After graduation, at which he was elected to the Order of the Coif, Mr. Pinkerton spent two years at a plaintiff's personal injury law firm before founding his current firm in 2006. Admitted to practice in Texas, he is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Courts for the Eastern and Southern Districts of Texas.
