Many personal injury attorneys have never seen the inside of a courtroom. They aim to take on cases that are easily settled, so they can quickly move on to the next one. Gregg Anderson has never been one of those attorneys. In fact, he feels quite comfortable in a courtroom.
“It’s where I’ve gotten financial justice for my clients many times,” Anderson said. “Most cases are resolved without going to trial, but even in those cases, having a lawyer who is willing and able to do battle against the insurance companies’ lawyers in that arena can make a difference in the outcome.”
Mr. Anderson has been practicing law for four decades, and he is still motivated by a sense of responsibility to his clients.
“I still find it incredibly rewarding to help my clients put their lives back together after suffering serious or catastrophic injuries as a result of someone else’s negligent conduct,” Anderson said. “This is all I’ve ever done as a lawyer, and all I’ll ever do.”
He knows that he can make a difference in people’s lives by standing up for their rights to fair compensation after a serious injury.
“I take a personal interest in my clients,” Anderson said. “I can’t change what happened to cause my clients’ injuries, but I can change what happens next by obtaining fair and just compensation for them.”
Gregg Anderson has lived in Houston since he was 11 years old. He graduated from Westchester High School in 1974. He attended the University of Texas at Austin as a student in the Plan II Honors Program, graduating with honors in 1978. He received his law degree from the University of Houston College of Law in 1981.
Mr. Anderson has tried over 60 cases to verdict in courtrooms all over the state of Texas. He has served the State Bar of Texas as member of a grievance committee and as a special prosecutor.
Mr. Anderson has devoted his entire legal career to representing individuals who have been injured, or the families of individuals who have been killed, as a result of the negligence of others. He understands that an injury or the death of a loved one, whether caused by a car wreck, an on-the-job incident, or some other means, is a disruptive, daunting and bewildering event.
“I know insurance companies and corporations will spend whatever it takes to deny just and fair compensation to injured individuals,” Anderson said. “I also know pain doesn’t take a vacation and rent, mortgage payments, car notes, electric bills, etc., come due every month, and creditors don’t care that you’re unable to meet your obligations due to someone else’s negligence.”
An avalanche of medical bills coupled with an inability to work to earn the money necessary to support yourself and your family creates a very scary and uncertain future. Mr. Anderson considers it a privilege to help his clients through difficult times and ultimately to right the wrong that has been done to them.
Mr. Anderson and his wife have been married since 1985, and they have two wonderful daughters, both of whom have graduated from college and embarked on their careers.
