About Nefi

Learn Nefi’s areas of practice.


Nefi Lopez grew up in Tomball, Texas - a small town about an hour north of Houston. In high school, Nefi excelled at both athletics and academics. Nefi graduated towards the top of his high school class; in sports, Nefi and the Klein Bearkats won several district and area championships in both football and track and field. Nefi competed in sports while also participating in Klein’s interscholastic Speech and Debate team and was member of the Klein Band as a saxophone player. Following his high school career, Nefi attended Houston Christian University as one of the program’s inaugural football team members and played fullback and defensive line for the Huskies under head coach Vic Shealy.

In college, Nefi's academic success continued. Along with competing on the football team, Nefi competed in the university’s mock trial program representing the university, then known as Houston Baptist University, around the country. As the captain of the Husky Mock Trial Team, Nefi competed and won numerous national tournaments and received numerous awards as an advocate and a witness. Nefi was also a member of various honor societies and graduated with a bachelor’s degree with a focus in Governmental studies and Rhetorical Studies.

After graduation from Houston Christian University, Nefi attended law school at South Texas College of Law, Houston. In law school, Nefi quickly became a member of the law school's nationally recognized mock trial and moot court programs under Dean T. Gerald Treece and Rob Galloway. Just after his first year of law school, Nefi won the T. Gerald Treece Summer Trial academy and received the only Best Speaker Award. Nefi went on to win the T. Gerald Treece Summer Trial academy again the year after. Ultimately, Nefi competed as a varsity advocate in over 16 mock trial and moot court competitions across the country.

Soon after taking the bar, Nefi received his license to practice law in Texas from the State Bar of Texas. Following graduation from law school and taking the Texas Bar, Nefi worked as an associate attorney at an elite personal injury firm where he received immediate and invaluable experience under the leadership of highly esteemed lawyers. Since then, Nefi founded his law firm, Lopez Franco PLLC, where he helps Texans get the help they need after becoming injured as a result of someone else’s negligence.

Nefi works as a lawyer by day and by night as a coach for the mock trial and moot court teams for his alma maters, South Texas College of Law, Houston and Houston Christian University. Additionally, Nefi is actively involved in the legal community and is a proud member of the Hispanic Bar Association, Texas Young Lawyers Association, Mexican American Bar Association, Garland R. Walker American Inn of Court, Hispanic National Bar Association, American Association for Justice, Houston Trial Lawyers Association, Houston Bar Association and the Texas Trial Lawyers Association.

As a licensed attorney, Nefi continues to work on a wide range of cases in civil litigation, representing people injured as a result of the negligence and carelessness of others. Who you hire matters, so let Nefi help you.

Nefi is the best!!
I got into a three car accident and the other persons insurance kept giving me the run around. Nefi was able to help me immensely and get me the help I needed! I didn’t have to deal with any external parties, I was able to focus on healing and recovering. He is truly the best at what he does!

#1 ATTORNEY!!!
Nefi was great for my case and an OUTSTANDING attorney! Nefi and his team met with us occasionally and kept great communication throughout the whole process. My case ended up going to trial and I did not know Nefi was going to be a part of it but if I could have a recording of the trial to show people how good of an attorney Nefi really is and how he destroyed the cop involved in my case and ultimately got the case dismissed before the jury even got involved then I would be sharing it all over social media! Nefi and his team are by far the best representation I have ever had and I strongly recommend them to anyone for any case!

Nefi was referred to me by a friend after I got in a terrible car accident at the beginning on the year. He is very experienced and professional and explained the whole process to me which ultimately led me to hire him for my case. Throughout the process he was a very effective communicator and was very patient when it came to answering any and all questions that I had, putting me at ease that I was in very good hands. Nefi was very professional, confident and understanding and I would definitely recommend him to anyone seeking an attorney!
