The issues in these cases have been broad ranging-from environmental disputes, probate matters, complex procedural fights, governmental immunity challenges, insurance coverage and default judgments, as well as malpractice and personal injury cases. Mr. Hogan served as part of the winning appellate team hired to overturn a $454 million verdict in a tortious interference case. In 2006, Mr. Hogan won two cases in the Texas Supreme Court-one for a plaintiff and one for a defendant. His firm has argued two appeals in the Texas Supreme Court since January 2009, winning both cases. In 2015, the court ruled in favor of enforcing an arbitration agreement in another of his cases. In December 2016, he argued a significant case for ExxonMobil involving the interpretation of the proportionate responsibility statute and employers' duties for employees' conduct. Along with his extensive practice before the Texas Supreme Court, Mr. Hogan has appeared as counsel before all fourteen Texas courts of appeals and in three federal circuit courts of appeals.Mr. Hogan has been selected for inclusion in Best Lawyers in America.
