For the past 25 years, I have sought out the truth on behalf of my clients and have conveyed that truth respectfully to jurors to aid them in reaching just verdicts. My faith in the civil jury system is based on decades of experience working with jurors, most of whom typically reach the right conclusions if an attorney spends the time and effort necessary to be prepared on the law and the facts. Often, this requires working harder than opposing counsel, but that’s how the attorneys at Chamblee, Ryan, Kershaw & Anderson, P.C., pursue justice for our clients.
Beyond trial preparation, attorneys must also have a thorough understanding of people and the prejudices that they might carry into the jury box. Helping jurors look beyond those biases also is crucial in obtaining truly impartial verdicts.
Once clients share this understanding of the legal system, their fears of judges, juries and courtrooms are abated. They can face the legal process confidently knowing that if the truth is on their side, then their case will prevail the vast majority of the time.
Chamblee, Ryan, Kershaw & Anderson, P.C., prides itself on its ability to successfully defend its clients, especially in difficult and complex cases.
The majority of my legal practice is devoted to general litigation that spans a broad range, from medical malpractice defense to wills and estate planning. I earned my law degree at St. Mary’s University School of Law in San Antonio in 1985, and since graduating, I have spoken at more than 30 legal classes and seminars, on topics ranging from personal injury claims to health care reform.
My peers in the legal community have included me in the Texas Super Lawyers list each year since 2005, and I have earned the highest rating (AV “pre-eminent”) available in the Martindale-Hubbell legal directory. My pro bono efforts include work with the charitable group Many in Need Without Financial Means. I am an active member of The Met Church in Keller, Texas, where I serve as a Youth Minister. I also work as a sponsor, producer or organizer in many Keller, Texas, charity events, including equestrian shows.
My horse, Levi, was named a Reserve Champion in the 2009 Silver Stirrup Awards in the Adult Amateur Hunter class by the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) and the Performance Horse Registry (PHR).
