Serving Injured Parties Five, and Only Five, at a Time

When people hire personal injury attorney Patrick McGroder, they know they’re getting his full attention

There are attorneys who want as big a book of business as possible. But not personal injury attorney Patrick McGroder. He’s selective. He only takes five cases at a time. That way, he can go at them the only way he knows how—with everything he’s got. “I’m certainly not going to outthink anyone, but no one can outwork me,” he says. “And I enjoy working.” He certainly does—for almost three decades, he has worked 14-hour days, six days a week. “My work is my hobby, it’s my …

A Believer in Second Chances

Nicole DeBorde knows the other side—she was on it for almost a decade

In 2002, after eight years as an assistant district attorney with Harris County, Nicole DeBorde had an intimate knowledge of the tricks of the trade. Now that she has her own criminal defense practice, she uses this knowledge to stay one step ahead of her opponents. The decision to leave the DA’s office was hard for DeBorde, but it’s a change she’s glad she made. “I liked what I was doing, but it was time to move on and to grow a little bit. When I actually got out, I loved it,” she …

At Berry Appleman & Leiden, technology isn’t just a luxury; it’s a central part of their service. They’ve used it to create a Web-accessible database that’s changed the practice of corporate immigration law. Paige Taylor and Jeremy Fudge, two partners at the firm, are instrumental in the continuing development of the database.

Emmy, ZZ Top and Me

Brooks Taylor first became interested in law in the mid-1980s when the company he worked for, Vari-Lite, was sued for patent infringement. “Out of the group of engineers in the company I seemed to have the best aptitude for reading and understanding patents,” he says. His involvement in the lawsuit sparked his interest in intellectual property, and eventually he became the company’s IP manager. In 2001 he left Vari-Lite and worked as a technical patent adviser at Hughes & Luce, now …

How a rare disease gave Musa Eubanks perspective

Underneath his graduation cap and gown, Musa Eubanks wore a hospital gown; and instead of walking to the podium with fellow students to receive his law degree, he sat in a hospital bed barely able to walk across the room. It was late spring 1996. For months Eubanks had endured unexplained health problems that eventually became too much to bear. “Around January or February I started getting headaches and fevers,” he says. The illness caused cramping and made walking difficult, but doctors …
