Jeffrey Fultz

Jeffrey Pierce Fultz, a native Texan, was raised in Navasota, a small town in southeast Texas.  He comes from a family of country lawyers that embody grit, determination and service above self, and is engrained with a tough work ethic and non-elitist, yet confident personality, understanding that the practice of law is a service industry in which a lawyer must be able to identify and relate to all types of individuals, clients and adversaries.  His commitment to providing personal attention to his clients and their cases is his top priority and personal brand, whether it be a large business, corporation or an individual.  He is known for his tenacity for vigorously defending his clients and “getting the job done” efficiently with honesty, integrity and compassion.  As a civil defense litigator, his practice focus includes cases involving personal injury, products liability, mass tort, first party claims and litigation, and a variety of complex civil and commercial litigation.  Jeffrey represents commercial, property & casualty, oil & gas, and personal lines/commercial auto insurers and their insureds, providing investigative services, pre-litigation claims resolution, and zealous representation of his clients in all stages of civil litigation through trial.
 
Having been a licensed Texas attorney since 1994, Jeffrey has handled a broad range of civil matters including cases and claims related to exposure to silica, asbestos, benzene and other toxic/environmental hazards; premises liability; construction defects; products liability; and catastrophic injury/wrongful death cases. In addition, he has developed a strong practice and is heavily involved in handling first-party insurance claims, bad faith and other insurance coverage litigation as well as extensive experience litigating cases involving commercial trucking accidents, automobile accidents, and cases involving catastrophic injury, property damage, cargo damage, and subrogation matters.
 
Jeffrey serves as National Coordinating Counsel for clients who are involved in toxic tort and chemical exposure cases, and litigates cases filed in Texas and Mississippi, where he has been licensed since 1994 and 2003, respectively.  More recently he has obtained his licenses to practice law in Illinois and Missouri and been admitted in cases to assist local counsel in other states, including Louisiana, Oklahoma, Arkansas, California, Pennsylvania, and Florida.
 
Jeffrey is a frequent speaker and has been the featured presenter in webinars for his insurance clients, and also conducts continuing education seminars and classes presented to insurance company professionals on a wide variety of topics, including Texas claims handling, product liability cases, insurance compliance, insurance coverage, the Stowers doctrine, commercial trucking, benzene, silica, and automobile cases.
 
Jeffrey is passionate about the history of Texas and serves on the board of Washington-on-the-Brazos State Historical Foundation as its Executive Vice-President.   He and his wife Sherry, and their two sons reside in Houston, Texas.
