With the addition of Thomas Mayo, the Byrd Law Firm has strengthened its team of trial lawyers greatly.
Houston, Texas (PRWEB) May 19, 2011
The Byrd Law Firm, a legal firm in Houston, Texas, has announced the addition of Attorney Thomas C. Mayo to its Texas-based practice. Mayo, who brings with him 10 years of experience as a trial lawyer, has been recognized by the publication, Texas Super Lawyers. He was the recipient of the Texas Super Lawyers’ “Rising Star” award for four years consecutively. Recognition as a “Rising Star” is an honor garnered by a mere 2.5% of the attorneys in the state of Texas. Mayo has worked extensively in complex litigation, insurance and personal injury litigation and governmental agency representation.
“With the addition of Thomas Mayo,” said Jason Byrd, founder of the firm, “The Byrd Law Firm has strengthened its team of trial lawyers greatly.” Mayo is pleased to join a dynamic group of result driven attorneys.
Byrd added that Mayo most recently practiced at Germer Gertz, a legal firm involved in multiple disciplines of practice. During his tenure there, Mayo managed large dockets involving nationwide litigation as well as trying many cases to verdict. The Byrd Law Firm handles cases involving pharmaceutical litigation involving the dangerous side effects of certain drugs. These types of cases require facing large drug companies and their highly equipped legal teams.
The Byrd Law Firm maintains offices in both Houston and Beaumont, Texas. Founded in 2005, the firm now has four attorneys to handle the case loads, each bringing their clients a level of experience and personal attention that Byrd expects will allow the practice to flourish further. Said Byrd, the firm is, “…big enough to handle the most complex of matters and still small enough to be nimble and responsive.” He pointed out that this is a vital characteristic for any firm for which 95% of the work is performed on contingency.
Byrd explained his belief that working on a contingency basis (whether for a personal injury lawsuit or another type of case) allows clients to understand that the firm is vested in their case; the firm doesn’t get paid unless its clients get paid. This type of working relationship is an overall demonstration of good faith. It allows the clients to see that there is someone working for their rights, and that someone believes in their case. And it allows them to see that there is a level, legal playing field to pursue the damages to which they are entitled.
