About Anthony

Learn Anthony’s areas of practice.

I was born and raised in the Houston area.  I left Houston for 4 years to attend college at UT in Austin and then got back as soon as I could.  My parents taught me at a very young age to fight for the little guy.  They taught me the values of respect, hard work, and ethics.   

When I decided to go to law school, I chose a school that prides itself on advocacy and litigation skills.  I knew that I wanted to be in the courtroom.  I did not want to be a transactional attorney so I enrolled at South Texas College of Law in downtown Houston, one of the finest law schools for advocacy in the country.  While at South Texas, I participated in several moot court and mock trial competitions and served on the Board of Advocates. 

I was very fortunate to begin my legal career working for Howard Nations, one of the preeminent plaintiff attorneys in the country.  Working with Mr. Nations, I obtained invaluable knowledge and experience working on very complex personal injury and wrongful death cases, including automotive products liability, 18-wheeler collisions, serious motor vehicle collisions, industrial accidents, as well as commercial and contractual disputes. 

I always knew I wanted to have my own law firm so, after several years of practice with Mr. Nations, I partnered with my law school buddy, Chad Points, to form Denena & Points, PC in 2003.  Since that time, the firm has focused its practice on representing individuals, families, and business entities in complex personal injury and commercial disputes.  We have successfully represented clients against major corporations and insurance companies such as Ford Motor Company, Daimler Chrysler, General Motors, Firestone, Reliant Energy, Bank One, ARE, Inc., Allstate, State Farm, Farmers, Progressive, Geico, and others. 

I have obtained countless successful recoveries for my clients through settlements and trials.  Together with my law partner, We have achieved favorable results in cases involving catastrophic 18-wheeler collisions, serious car, motorcycle, and truck collisions, defective and dangerous products, including vehicles, vehicle components, and children’s toys, maritime and Jones Act injuries, and general personal injury, wrongful death, and commercial matters.  Chad and I have represented thousands of clients over our careers.

I am Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. This honor is achieved by less than 2% of the licensed attorneys in Texas.  To become Board Certified, I had to demonstrate an extensive knowledge of personal injury trial law through my education, experience, and substantial involvement in a wide variety of personal injury matters including auto wrecks, truck wrecks, motorcycle wrecks, and defective products.  I had to sit as lead counsel on several cases that were tried to a jury verdict.  I had to be evaluated by my peers, including attorneys with whom I have worked, opposing attorneys, and judges.  Lastly, I had to pass a day-long written examination administered by the Board.   To maintain my Certification, I have to attend personal injury continuing legal education courses to stay current on all of the latest trends and cases involving personal injury trial law. 

I have been recognized by H Texas Magazine as a Professional on the Fast Track.  I have published "PowerSurfing The Web: The Internet as a Research Tool for Personal Injury Lawyers," Advanced Personal Injury Course State Bar of Texas 1997 and “Demonstrative Evidence Predicates,”  Ultimate Trial Notebook, State Bar of Texas Annual Convention 2000 and have spoken on a variety of internet and evidence topics for the State Bar of Texas.  I have also submitted a brief to the Texas Supreme Court on the applicability of the hospital peer review privilege. 

Together with my beautiful wife, Andrea, we have three wonderful children.  They are a handful and keep us very busy at home.  Andrea is also a licensed attorney, but she chose to temporarily retire from the practice of law when our first child was born so she could devote herself to raising our children.  Her temporary retirement has lasted ten years now, but I could not be happier with her decision.  I have coached my children's sports teams from baseball to basketball and football and thoroughly enjoy working with all kids. 

Recently I fought for my neighborhood against the homeowners association's attempt to wrongfully limit the association's liability if an individual was injured or killed at our community pool.  The association tried to require all homeowners to sign a waiver of liability before granting access to the pool for the summer.  I was successful in convincing the association to table the discussion.  As a reward, I was nominated to serve on the pool committee to oversee all community pool operations.  I served 3 years on the committee. 

Andrea and I are active members of First United Methodist Church of Pearland and have participated in adult bible studies to strengthen our faith.  Our children have all gone through the Methodist preschol program and Andrea has taught Vacation Bible School for the past several summers. 

I am licensed to practice in all state courts in Texas and in the United States District Courts for the Southern and Northern Districts.  I am a member of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association, the Attorneys Information Exchange Group, and the American Association for Justice.

Great Service!
Attorney Denena just recently settled my case involving a car wreck. My husband and I were very pleased with the outcome of the case and would definitely recommend him. Tony was always clear and knowledgeable about my case and explained everything very well. He kept us informed. His staff, especially Rosy were friendly and efficient.

Best Lawyer Ever
Very informative. Never distracted. Always attentive and honest. Best attorney to have when you are involved in a lot of suffering. I suffered a lot of trauma and Tony Denena and Marisol Gomez were both empathetic and wonderful. I cannot thank them enough.

Very Competent Attorney
Tony just recently settled my case involving a car wreck that resulted in personal injury. I was very pleased with the outcome of the case and would definitely recommend Mr. Denena. Tony was always clear and knowledgeable about my case and never forgetting details. He always kept me informed, and worked to get my case settled as soon as possible. When it came time to negotiate my settlement, I felt his experience in and out of the courtroom, and his advise, resulted in the best possible settlement. His staff was friendly, efficient, and was knowledgeable in regard to my case. Barbara B

"I endorse this lawyer. I have known and worked with Tony for over 15 years. I have referred many cases to Tony over the years and he has always provided great direction and representation to each client. Tony analyzes his cases much more thoroughly than most attorneys and always provides clients clear direction regarding their cases. In addition to his depth of knowledge of the law and the litigation process, Tony typically goes one step further than most other attorneys... he focuses on his clients to help them fully understand the legal aspects of their situation and to ensure their satisfaction with the legal process, as for many clients this is their first experience with a legal matter or with lawyers in general. Clients I have referred to Tony typically report back to me about how satisfied they were with his representation."
