In 2016, McMinn Law Firm secured one of the Top 50 Settlements in Texas (also designated by topverdict.com) for a child who was injured.

Early in his career, Jason McMinn worked as an insurance defense attorney. He now uses those insights to seek justice on behalf of people suffering serious injuries from accidents. He is an experienced trial lawyer.

Justin McMinn has spent the greater part of his legal career concentrating on personal injury negotiations. His vast knowledge of personal injury law assists the firm in reaching fair settlements for clients.

When not at the office, Jason McMinn, Justin McMinn, and Heather McMinn dedicate time to their families and causes they are passionate about.

Their passion for young people across the state can be seen in their contributions to missions of Kids in a New Groove, TruLight127, and more.

The McMinn’s job is to advocate for the rights of those who have been injured. Crash victims deserve the ability to treat their injuries and receive compensation for their losses.

The attorneys at McMinn Law Firm know there are no “winners” in personal injury cases – there are those whose lives are changed forever due to another’s recklessness and those who face the consequences of ruining another’s life.

It is the duty of a personal injury accident lawyer, Jason McMinn and Justin McMinn, to ensure that victims have an advocate for their financial recovery after the accident.

The McMinn’s, lifelong Texas residents, are committed to principles that serve justice for every individual and family.
