Attorney Profile                          

 Law Firm Experience

Travis Brewer has a vast and broad law firm experience. Licensed since 1984, Mr. Brewer first practiced for nine years with Vinson & Elkins, L.L.P., one of the largest firms in the United States, in both their Washington, D.C. and Houston, Texas offices. He then was head of the litigation section of West, Webb, Albritton & Gentry for three years, and for six years was lead trial counsel for Martin & Associates, a nonsubscription specialty firm. His litigation background from 1984 to 1996 was extremely broad, including cases in the areas of employment law, medical and legal malpractice, insurance bad faith, construction, oil and gas, securities fraud, toxic torts, real estate, as well as personal injury. Since 1996, he has done almost exclusively personal injury defense work, specializing in nonsubscription defense.  Mr. Brewer has also been very successful during his whole career in writing and arguing appeals at both the state and federal levels. This broad foundation of litigation experience has allowed Mr. Brewer to see nonsubscriber cases clearly in their context as a subset of all the different types of cases at the courthouse or in arbitration.

Educational Experience

 Mr. Brewer’s educational accomplishments are outstanding. He graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 1981 with honors and a degree in Mathematics, and in 1984 from the University of Texas School of Law with his law degree, again graduating with honors, from the finest law school in the Southwest. Mr. Brewer was a member of the Texas Law Review from 1982-84, chosen for exceptional law school grades (top 3% of his class), including three Am. Jur. (highest class grade) awards in Contracts, Constitutional Law, and Legal Research and Writing. He also was a writer on the Legal Research Board. While with Vinson & Elkins, he took two intense trial-training courses, including a prestigious three-week national NITA course in Boulder, Colorado. During his nine years with Vinson & Elkins, Mr. Brewer was privileged to learn trial work from some of the best trial lawyers in the country.
