About me

Philip “Brad” Altman has been practicing law for 19 years. He has devoted his entire career to  representing clients who have undergone serious injuries and death caused by the actions of other persons or corporations. Through tenacious preparation, commitment to his clients, commitment to the details, and zealous advocacy in the courtroom, Brad has recovered millions of dollars for his clients through settlements and verdicts.


He is licensed to practice law in all State Courts in Texas and Oklahoma, as well as in the U.S. Federal Courts of the Northern and Western Districts of Texas. For many years Brad has been named a "Super Lawyer- Rising Star" by Texas Monthly. 


In 2014, Brad was invited to become a Fellow of the Texas Bar Foundation. Election to the Fellows is one of the highest honors that can be bestowed upon a member of the State Bar of Texas. Nomination is based on outstanding contributions to the legal profession as well as a commitment to the community. Each year, only 1/3 of 1% of Texas Attorneys are invited to become Fellows of the Texas Bar Foundation.


A graduate of Baylor University, Brad is an avid Bears fan. Following graduation, he completed law school in Houston at South Texas College of Law before coming to Altman Legal Group in 1996.

  • Stacy Lori Kosub

    When my cousin asked who she should go to for a wrongful death lawsuit, I referred her to Brad Altman. I believe that when you are placing your life, your future and your financial security into the hands of an attorney, you want to be sure that your lawyer is someone that you would trust with your own family. Brad's professionalism, experience and advocacy in the courtroom is second to none.
