Thomas Jay Urquidez

About me

Big Firm Trained – Small Firm Effectiveness.  Prior to starting my own firm, I practiced at Akin Gump Straus Hauer & Feld, LLP an international law firm with over 1,000 lawyers and offices worldwide. I bring the skill and training of a big firm attorney with the small firm effectiveness that clients need. I'm passionate about aggressively protecting the rights and interest of individuals, companies, and entrepreneurs in court. My experiences range from commercial litigation, employment law, business law, collections, and all types of civil and trial litigation.
