Attorney Profile

The founder of The Payne Firm, Jason E. Payne focuses his practice primarily on personal injury and wrongful death litigation, and he has been certified as a specialist in personal injury trial law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Based in Houston, he is admitted to practice before all Texas and New York state courts, and he has also been admitted to practice before the U.S. District Courts for the Eastern and Southern Districts of Texas, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit, and the Supreme Court of the United States.

Mr. Payne provides representation to area residents who have been harmed by the negligence or recklessness of other persons or entities. The types of cases that he has handled in this area of the law have arisen out of incidents involving truck and other motor vehicle crashes, aviation accidents, toxic torts, and defective drugs and medical devices, and he has been able to obtain many sizable negotiated settlements and jury awards on behalf of his plaintiff clients. In addition to his negligence practice, Mr. Payne has extensive experience in commercial litigation, including interference with contractual relations and other types of business torts.

As an undergraduate, Mr. Payne attended the University of Houston, where he majored in political science and received a Bachelor of Science in 1999. Remaining on campus, he pursued his legal education at the University of Houston Law Center, and he was a member of the school's Mock Trial Team before being awarded his Juris Doctor in 2002. After he graduated, Mr. Payne was an associate at a Houston civil litigation firm before opening his practice in 2004. He also holds a Master of Business Administration from Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management.
