    The concept of a products liability allows a consumer to recover for harm caused by a defective product. It is traditionally required that a plaintiff prove that (1) the injury or harm resulted from the defective product and (2) that the product was in fact defective when it left the hands of the manufacturer. A manufacturer of a product should be held accountable when a consumer uses a product in the manner in which it was intended to be used but is harmed or injured by the product.

Born in Omaha, Nebraska, Toby has been a Texan since 1986.  After graduating from the University of Houston with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science, Toby attended law school at South Texas College of Law, where his studies concentrated on trial advocacy.

 

Toby has been helping both individuals and businesses for more than a decade, in Texas and beyond.  Whether representing individuals or businesses, Toby’s litigation background proves invaluable in guiding clients through complex disputes.  Toby assists business clients – beginning with entity formation and developing business-specific operating agreements – in building a solid foundation for extended business growth.  Through strategic planning and risk analysis, Toby works closely with his clients as they grow and prosper.  And, as a company grows and develops, Toby provides continued guidance and risk assessment in a variety of business transactions, investments and disputes.  Given his extensive litigation experience and background, Toby can also successfully guide his clients through the challenges they face when some disputes require the filing of a lawsuit.  No stranger to the courthouse, Toby has successfully litigated many cases in both state and federal courts on behalf of his clients.

 

In appreciation for his efforts and skill, Toby was selected in 2009 by his peers and clients as one of Houston’s Top “Lawyers for the People” in H Texas Magazine.

 

In 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014, Toby was also recognized by Texas Monthly magazine as a Rising Star in the legal profession.  Less than 2.5% of the attorneys in the state of Texas have been recognized as a Rising Star.

 

Toby was again recognized in 2013 and 2014 by H Texas Magazine as one of Houston’s Top Lawyers handling matters involving civil litigation.

 

In 2013, Toby was proud to be inducted as a Life Member in the Million Dollar Advocates Forum as well as the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, organizations which recognize the top trial attorneys throughout the United States who have achieved outstanding results for their clients.  Fewer than 1% of U.S. lawyers belong to this prestigious group.

 

Toby’s practice since being licensed has focused on litigation and business consulting.

 

At home, Toby is the proud father to three energetic boys, and he is the husband to an amazing and busy wife.  In addition to his practice, Toby also serves as a Sunday School teacher at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church, a Member on the River Oaks Elementary Shared Decision Making Committee and as a baseball coach for his sons’ youth baseball teams.

Toby Fullmer Is an Ethical, Superstar Litigator
Toby was all in from the beginning with my case, in which I was a plaintiff pursuing justice for a broken promissory note involving a very large amount of money. The defendant was someone who habitually offended and had received other default judgements against her, but in our case Toby maneuvered through the complexities during a difficult time (the pandemic) and not only did we receive a default judgement, but we RECOVERED our monies, plus interest, court sanctions against the defendant, and all attorneys fees. Toby Fullmer's knowledge of the law allowed for our success, and I will never forget it. The twists and turns - checkmate and ultimate victory - were due to his thoughtful strategy. Toby listened, strategized, and won.

A Master of His Craft
I was entered into a legally binding contract as an investor/lender in 2019 pre-Covid. During the middle of the pandemic, the contract had matured and the borrower had not paid back funds. After a year of waiting and stressing out; I decided it was time to take legal action. Enter Toby - Toby represented me as the plaintiff and excelled in all that he did. Due to Covid, the court system had slowed down and everything seemed to be taking longer than it usually would. Fortunately, I had Toby on my side and he churned on unfazed. The defendant tried to pull every stop to slow him down but she certainly wasn’t able to keep him from getting a judgement in my favor. Once Toby was hired, he dealt with the court case and all communications with the defendant once she tried to make direct contact. I never had to be present in court, yet Toby always made me feel like I was in control and made sure I had all the information needed before I made a decision. Through the process, Toby gave suggestions and recommendations on how to move forward and he was ALWAYS right! Even though the legal case took two years because of how backed up the court system was and an elusive defendant; Toby got it done! The wheels of justice turn slowly, but grind exceedingly fine and Toby made sure it did. Thank you for everything you have done!

Top Shelf Guidance
My company has been using Toby for several years to handle general transactional matters as well as occasional litigation matters that arise. He’s acted as a general counsel and, more important, a business advisor for our business. He’s an asset and someone who understands both the law and how it impacts our business. Responsive, dedicated, articulate and capable of helping a business navigate tough legal waters. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Toby for any legal matter.

Outside Corporate Counsel
Toby is super responsive on matters big and small. He is willing and able to help out with everything from a brief contract review to complex litigation support and negotiation. In all matters, I know that once he's taken a look and provided counsel to the business, I'm aware of what potential consequences and benefits are, and what can be assured that I'm made aware of important facts that could impact the business.

Best call I ever made
10 years ago if you would have asked me "Do you know a good lawyer?" I would have said no and at the time, never thought I would have needed a lawyer. As time would prove different! I now think everyone should have a lawyer and if you are so blessed as me. I hope you end up with Toby Fullmer. From the very first call, he confidently, calmly, empathetically listened and guided me through a process that I had no clue about. Now, I've used him twice, once for a litigation case and another for a startup business contract. Today, if you were to ask me. "Do you know a good lawyer?" I will calmly and confidently guide you to Toby Fullmer!

Honest, knowledgeable, thorough and trustworthy...
I simply cannot say enough good things about Toby. It's rare (if ever) that I've completed a survey with all top marks for the subject but in this case I certainly did. As I read through each category I couldn't identify any issue that would cause me to rate it any lower. I found Toby to go above and beyond on several occasions, to be responsive and available during the times I needed a quick response and to be quite thorough in his evaluation and depth of knowledge on the subjects at hand. His advice and assistance have all been invaluable to the success of not one, but two ventures I've co-founded. Toby has assisted in the following areas: contracts, debt collection, corporate structure, filings and creditor negotiations.

Quite the knowledgeable gentleman
We had just relocated to Texas and were unfamiliar with any attorney in the area when the need for one arose. I have worked for attorneys for many years (over 30) and was quite impressed with his truthfulness, his gentlemanly manner and his complete honesty as to whether or not I was justified in seeking his advice. I would strongly recommend Toby to anyone who is in the need of a personal injury attorney,
