About me

Jeronimo Valdez is an accomplished trial lawyer and Founder & Managing Partner of Valdez│Washington LLP where he represents clients throughout the country in a broad range of matters including life-altering personal injury, complex contract disputes, non-compete litigation, complex business torts, and other business-related problems. He has successfully tried numerous cases to verdict resulting in multiple unanimous defense verdicts for his clients and multi-million dollar awards for his side. Mr. Valdez's successes have earned him recognition by his peers for inclusion/recognition in, among other things: The Best Lawyers in America©; Texas Super Lawyers "Rising Stars"; The National Trial Lawyers Top 100 Attorneys; Nation's Top 1 Percent; The National Advocates Top 100 Attorneys; and The National Trial Lawyers Top 40 Under 40.

In addition to his extensive trial experience, Mr. Valdez also serves as an invaluable business advisor to many of DFW’s leading entrepreneurs and business organizations. He has served as Vice President & General Counsel of an international company and currently serves as outside general counsel to leading businesses and local chambers of commerce. He began his legal career at one of the largest and most respected law firms in the U.S., but he now operates his own Law Firm, where he provides individuals and small businesses with the same quality services, but more efficiently and more affordably. As a result of his unique business model, the Greater Dallas Hispanic Chamber awarded him the prestigious Quality & Excellence in Entrepreneurship Award. In addition, The Dallas Business Journal has also recognized him in its prestigious “40 under 40" list as "one of top 40 businessmen in North Texas under the age of 40," and later awarded him the Minority Business Leader Award, which "honors outstanding minority business professionals whose work is having a major impact on the local business community."
