Attorney Profile

Attorney Michael L. Phifer is the founder and owner of the Phifer Law Firm in Houston, Texas. Representing the rights and needs of plaintiff injury clients throughout the greater Houston metro region and all across the state, Mr. Phifer focuses his practice on personal injury and wrongful death claims arising from car and truck accidents, defective products, automobile and tire defects, medical malpractice, and other preventable tragedies.

Board certified as a personal injury trial specialist by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and possessing more than 35 years of legal experience, Mr. Phifer has achieved notable success advocating on behalf of innocent accident victims and their families. Throughout the course of his career, he has secured millions of dollars in settlements and awards for those he has served, and he led an effort among Texas lawyers to bring suit against two major tire and automobile manufacturers for the injuries and deaths their defective products caused.

An underlying reason for Mr. Phifer's success in personal injury claims comes from his experience as a corporate defense attorney. For years, he defended the rights and interests of insurance providers and major third-party commercial entities with the tortious claims against them, which enables him to better sympathize with and support his plaintiff clients in their attempts at achieving justice.

A 1979 graduate of Vanderbilt University, Mr. Phifer returned to his alma mater and obtained his Juris Doctor from Vanderbilt University Law School in 1983. The State Bar of Texas admitted him to practice that same year, and he is also admitted to practice before all U.S. District Courts in the state as well as before the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit and the U.S. Supreme Court.

Recognized for his professionalism and service, Mr. Phifer earned inclusion by The Best Lawyers in America© for commercial litigation, and he has received numerous other awards and honors as well. Widely regarded as a leader in his field, he has served on the adjunct legal faculty at Vanderbilt University Law School, and he has conducted many continuing legal education seminars across his region.

Committed to his local community as well, Mr. Phifer routinely volunteers his time and services for those less fortunate throughout his area, including pro bono work with both the Houston Bar Association and the Houston Trial Lawyers Association.
