Attorney Profile

A founding member of Rush & Gransee, L.C., attorney Robert L. Rush devotes his practice to individuals who have been harmed by drivers, doctors and corporations that have harmed individuals and their families by causing automobile wrecks, 18-wheeler crashes, surgical mistakes and birth injuries, and other forms of serious personal injury and loss.

For over 25 years, Mr. Rush has represented clients and litigated cases in a wide variety of practice areas, including medical malpractice, 18-Wheeler trucking cases, products liability, car and truck wrecks and catastrophic injury cases. Mr. Rush handles cases throughout Texas and has extensive litigation experience in the Rio Grande Valley.  In addition to the honor of being named a Texas SuperLawyer for the past 7 years, he has been voted by his peers and listed as one of San Antonio's Best Lawyers every year from 2005-present in the annual legal poll conducted by the monthly magazine "Scene in S.A." He was identified as one of San Antonio's best lawyers in personal injury and medical malpractice law.

Our firm understands the devastation an injury or death to a family member can create, and we treat our clients with compassion while helping them through the difficulty of making the person or company responsible for the loss, accept and be held accountable for their actions.  Mr. Rush has always practiced the motto: our clients are people, not file numbers.  First and foremost, we will treat you respectfully and with dignity.  Wrongdoers too often deny and attempt to avoid responsibility; the only way to compensate our clients for the harms and losses they have suffered is to demand accountability with swift, zealous and aggressive representation on our client's behalf.

Married for 28 years to Elizabeth Barrera Rush, the father of 2 - Bobby, 20, and Elise, 24, Mr. Rush and his family are avid hikers, backpackers and travelers.
