Description

Kwok Daniel Ltd., L.L.P. is located in Houston, Texas and focuses on personal injury law cases involving: car wrecks, truck wrecks, bus wrecks, all other wrecks, products liability, workplace injuries, tire defects, seatbelt defects, airbag defects, refinery explosions, oil rig explosions, refinery explosions, wrongful death, SUV rollovers and train crossing collisions. For over two decades, our Firm Founder, Robert Kwok, has led our litigation department, trying cases against some of the biggest corporations on earth, including British Petroleum, GlaxoSmithKline, Union Pacific Railroad, Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad, Oiltaking Partners, Exxon Mobil, Shell Oil, AIG, The Hartford, Zurich, Ford, Mitsubishi and Toyota – just to name a few. Trying cases is much different than settling cases. Most lawyers can settle a case. But very few lawyers can effectively try a case to a jury – requiring a much different skill set and frequently resulting in higher recoveries for our clients. Trials are complicated and often filled with a myriad of facts and issues. Licensed in 1994 and Board Certified in 1998, Mr. Kwok is a highly respected and skilled litigator who has tried nearly 100 jury trials to verdict. Many of Mr. Kwok’s high profile trials are covered by the media locally and nationwide on a regular basis. Not only are we among the top litigators in the City, we excel in creating solutions and conducting negotiations that get cases settled before or during trial. While many lawyers can be aggressive and angry, we instead strive to be personable, persuasive, and to get along well with others. It is this finesse that allows for confrontation and assertiveness when necessary while maintaining open lines of communication. This is what sets Kwok Daniel apart from other law firms – over 100+ years of combined experience, record setting verdicts and settlements, and our respect for others. Our attorneys and staff are fluent in Spanish, Vietnamese, Mandarin, Farsi, and are ready to serve you. We are committed to complete your case by settlement or jury trial, should the facts warrant such action. We work hard to provide you – our clients – with aggressive, efficient and personal legal services. The Firm continues to experience strong growth and demand, due in part to our very strong referral base of past clients and network of referring attorneys who have earned substantial five, six and seven figure referral fees over the years. Thank you for your interest in Kwok Daniel, Ltd., LLP – we would be honored to represent you and we look forward to working with you on your case. Many of Kwok Daniel’s jury trials have been followed by local and national news agencies, including the Houston Chronicle, the Galveston County Daily News, the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, Forbes, Business Week, Bloomberg, MSNBC, USA Today, Fox News, Dow Jones News Wires, and various trial magazines and publications.
