Paul Bennett has been focused on solving client problems and resolving conflicts for over 25 years. Experience has taught him that disputes are not concluded in a vacuum, but through prompt and thorough investigation, early evaluation and timely communication with clients and opposing counsel. Most cases never make it to a jury, but he is ready for those that do. He has extensive trial experience and has achieved defense verdicts for his clients in courts and arbitration tribunals throughout Texas, including cases involving trucking accidents, car wrecks, dram shop claims, product liability claims, premises claims, fires, dog bites and construction defect claims. Past clients have described Paul’s efforts on their behalf at trial with words like “articulate,” “prepared” and “excellent.”
Paul frequently represents individuals and businesses in the transportation, hospitality, insurance, construction and manufacturing industries. He has also represented professionals such as real estate brokers, real estate appraisers, accountants and insurance brokers in contested matters, including before professional boards and licensing agencies. He is a frequent speaker on Texas legal topics at professional conferences throughout the United States.
A native of Tyler, Texas, Paul and his wife Janet live in Dallas with their two children and a Collie. When not trying cases, he can be found coaching YMCA soccer and cheering at flag football games.
