About Me

Paul Colley, Jr. was first licensed to practice law in Texas in 1981. He has focused his entire career on personal injury trial law and has literally handled thousands of cases over the year. He represents injured Texans in a wide range of cases to include: car accident cases; trucking accident cases; negligence, medical malpractice, products liability, contruction accidents, oil field accidents, and many others. He has recovered millions of dollars for his clients. 


 


Mr. Colley typically handles cases of this type on a 'contingent fee' basis, which means that the client pays nothing unless he makes recovery for them. 


 


Mr. Colley is recognized by his peers as an 'AV' Rated lawyer in Martindale-Hubbell's national legal directory. He has also been inducted into the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA), which admits ONLY lawyers who have proven themselves to be among the top attorneys in the country with respect to trial experience and ability. 


 


Mr. Colley is ready to put his years of experience to work for you.
