Joe Newman Perdue

About Me

Mr. Perdue was honored by Houstonia Magazine when he was included on its 'Top Lawyers' list for 2013.  Mr. Perdue was previously included in Texas Super Lawyers-Rising Stars Edition, in 2010, 2011, and 2012.  [Less than 3 percent of lawyers his age are selected for this honor.]   It was a tremendous honor to make this list for three  straight years.  Visit to see more about Mr. Perdue.

Mr. Perdue focuses his practice on representing individuals and small businesses.  As a business owner, Mr. Perdue understands the burdens placed on you by a legal proceeding.  Often a legal proceeding adds unneeded stress and an unnecessary burden to your life.  A competent attorney can help alleviate the stress and burden of a legal proceeding by gathering the necessary evidence and respresenting your interests in the matter. 

Mr. Perdue will work directly with you to protect your interests. Mr. Perdue will gather the evidence and facts you need for your case.  Unfortunately, the failure to act quickly can result in faded memories, lost documents and/or evidence.  A diligent work up of your case begins early. You have rights that you must protect. Your decision to act is important.

Mr. Perdue has been in involved in business and licensing cases ranging from the complexities of a False Claims Act lawsuit (‘qui tam’) that alleged the defendants participated in a scheme to collect federal health insurance funds under Medicare through fraudulent billing practices to a licensing revocation proceeding with the Texas Department of State Health Services related to an alleged incident of misconduct filed by a discontented client.  

As a litigator, Mr. Perdue has seen some of the worse conduct.  Mr. Perdue worked on cases involving patient neglect and even abuse.  Mr. Perdue has represented injured individuals ranging from a woman that suffers from quadraparesis as a result of negligent care during a posterior cervical laminectomy and fusion to an individual that suffered head trauma after being struck by a careless driver while riding her bicycle training for the MS 150.  Mr. Perdue began his legal career defending large corporations (i.e. TXU Energy and Fluor Corporation) in major plant accidents involving catastrophic injuries to workers.  Mr. Perdue brings his years of experience and background in large and complex matters to the table each time he represents his clients.

Whether your case is big or small, simple or complex, it is your case and its important.   Mr. Perdue is committed to seeing that all individuals are given the same rights and opportunities that are protected by our laws. You have rights that should be protected.   If you have performed your work, your duties you should protect your business and your reputation.  If someone has hurt you or your business or failed in his or her duties you may want to hold them accountable.

Joe Perdue earned his Law Degree (‘J.D.’) from South Texas College of Law. While at South Texas College of Law, Mr. Perdue studied International and Environmental Law at the University of Malta. He was licensed to practice in 2002.  As a life-long Texan and resident of Houston, Mr. Perdue knows the value of community.  Mr. Perdue is proud to be a contributor to local charities and volunteers with Child Advocates as a court appointed advocate to help protect children from abuse and neglect.
