Johns Marrs Ellis & Hodge is a litigation boutique built to win high-stakes property disputes.
The firm’s founding partners, all classmates at the University of Texas School of Law, became successful trial and appellate lawyers at some of the country’s most prestigious law firms, often after serving as law clerks for prominent judges.
Our lawyers have won at the United States Supreme Court, secured eight-figure settlements and verdicts for plaintiffs, obtained reversal of a nine-figure liability determination for defendants, and prevailed in scores of other cases in federal and state courts from coast to coast. Diligent preparation, creative problem solving, and skilled execution of sound litigation strategies are the hallmarks of our attorneys’ approach to practicing law. We are proud that our client roster, which includes individuals as well as Fortune Global 100 companies, consists largely of clients referred to us by former clients and lawyers who have seen us in action—and previous opponents who did not want to face us in court again.
Our approach to litigation helps explain our attorneys’ records of success. We prepare every case to go to trial, and our opponents know we will take our cases to verdict and on appeal if necessary. This reality makes good settlements possible.
Repeated “Super Lawyer” and “Rising Star” designations, “preeminent” AV rating by Martindale-Hubble, and Austin Bar Association’s Outstanding Young Lawyer are just a few examples of the honors earned by our lawyers.
