Got a passion to protect the rights of victims? You’ll fit right in at this Dallas law firm with a reputation for solely protecting individuals in disease and toxic substance cases. They are looking for only the best and the brightest to go after the World's polluters. This could be you! One thing we like about this firm is that associates working here do get a lot of deposition experience and some junior associates have even had the opportunity to second and third chair trials recently. We believe the work that this firm does is very important, and those who succeed at a high level at this firm have the opportunity to make incomes which are rivaled by very few firms in the World. This is Texas tort litigation at its finest. There are many firms one could chose to work for if you are a litigator; however, if you are interested in being a real litigator who actually fights battles--and we mean battles--this may be the firm for you.
