Attorney Jennifer O’Brien Stogner serves of counsel with Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Agosto, Aziz & Stogner law firm in Houston, Texas. A top-rated trial attorney with more than 13 years of legal experience, Mrs. Stogner devotes her practice to advocating on behalf of individuals and families throughout Houston and all across the state who have suffered injuries or loss as a result of someone else's negligence.

Over the course of her legal career, Mrs. Stogner has represented both plaintiff and defendant clients alike with their serious and pressing legal challenges; however, she currently focuses solely on assisting accident victims and their families who are suffering needlessly through no fault of their own.

Along with handling all types of personal injury and wrongful death claims arising from motor vehicle accidents and other preventable tragedies, Mrs. Stogner has extensive experience handling claims following gas explosions and industrial accidents, and she honed her legal skills directly out of law school working on the BP Texas City explosion cases. She also maintains a particular focus on product liability cases involving automobile and tire defects.

From her efforts as a personal injury advocate, Mrs. Stogner has recovered millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts for her plaintiff clients, and she has gained a reputation for her in-depth legal knowledge and aggressive approach to helping her clients obtain the maximum amount of compensation they deserve. Recognized for her professionalism and service, she has earned many top rankings and endorsements from her peers along with numerous testimonials and referrals from her satisfied clients.

A 2002 graduate of Texas A&M University, Corpus Christi, with degrees in finance and accounting, Mrs. Stogner obtained her Juris Doctor from the South Texas College of Law Houston in 2006. A dean's list scholar in law school, she earned a nomination to join the prestigious Order of Barristers, and she received the Dean's Outstanding Student Advocate award in her final year.  As an advocate, she was a member of the 2006 ATLA National Championship Mock Trial team. 

A leader in her legal community, Mrs. Stogner serves on the board of directors of the Houston Trial Lawyers Association.  She is also on the board of directors of the South Texas College of Law Houston Alumni Association, and the chair of the Development Committee.  She is also a member of the Houston Bar Association, and she supports her local community through her involvement with the Monarch Oaks Civic Association and the Monarch Oaks Moms Club.  When she is not working, she likes to spend time with her husband and three (3) children, especially playing soccer, baseball, basketball, or anything competitive.  She also likes to read, bake, and swim.
