Brad K. Howell is a trial lawyer with extensive experience in the areas of products liability, catastrophic personal injury, statutory indemnity, toxic tort, and commercial litigation. Mr. Howell has handled litigation in state and federal courts throughout Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, Montana, Florida, West Virginia, and New Jersey.
Mr. Howell has dedicated his career to litigation. During his last year in law school, he was selected to chair the South Texas College of Law Board of Advocates, which facilitates the school’s advocacy training and trial competitions. To date, his law school has won more than twice as many national advocacy competitions as any other law school in the country. After graduating from law school in 1999, Mr. Howell joined an established trial firm in downtown Houston. Only weeks after earning his law license, Mr. Howell took his first case to trial and won a favorable verdict for his client.
Not even a full year into his practice, he joined a distinguished trial practice, which afforded him an opportunity to further sharpen his skills. During that year, he was on a team that tried high-stakes, personal injury cases in Kansas, Colorado, and Texas. One case involved a demand for $130 million; however, after a three-week trial and a full day of deliberations, the jury returned a verdict in favor of Mr. Howell’s client — a Fortune 50 multinational corporation.
Mr. Howell continued winning many more victories in the courtroom before he was hired as a partner at one of the largest law firms in the country. Within weeks of joining that firm, he was back in the courtroom, trying a catastrophic injury products liability lawsuit. After a two-week trial, the jury returned a unanimous verdict in favor of his client. Over the eight years that followed, he served as trial counsel for one of the world’s largest heavy equipment manufacturers, among other large national and international clients. At MehaffyWeber, Mr. Howell continues to deliver big wins for clients and has gained a reputation for his depth of knowledge and courtroom experience.
