Bruce Wilkin has tried cases to jury verdicts and to the bench as the first-chair lawyer, argued before Texas courts of appeal, and served as the lead lawyer before the Texas Supreme Court in commercial, energy, environmental, and first party insurance disputes.

Advocate: Handling cases on both sides of the docket, Bruce’s achievements include obtaining a seven-figure judgment on the plaintiff side, and many take-nothing judgments on the defense side. The Texas Supreme Court has quoted Bruce’s cross-examination of an opposing expert, holding that the expert’s trial testimony was legally insufficient, and rendering a take-nothing judgment in favor of Bruce’s client.

Author: Bruce is an author of a major treatise on business and commercial litigation in federal courts, which was described in the Texas Bar Journal as a “monumental achievement” by “the minds of some of the most well-established thought leaders in today’s legal community” and in the New York Law Journal as: “There is nothing like it. It is the single most useful tool for the federal litigator in existence, except possibly the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.” He is also published in the areas of energy litigation, evidentiary issues at trial, and first-party insurance disputes.

Acknowledgments: Among his peers, Bruce has been voted a Rising Star (Thomson Reuters), in Texas Super Lawyers Magazine, and one of Houston’s Top Lawyers in H Texas.

Advisor: Due to his successes in the courtroom, clients often seek Bruce’s advice outside of it. His practice also includes providing pre-dispute guidance in commercial disputes, coverage analysis and advice for insurers, and general business counseling for oilfield services companies.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
