Why go to Mithoff Law for your Houston personal injury attorney
The Houston personal injury attorneys at Mithoff Law are fearless advocates. We have earned the reputation for being some of the best personal injury lawyers in Houston not only because we are well-versed in many types of personal injury cases, but also because we care about our clients.
Led by the example of Mithoff Law founder and renowned trial lawyer Richard Mithoff, a Houston personal injury attorney at our firm will never forget that your personal injury case is about you, your injuries, and your story. The impact of this approach on the success of our cases is well documented in our record of success, but L.M. Sixel of Houston Chronicle put it especially well in her article “Lawyer Richard Mithoff: a study in empathy:”
“[His] sense of empathy has helped Mithoff become one of the nation’s most successful trial attorneys, championing the cause of consumers, senior citizens and distraught families against leading corporations, major industries, and other powerful interests.”
Of course, it takes more than empathy for a Houston personal injury attorney to win a case. That’s why the attorneys at Mithoff Law are also known for the thoroughness of our pre-trial preparations, our ability to connect with a jury, and our ruthless commitment to getting you maximum compensation.
Mithoff has been the subject of profiles in a number of publications, including:
- Texas Super Lawyers “Legends of the Law” (“notching hundreds of $1 million-plus personal injury and commercial verdicts and settlements;” “an uncanny ability to grasp the heart of a case and craft persuasive arguments to sway judges and juries”)

- Houston Business Journal “Attorney Wins Cases for Causes in Trials by Fire” (“one of the state’s most prominent legal renegades”)
