When victims of personal injury incidents hire the right attorney, they can rest assured that they have a knowledgeable, steadfast source of support in their corner. As a founding partner of Wyatt Law Firm, Ltd., Paula J. Wyatt serves as that advocate for people in San Antonio and across the state of Texas. She skillfully represents clients through issues such as wrongful death, burn injuries and products liability.

Ms. Wyatt's education established a foundation for her career. She graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in history from Texas A&M University in 1981. She went on to receive a Juris Doctor from the University of Houston Law Center in 1984.

Fast forward to today, where Ms. Wyatt puts her decades of experience to use both in and out of the courtroom. When the benefit would be greater for her clients, she strives to reach efficient solutions through settlements. However, she recognizes that sometimes the only way to secure justice is to go to trial, which Ms. Wyatt has done with integrity and success in numerous cases.

Throughout her career, Ms. Wyatt has secured landmark results in high-profile cases. For her accomplishments, she has been listed in The National Trial Lawyers: Top 100; she holds the highest peer review rating possible of AV Preeminent* from Martindale-Hubbell; she has an Avvo "Superb" rating; and she is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum.

Her continued achievement is due in part to her ability to network with peers through memberships with the American Bar Association, the Corpus Christi Bar Association, the San Antonio Bar Association, the Texas Trial Lawyers Association and the American Association for Justice. Ms. Wyatt also shares her legal experience with others through lectures and published works.
