About Dean

Learn Dean’s areas of practice.

I am relentless in fighting for justice for my clients that have been injured or killed by the wrongful conduct of others. I have faced off against some of the largest corporations in the country and won. I bring a unique approach to litigation that helps me see solutions where other lawyers see problems. I often take on and turn around legal cases that have often been turned down by other lawyers. Over my career, I’ve found that applying a creative, outside-the-box approach to these complex legal issues makes all the difference for my clients.

My practice is focused on catastrophic injury and wrongful death litigation across the country that arises from negligence, gross negligence, defective products, corporate greed, premises liability, malpractice, and toxic torts.

I began my legal career defending companies that were sued for causing injuries. After two years, I saw first-hand the greed and dishonesty of big corporations and insurance companies, and I switched sides to only represent people that were injured and needed a voice.


I am honored to have been chosen by my peers to receive many awards and accolades, including:

One of the Best Lawyer in Dallas by D Magazine (2009-2019)

One of the Top 100 Lawyers in Texas by SuperLawyer Magazine (2018)

Mr. Milo Hernandez
On January of 2017, I was involved in a vehicle incident while driving in San Antonio Texas. My vehicle had the right of way and a green light when another vehicle turned into my path, the driver ran a red light. This was a severe accident with injury to my wife and myself. The insurance was very slow to react and I had to hire Dean Gresham to facilitate on our behalf. We were very satisfied with his friendliness, professionalism and knowledge with Texas law. He was able to address all our concerns and get restitution for our injuries and loss of vehicle.

Compassionate attorney that gets results
When tragedy struck our family, we did not know who to turn to or who to trust. Thank God we found Dean Gresham and hired him to represent our family in a complex personal injury case. Dean not only was there for us to guide us, but truly cares so much for his clients. While Dean is extremely aggressive in the court room, we found him to be so kind and caring during the entire 2 year process. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dean and how much he has helped our family through successfully resolving the lawsuit. If tragedy strikes your family, I highly recommend hiring Dean to represent you and your family.

Thank you Dean!
Dean Gresham represented our adopted daughter in a complex personal injury case. Dean is honest, compassionate, responsive, and communicative. He fought relentlessly on our daughter’s behalf, leaving no stone unturned. He listened to every detail and truly cared about our emotional well-being during a trying time. We are grateful that Dean was able to resolve our daughter’s case, and for the care he provided during an arduous process. Dean Gresham is “One In A Million”. He will always hold a huge place in my heart for being a voice for the voiceless.

Excellent Lawyer
Dean and Joel represented me in a very complicated Qui Tam (False Claims Act) matter relating to the inappropriate participation of a local hospital in the Medicaid Upper Payment Limit program in Texas. The case was filed in 2005 under seal with the United States Department of Justice having the first opportunity to review and intervene to take the lead in the case if they desired. When the government declined to intervene in 2007, Dean hit the ground running. He was very pro-active, aggressive and creative. Just the kind of attorney you want on your side. I chose the firm of Fineberg:Gresham because of their successful history with major medical malpractice cases. They clearly cared about me, their client, and demonstrated the highest standards of ethics, tenacity and legal expertise.
