Attorney Profile

As a founding partner at Simon - O’Rourke, PC, Sean E. O’Rourke focuses his practice on personal injury claims as well as civil and business litigation issues. He represents people in the Houston, Texas, area, in matters such as transportation and maritime law.

Mr. O’Rourke is a true advocate for people who have suffered a personal injury. His father was a longshoreman, so he has an especially keen insight into the maritime industry. In fact, he has represented more than 100 maritime workers in injury and wrongful death claims. Beyond that, he has spent more than a decade constructing arguments on behalf of people who are going through an extremely difficult time, physically and financially. A highly skilled litigator, Mr. O’Rourke does not hesitate to go to court in order to secure the maximum compensation for a client.

After earning an undergraduate degree in political science from Texas State University, Mr. O’Rourke went on to receive a Juris Doctor from the Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law. After being admitted to practice in the state of Texas, he was admitted to practice before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit and the U.S. District Courts for the Southern, Eastern and Northern Districts of Texas.

Whether in the courtroom or in settlement conversations, Mr. O’Rourke is unwavering in his pursuit of every dollar to which a client is entitled. For this relentless approach, he has earned membership to the Million Dollar Advocates Forum; the National Association of Distinguished Counsel has listed him in its Nation’s Top One Percent; and one of his cases was featured in Texas Lawyer’s Verdicts Hall of Fame.

Mr. O’Rourke is a member of the State Bar of Texas, the Houston County Bar Association and the Galveston County Bar Association.
