Litigator Mark Lanier has many talents, including a strong work ethic, natural connection with juries, tech savvy, deep faith and a photographic memory. Lanier, who practices plaintiff’s law—class action/mass torts and personal injury—also happens to be a big-time train buff. He talks about the half-scale, narrow-gauge train that runs around his 40-acre property, in homage to his dad, who worked for the Texas & Pacific Railroad. 

Lanier’s story was featured in the 2018 Texas Super Lawyers Magazine.

“I reached a point, in my 40s, where I thought, ‘I’d like to get back into model trains.’ … Since we live on 40 acres, we decided to build a half-scale railroad.”
