A Partner at The Carlson Law Firm, Dominic Braus focuses his practice exclusively on plaintiff's personal injury and wrongful death litigation. Based in the firm's Waco office, he provides representation to clients throughout the state of Texas who have been harmed by the negligence of other parties. The types of cases that Mr. Braus has been involved in have included motor vehicle crashes, defective products, premises liability and work site accidents. His interest in this type of practice stems from his exposure to negligence litigation as a result of his being injured in a bonfire collapse at his college alma mater. His successful representation of his clients has resulted in his receipt of an "Excellent" peer review rating through Avvo.

Mr. Braus attended Texas A&M University as an undergraduate and received a Bachelor of Science in agricultural business in 2003. After working for an area bank, he decided to pursue a legal career and enrolled at Baylor Law School. While studying abroad at Paris-Sorbonne University, Mr. Braus interned at a Paris law firm. He also clerked for the 54th District Court in Waco before being awarded his Juris Doctor in 2009.

After graduating from law school, Mr. Braus joined a Beaumont personal injury law firm, where he obtained several sizable settlements and jury verdicts on behalf of his plaintiff clients, including a $500,000 settlement in a toxic exposure case. He has been with The Carlson Law Firm since March 2013 and since that time he has obtained significant trial experience. Admitted to practice in Texas, Mr. Braus is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Courts for the Southern, Eastern and Western Districts of Texas.
