I have been married for 43 years have 3 grown children and 4 grandchildren.  I live in Friendswood, Tx. and  have  my  law office at the same location on  North Memorial Way since 1970.  I enjoy walking in Memorial Park, fishing, gardening, and spending time at our family retreat in the Texas Hill Country feeding deer, birds, and other wildlife. But the best time I have is spending time with my grandchildren. Additionally I am  a long time resident of the Houston area having graduated from Bellaire High School in 1960.  I really enjoy helping people with their legal problems and taking on the giant corporations for ordinary people.

Best Attorney in the World
Our Civic club retained Don Maierson to represent us against Lyondell, Arco, and Destec (3 huge chemical companies) . These companies had many attorneys and an unlimited budget, and Don prevailed by using his wits and superior intellect. He doesn't know how to give up, and he refuses to be intimidated. You just can't beat his dedication to his clients welfare either. I want him to represent me when I meet St.Peter at the Pearly Gates. Don also helped me with a fender bender, and he won that, Too.

Maierson The Miracle Man
We (over 300 residents) needed a tough attorney to tackle a tough case. Mr. Maierson's educational back ground and professional knowledge Won us two different rounds. Round 1- State Official Admitting The Importance Of Our Case. Round 2- Achieving the Impossible ( so I thought ) Getting Settlement Funds From Major Refinery Companies for each of his clients. Finding a attorney will not be a phrase that will ever come out of my mouth. But one that will is I Highly Recommend Mr. Donald Maierson . He Proved Himself To All Of Us, He's Our "Maierson The Miracle Man"

Finding a remarkable lawyer
In today's times, a lot of people find it difficult to reach out to a new lawyer with their personal information, not knowing if they will produce the results that they need. This man has integrity and is very professional in his dealings with you. He keeps your information private, returns all your calls promptly and produces the results that you need. I am very pleased with the results that he produced for me and I would highly recommend that you visit with him and see for yourself his professionism. It was a priviledge working with him.
