Attorney Profile

From the complex class action cases to the straightforward small disputes, Colby has assisted clients in obtaining the best results. Colby’s work currently focuses on complex litigation involving construction defects, and personal injury. Colby’s prior experience includes federal and state securities litigation, labor and employment litigation, insurance coverage, and defense of consumer financial service providers. 

A graduate of UT-Austin and the University of Houston Law Center, Colby began his career working on a team that obtained billions of dollars for stockholders who lost money to securities fraud committed by firms all over the United States – including an energy company called Enron.

Rivaling Colby’s passion for justice is his in-depth and intimate knowledge of the strategies and tactics of those attorneys he faces. He spent many years in the trenches defending clients against wrongful injury lawsuits. He successfully defended his corporate clients against suits alleging tens of millions of dollars in damages. Colby learned their tips and tricks and seen their cunning and guile employed against plaintiffs large and small.

When you hire Colby, you are engaging a seasoned attorney who knows exactly what you will be facing on the road to justice. Unlike many of the attorneys at assembly-line firms, there’s no tactic that will catch him off guard. He’s been the corporate hired gun. He’s seen it all before, and he’s not afraid to roll up his sleeves and go toe-to-toe with opposing counsel if that’s what it takes to get you justice.

Today, with well over a decade of success on his record as a civil trial lawyer, Colby has earned the respect of both his clients and his peers. Thanks to this respect, he has also earned a number of honors, including a "Superb" rating from Avvo and an AV Preeminent peer review rating from Martindale-Hubbell. In addition, he is a member of the Texas Bar College.
