Fighting for Our Clients Is What We Do!

Jill is a Personal Injury Lawyer in Houston, TX, with 19 years of experience. If you have been injured by the negligence of another, Jill will fight for you and will not quit until the responsible party is held accountable. To recover damages resulting from your injury, such as your pain and suffering, lost wages, disfigurement, or other damages, you often have to prove liability against the negligent party in court. You have to present evidence of your injury, lost wages, and any other damages you have sustained. You need to hire a competent attorney who knows how to deal with the negligent party's insurance companies and their adjusters and lawyers. We do not tire until our client gets a just result. And we do not charge fees or get paid until the client is compensated. 


When you have been injured by the negligence of another party, you need to choose a lawyer who is tough, dependable, and knows the law.  Jill has handled a large number of cases and prepared them for trial and settlement.  Jill is named Top 100 National Trial Lawyers in 2018 and 2019. She has been ranked among top Houston attorneys by Houstonia magazine in 2013, 2014 and 2015. Jill was voted Fellow to the Texas Bar Foundation in 2017, where only a very small percentage of Texas lawyers are invited to become Fellows. She was named Editor-in-Chief of The Houston Lawyer magazine in 2016-2017 and was board member of the Houston Bar Association THL from 2009 until 2017. She received the Houston Bar Association's Outstanding Service Award in 2017. Jill has won cases against the toughest opponents in Texas and the nation.

I Can’t Say Enough about Jill Yaziji and Her Work on My Case
Ms. Jill is beyond all measure a brilliant lawyer. She is an attorney who is both strategic and strongminded. She’s out of the box intelligent and when bad stuff happened to me at an apartment complex, she was willing to fight for me for almost two years until my case settled. I will have to deal with my personal injury following the event for a long time to come, but in a major way, Ms. Jill helped me bring closure to this tragic time in my life. If you want a lawyer who is reliable, determined, and will fight all the way, then she is the one you should hire. Me and my family will always be thankful to Ms. Yaziji and her hard work in my case, and I cannot recommend a more professional, challenging, and brilliant lawyer than her. Mariam K.

Car Accident Injury Case
I had a car accident in June 2017 where my sedan was hit at full speed by a full-size pickup, close to 610 Loop @ 290 exit. I was injured and my car was totaled, but I was lucky to have Jill Yaziji as my lawyer. I hired Ms. Yaziji to represent me against the other driver and she handled my case, dealing with all the parties involved. After my medical treatment was completed, she worked hard to get me a great settlement that fairly compensated me for my injuries. She is top-gun. I highly recommend her. Tarif Y. Agha

A True Professional - Highly Recommended
As Architects we are always dealing with construction disputes and at times they end in litigation. We engaged Attorney Jill Yaziji to represent us in a Contract Litigation matter that involved multiple contractors, product suppliers, and two banks. Ms Yaziji was very versed in construction litigation and contract law, and was assessing the case from all angles and negotiated skillfully to reach a favorable outcome for us. Very professional, always available, and with sound advice. Highly recommended.

Great lawyer
Mrs. Yasiji was my personal injury lawyer back in 2005. I was involved in a serious car wreck and went to several other lawyers for help in my special case. To make a long story short Mrs. Yaziji was the only lawyer that took my case and was able to get me a fair settlement for my injuries and medical bills when the other lawyers would not even touch my case. Mrs. Yaziji in my book is one of the better lawyers of Houston , a great person along with being a good friend I would recommend her and her services anytime to whom ever needs a good lawyer.

Ms. Yaziji was a very aggressive fighter on my behalf and brought me justice! God bless you!
In 2014 I was severely injured when a car hit my motorcycle and threw me off the road. I lost a concussion and lost consciousness, and was hospitalized for a long period of time. I hired Jill Yaziji to represent me in my case against the driver that hit me. Jill worked on my case and got me a great settlement. Jill also filed claims under the Uninsured-Underinsured Motorist—UM-UIM, policy and settled my claims with that carrier as well. Because of all the effort Jill put into my case, I got a good result, and that helped me get back on my feet and overcome the side effects of my injury. The awesome thing Ms. Jaziji did was called a few times way after the case was closed just to check on how I was doing! I think that's very human & great nowadays! Thank you Ms. Jaziji, you are an amazing human & attorney that we need a lot of now days because you simply are a human who wasn't just all about business & and you cared! Thank you again & God bless you!

Personal Injury Case
A few years ago, I was seriously injured and had high medical bills to pay. I thought that a prestigious law firm with fancy TV commercials would be able to help me. I was wrong; they came to my residence, got information and pictures and that was it. I was frustrated and confused. This was the second time I had tried to get an attorney to help. I met this young lady, Ms. Jill Yaziji, and explained to her my situation and frustration with previous attorneys. She was very diligent in assisting me. This was a woman who did not tarry long but took the case, fought it, and gave it her all and won; I must admit it wasn’t easy. It took several depositions, and the information started coming out that made my case stronger. So with all this being said, my recovery financially was great! If you have been personally injured, and you want someone who’s honest, dependable, and reliable and will go the extra mile for you, I recommend the Yaziji Law Firm, which is the best personal injury attorneys to me there is. Thanks Jill!
