BSJ Law Group, P.L.L.C.
After graduating from Baylor Law School, I began working as a litigation associate attorney at Allen, Stein & Durbin, P.C. in San Antonio, Texas in 2001. I was fortunate to work for and learn from some excellent trial attorneys at this firm. I remained in this position until December of 2011.
In January of 2012, I co-founded the law firm of Jacob Jordan, P.L.L.C. in San Antonio, Texas and served as its managing attorney.
In September of 2016, I founded the law firm of BSJ Law Group, P.L.L.C. (also in San Antonio, Texas) and have served as its managing attorney from its founding up to the present. Under my leadership, BSJ Law Group, P.L.L.C. was proud to announce the opening of its second office location in Waco, Texas on July 1, 2018.
I have over 17 years of civil litigation experience providing representation to individuals, businesses, and insurance companies throughout Central and South Texas. My law practice focuses primarily on personal injury, wrongful death, and construction dispute matters. I also represent telecommunications service providers against negligent excavators, contractors, subcontractors, builders, and other businesses that cause damage to underground and/or aerial telecommunications equipment.
I am admitted to practice law before all Texas state courts, as well as the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas. I have successfully tried to verdict jury trials, involving a wide range of subject matter and alleged damages, in multiple venues in the State of Texas.
I believe that the practice of law is a calling, not just a profession. I strive to be a positive influence in the lives of my clients and further hope that each client I serve will have a more positive view of the legal profession after my representation of them.
I have been recognized as a “Top Rated Personal Injury Attorney in San Antonio, TX” by Super Lawyers. I have also been recognized as one of Super Lawyers “Rising Stars” for the State of Texas in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015 (and as published in Texas Monthly), which is a rating service provided by Thomson Reuters of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. This selection process includes independent research, peer nominations, and peer evaluations. In order to be eligible for Super Lawyers “Rising Stars” a lawyer must have been 40 years of age or younger, or have been in practice 10 years or less, at the time of the selection process. Only 2.5 percent of eligible lawyers in the State of Texas were selected for this recognition.
I have been recognized and rated by the Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings as an “AV Preeminent” attorney since 2010 and up to the present, which represents a peer rating with the “Highest Level of Professional Excellence.” The Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings represents that it is the gold standard in attorney ratings and that it is has been recognizing lawyers for their strong legal ability and high ethical standards for more than a century. The Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings allows attorneys to complete anonymous peer reviews where they rate fellow lawyers on a scale from 1 (lowest) to 5 (highest) in five categories: Legal Knowledge, Analytical Capabilities, Judgment, Communication Ability, and Legal Experience. The peer review attorneys are also asked to answer whether or not they believe the lawyer they are reviewing has very high ethical standards. The “AV Preeminent” rating by the Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings signifies that a large number of the lawyer's peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence for their legal knowledge, analytical capability, judgment, communication ability, legal experience, and ethical standards.
I was also selected for membership in Lawyers of Distinction on August 6, 2018, which recognizes excellence in the practice of law.
