris Martin serves as national trial counsel to one of the nation's largest P & C carriers in defending certain types of institutional bad faith cases.
