About me

Brian N. Mazzola, a native of Orange, Texas, is an aggressive plaintiffs' advocate and trial attorney who has litigated cases all across the United States in both state and federal courts. In developing his nationwide practice, he has had the honor of representing individuals in over half of our nation's states.  Although he accepts cases in all areas of civil litigation, Mr. Mazzola's practice is primarily focused in the area of personal injury. Having successfully prosecuted claims against many of America's largest corporations, he is well suited to confront the David vs. Goliath dynamic that often accompanies personal injury litigation. 


 


As a former civil defense attorney, Mr. Mazzola possesses a keen ability to anticipate and exploit defense counsel tactics, thereby offering his clients a distinct competitive advantage both in and out of the courtroom. Mr. Mazzola is relentless in his quest for justice, and does not rest until his client's quality of life has been restored to the fullest extent possible. 


 


Mr. Mazzola has been selected as a Rising Star as part of Texas Monthly’s recognition of Texas Super Lawyers. Nominated by members of the prestigious Texas Super Lawyers list, the Texas Rising Star honor is reserved for the top Texas attorneys who are 40 years old or younger, or have been in practice fewer than 10 years. Less than 2.5 percent of eligible Texas attorneys receive this honor each year. 
 



 


Mr. Mazzola is also proud to be a life member of both the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. Established in 1993, the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and the Multi-Million dollar advocates forum are among the most prestigious groups of trial lawyers in the United States. Membership is limited to attorneys who have won million and multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements. Fewer than 1 percent of U.S. lawyers are members.


 


Most recently, Mr. Mazzola was awarded an AV® Preeminent Peer Review Rating by Martindale-Hubbell®, which is the highest possible rating. Generations of lawyers have relied on Martindale-Hubbell® as the authoritative resource for information on the worldwide legal profession. An AV® certification mark is a significant rating accomplishment — a testament to the fact that a lawyer's peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence. Mr. Mazzola has also been honored with an Overall Client Rating of 5.0 out of 5.0.
