  2. Car accident

  3. Construction and development

I have been practicing law for close to 28 years, and have limited my practice to personal injury cases these last 20 years.  My practice is focused on major injury claims due to construction accidents, work-related injuries, 18-wheeler accidents, and injuries caused by drunk drivers.  Based on my success in obtaining numerous million dollar plus results, I was invited into the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, named a Texas Super Lawyer for the past several years, honored as one of the attorneys that obtained the highest personal injury verdict in Texas and the United States in 2010, and was inducted into the Texas Verdicts Hall of Fame in 2013 for Motor Vehicle verdicts.  While a native Texan, I am also licesenced in Colorado and New Mexico and have handled death cases in each of those states.  I speak Spanish fluently, and travel to Mexico to visit clients and friends.

I highly recommend Raul Pastrana
My family and I highly recommend Mr. Pastrana. He helped us greatly when my husband got severely injured in a work accident. He is very experienced and is very dedicated to his practice, always checking up on his clients and their welfare. Even though our case has been over for some time, he still calls us to check on us and see if we are doing OK.

While working with Steven, I have found Steven to be smart, thorough, and diligent. Steven always puts his client's interest before his own. Steven is one of the best PI attorneys I know.

Personal injury Attorney | May 05
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse this R. Steven Pastrana. I hired Mr. Pastrana to assist me on a wrongful death case that resulted from a construction accident. With Mr. Pastrana's help, I obtained an outstanding result for my clients."
Personal injury Attorney | May 05
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I loved watching Steve work in the courtroom. His demeanor and preparation earned him the trust of the jurors, and they responded with an outstanding verdict. I see him with clients, witnesses, and attorneys, and I tell others to watch and learn from him. What a great attorney and role model."
Personal injury Attorney | Apr 14
Relationship: Worked for lawyer
"Steve is hands down the most caring, knowledgeable, generous, and hard-working attorney I've met. I've known him for approximately eight years, first working for him as his legal intern, and then remaining friends throughout the years. I have seen the dedication he pours into each one of his cases, going above and beyond what most lawyers would be willing to do. Steve is highly-respected and known in the legal community for taking on the hard cases, the underprivileged individuals who face big companies by themselves, and winning them verdicts--million and multi-million dollar verdicts. As intelligent and successful as Steve is, you'll never hear it from him. He is extremely modest. One thing you will hear from everyone is, Steve is a super nice guy."
Wrongful death Attorney | Apr 27
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I whole heartedly endorse Steve Pastrana- he goes the extra mile for his clients and always has the clients interests first. You can not find a better lawyer in Austin than Steve."
