Fearless Representation, Unrivaled Results

Our hardworking legal team has extensive experience handling large-scale, complex cases that require bold and innovative tactics, as well as personal injury cases that have upended a person’s life where justice needs to be served. No matter the size of the case, we take the same fearless and strategic approach. Our tenacity and determination has a reputation that speaks for itself.  Established in Texas over 40 years ago, Nix Patterson is a national contingency fee law firm providing legal solutions and litigation strategies for both individuals and companies.

What We’re Known For

Nix Patterson has a well-deserved reputation for excellence and innovation in groundbreaking litigation. We are well known for being instrumental in obtaining a $17.6 billion settlement for the State of Texas in historic litigation against Big Tobacco, but in recent years we’ve recovered billions more in verdicts and settlements in diverse and complex cases across a wide range of practice areas. We handle almost every type of plaintiff litigation and arbitration for our clients, and our results are unparalleled.

How We Do It

Since the beginning, we have been driven by one constant: Our expert attorneys achieve extraordinary results through hard work and innovation. Our clients choose us because they know we devote  our deep resources to fight for them. Every day, each attorney at Nix Patterson strives to be second to none, and we pride ourselves in our ability to handle complex cases no other law firms would — or could — take on. Where others back down, we step up.
