Attorney Profile

John C. Duff joined Hilliard Martinez Gonzales LLP in September 2016, shortly after he graduated from law school. He works out of the firm’s office in Corpus Christi, Texas, and he focuses his practice exclusively on personal injury and wrongful death litigation, representing clients throughout the greater metropolitan area and other parts of the state.

As an undergraduate, Mr. Duff attended Texas A&M University-Commerce, where he was a Presidential Scholar and majored in political science and government before receiving a Bachelor of Arts in 2013. He, then, pursued his legal education at St. Mary’s University School of Law in San Antonio, and he participated in mock trial activities, including being a member of the team that won the William W. Daniel National Mock Trial Competition, before being awarded his Juris Doctor in 2016. Mr. Duff has been admitted to practice before all Texas state courts since that year.

Mr. Duff provides aggressive advocacy on behalf of people who have been harmed as the direct result of the negligence of other persons or entities. The types of cases that he has worked on, since joining the firm, have included premises liability, crashes involving trucks, cars, motorcycles, and other motor vehicles, oil field accidents, and defective automotive products. Mr. Duff has been able to recover significant amounts of compensation for his clients through jury awards after lengthy trials as well as through his negotiation of favorable settlement agreements with defendants and their liability insurance providers. In order to stay abreast of current developments in his field of practice and to forge connections with fellow attorneys, he is a member of several professional organizations.
