Office Contacts

Opened in 1990, Phelps Dunbar’s Houston office consists of attorneys with experience in a wide range of legal issues. Attorneys in Houston handle a broad range of litigation and counseling matters, as well as admiralty, employment, commercial litigation, insurance and reinsurance, and tort litigation. Our practices are well aligned with the oil, gas, finance and trade industries of the region.

The Houston litigation team has years of experience handling complex personal injury claims arising from oil and gas, admiralty and maritime, railroad, construction and contract matters. These attorneys have handled class action litigation, products liability and commercial insurance subrogation claims and regularly counsel insurance clients on policy language and coverage issues. Working closely with corporate executives and legal counsel, insurance representatives, risk managers and governmental officials, our Houston attorneys represent a broad array of local, regional, national and international corporations.

The office relocated to One Allen Center in January 2013.
