Tireless preparation of the case for trial sometimes requires late nights. This is what sets The Girards Law Firm apart from many other firms. “In complex cases involving birth injuries or brain and spinal cord injuries, preparation makes the difference between full justice or a bitter and painful defeat,” says James Girards. “That’s probably the only thing that has remained constant in my 25 years of practice.”
For a firm that only pursues severe injury cases involving everything from trucking collisions to birth injuries, the practice has served well, resulting in many outstanding verdicts and settlements.
Girards obtained what the Texas Lawyer newspaper determined was the fourth-largest medical malpractice verdict in Texas for 2011. He is Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and has been recognized as one of the top attorneys in the country by Newsweek magazine. He has been a governor of the American Association for Justice, director of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association, and president of the Dallas Trial Lawyers Association. He is licensed in Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas and is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum.
He resides in Dallas with his wife and five children.
