Wesley A. Jackson
For more than a decade, Wes has represented both plaintiffs and defendants in a multitude of different civil case areas, involving oil and gas, energy, breach of contract, fraud, construction, personal injury, insurance, real property, trademark litigation, employment/labor law, professional responsibility, and other areas of the law. He has successfully defended many large and small corporations against personal injury and wrongful death claims, as well as other claims based in tort and in contract. He has provided insurance coverage opinions to some of the world’s largest insurance companies and has counseled many other businesses and individuals who have become embroiled in large- and small-scale litigation matters.
On the plaintiff’s side, Wes has represented many individuals and businesses in a myriad of different suits. Notably, he has successfully prosecuted claims on behalf of many landowners in royalty and other disputes with oil and gas operators. He has sued on behalf of chemical producers/distributors in a number of matters, as well as independent oil and gas companies in real property-related suits regarding interests in the Eagle-Ford Shale. Wes has also aided individuals and businesses in resolving matters prior to the institution of formal litigation.
Wes prides himself on his ability to effectively communicate very complicated legal issues to both judges and juries by focusing on the “big picture.” He has successfully first-chaired many jury trials in state and federal court in addition to advocating for clients during bench trials. It is through this personal interaction with judges, juries and witnesses that he finds the most enjoyment in his practice.
His clients find that he is accessible and attentive to their questions and concerns. Many clients do not deal with litigation on a regular basis, and when they become involved in a suit it is this accessibility and attentiveness that helps put them at ease, even in the most stressful of situations.
Wes and his wife Suzanne have three kids, Jake, Luke and Livi, who keep them on their toes at all times. When not working, he enjoys spending time with his family and friends, especially on any body of water.
