Our Lawyers

Our team offers not only a remarkable breadth and depth of trial experience, but experience in arbitration and appellate matters as well. In addition, many of our partners are board certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in one or more areas of litigation:

  • Don Jackson – Civil Trial, Personal Injury Trial
  • Eileen O’Neill – Civil Appellate, Civil Trial
  • Paul Smith – Personal Injury Trial
  • Tim Lee – Civil Appellate

Board certification requires that an attorney practice in their area of specialization for at least three years, as well as take part in rigorous continuing education courses. It’s an achievement that few attorneys reach.

There’s something else that’s distinct about us and our attorneys: we listen. Clients appreciate that our attorneys take the time to understand their priorities and then develop a plan and strategy reflecting their input.

Scott Hooper

Scott Hooper has been serving clients for over 25 years. During the first decade, he represented exclusively defendants in civil lawsuits. For the next 10 years, he almost exclusively represented plaintiffs in civil lawsuits. Scott’s experience has given him a perspective few other lawyers share. Being able to see a case from both vantage points has allowed him to develop strategies to efficiently and effectively resolve clients’ problems.

Scott wanted to be a lawyer since he was a little boy – which is strange, since he is the first and only lawyer in his family. Over his career, he has fought hard for his clients. The most important thing he can do for a client is understand how their legal problem affects their business or personal interests. He does not attempt to pursue a legal strategy without trying to understand how that strategy impacts both of those things. His clients appreciate his efforts to understand their business, their product and their long term goals as they relate to the conflict that brought them to seek legal counsel.

Scott loves trying cases, but a trial is not always the best route for a client. Scott and the other attorneys at Ware Jackson try cases that need to be tried. From winning cases that other lawyers claimed were unwinnable to helping clients efficiently resolve significant cases with horrible damages and admitted liability, Scott has helped clients get the results they want while managing the litigation process to avoid wasteful and unnecessary costs.

Scott loves spending time and travelling with his wife, Micha, and his two kids, Caden and Keali. They just returned from Europe, where they lived in Amsterdam and London for two and a half years. They loved travelling all over Europe and Asia. Their kids are just now losing their British accents.
