Briefcase: Texas Lawyer Tony Buzbee

Interview with UH Law Alumnus Tony Buzbee.

Trial attorney and UH law alumnus, Tony Buzbee has had a number of defining moments in his legal career. He represented the residents of Texas City and La Marque and won one of the largest jury verdicts against British Petroleum. And he’s represented clients such as former Governor Rick Perry and musician Jimmy Buffet.

Tony shared one of his secrets to being a successful trial attorney. “In trial, I don’t worry too much about the judge and I don’t worry too much about the gallery. I certainly don’t worry about the opposing lawyer,” Buzbee said. “What I do worry about is the people I am trying to persuade and that’s the jury.”

In 2015, Texas Lawyer magazine also named Tony Buzbee Attorney of the Year. “I was truly honored to be chosen. Texas has more than 25,000 lawyers and some of the best legal talent in the United States,” he said. “My work ethic, of course, is to stand for those who are wronged and I enjoy doing that.”
