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.

I endorse this lawyer. I have known Paul Colley for more than 30 years. We practiced in the same town for approximately 20 of those years and I handled several cases as the opposing lawyer. We tried several cases against each other to a jury verdict. Paul is one of the finest trial lawyers I know. He knows the law, is always well-prepared and makes outstanding presentations to the jury. If a family member or good friend had a personal injury case and needed a lawyer to represent them, I would not hesitate to refer them to Paul. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
