Sameer Hashmi

Sameer briefed, argued, and won a dispositive summary judgment motion for a Fortune 500 client within three months of beginning his practice, and he hasn’t looked back since. Sameer grew up loving to tell stories. Now a trial lawyer, he spends his time telling his clients' stories. As a first-generation lawyer from a household with limited means, Sameer understands how to communicate complex issues to everyday people. He uses this skill to his clients' advantage as he represents plaintiffs and defendants in various areas of complex litigation, including fiduciary liability, contracts, professional malpractice defense, copyrights, antitrust, oil and gas, and premises liability.

Prior to joining the firm, Sameer spent a year clerking for the Honorable Andrew S. Hanen in the Southern District of Texas, Houston Division. He draws on this invaluable experience as he represents clients in federal and state court. Sameer graduated second in his class from Baylor Law School, where he served as Editor-in-Chief of the Law Review. While at Baylor, he won multiple advocacy competitions and awards, including the 2015 “Mad Dog” Mock Trial Competition, a five-day, single-elimination, one-on-one trial competition.
