Dedicated Client Service
When you hire The Krist Law Firm, P.C. to handle your personal injury case, you’ll find that in addition to our skill we also bring a strong sense of compassion and individual service to your case. Our goal is to help you restore as much of what you lost through your accident or injury as we can. The legal process can help restore your financial losses, but we understand that true recovery involves more than receiving a settlement check.
We take a holistic approach to representing people who have suffered serious injuries that includes working to connect you to the medical resources, emotional support, or occupational retraining that you need during your recovery. We are proud of the work we do on behalf of injured people to help them move forward when a tragic accident has altered their lives.
No Financial Risk to You
We understand that people who have suffered serious injuries also may be under financial stress. You have significant medical costs, especially if your injuries required hospitalization or surgery. At the same time, you may have lost time from work while you recover, during which you haven’t been paid. Or your injuries may have been so serious that you have a temporary or permanent impairment and may never be able to return to your previous job duties. You may require lifelong care, or need vocational retraining to learn to perform other work.
At The Krist Law Firm, P.C., we offer a free initial consultation so that we can discuss your case and explain your legal options. Your free consultation also gives you a chance to evaluate us and make sure we’re the right lawyers to handle your important and very personal legal matter.
Once you decide to hire us, there are no up-front fees to investigate your accident, file your lawsuit, or take your case to trial. We only get paid if we obtain compensation for you. That means you don’t have to forego the pursuit of justice simply because you can’t afford attorney fees out of your own pocket while you’re recovering.
Our highly-skilled attorneys have obtained some of the largest settlements and jury verdicts in Texas, including several multi-million dollar recoveries. We have represented some high-profile plaintiffs such as workers from the Deepwater Horizon oil rig and the families of astronauts killed in the space shuttle Challenger and Columbia disasters. However, we approach every case — no matter the size — with the same commitment to help you and your family move forward.
Based on our history, The Krist Law Firm, P.C has gained a reputation as effective personal injury attorneys and trial lawyers in Texas.

“He told me from the very beginning, ‘I’m to worry about your financial health. You worry about your physical health’ — and that’s what he did.”
A Unique and Aggressive Approach to Every Case
Every member of The Krist Law Firm, P.C. understands that no two cases are the same. Regardless of the cause, the impact of an injury accident on you and your family’s lives will be different than anyone else’s experience. As a result, we treat every case seriously and will take the time to get to know you, what’s important to you, and how best to secure a recovery.
If you were injured in a maritime accident, your case requires a deep understanding of how the Jones Act applies. If an insurance company is denying a justified claim of liability after a devastating car accident, our attorneys will use carefully measured, yet robust strategies to address the complexities and pursue justice on your behalf.
At The Krist Law Firm, P.C. we know how to go up against the large companies and insurers that may hinder your case or offer a settlement that won’t come close to meeting your needs. We accomplish this by never assuming a case will settle and prepare for each case as though it would go to trial. That means we thoroughly investigate every aspect of your accident or injury by talking to every witness, preserving important evidence, and gathering all the facts to identify and pursue those responsible for your injuries and losses.
We do all of this to build the strongest possible case so we can passionately and persuasively demonstrate why you deserve the maximum available compensation. Often, we can resolve matters without having to go to trial — which saves you time and means you get the money you need after your accident much sooner. However, we will take your case to trial when it’s in your best interest, and the work we do early in the process to establish the facts may help secure a better result from a jury.
Our Resources Are At Your Disposal
In cases involving catastrophic accidents and injuries, the injured person can often feel like David facing Goliath in the form of insurance companies, trucking companies, contractors, government agencies, product manufacturers, petrochemical companies, or perhaps even your own employer. While these institutions may have interests and profits to protect, with representation from The Krist Law Firm, P.C. rest assured you will have the tools to face any giant.
Investigations and evidence-gathering in a serious injury case often means collecting voluminous medical records, bills, financial statements, insurance policies, corporate documents, witness statements, and every other piece of evidence possible to support your case. Personal injury cases often require the use of expert witness testimony to analyze evidence and provide an independent assessment of how your accident happened or the toll your injuries have taken on your life. At The Krist Law Firm, P.C., we have the necessary network of experts, such as accident reconstructionists, life care planners, engineers, former industry professionals, medical experts, psychologists, and other authorities who can support and strengthen your case.
We also have the benefit of knowledge acquired through our many years of legal practice, which we use to anticipate how liable parties attempt to fight against your claim. We know how personal injury cases work, what evidence we’ll need, and how to present a strong argument, designed to obtain what you deserve.
No Upfront Costs
Few individuals can afford the substantial costs of a personal injury lawsuit. After all, a strong claim takes time, manpower, and a considerable investment. The Krist Law Firm, P.C. doesn’t think that your ability to find justice should be restricted by your economic status, and we will work tirelessly to ensure that you receive the most effective legal advocacy possible.
When you hire us, there are no fees unless you recover.
During your initial, free consultation with one our Houston personal injury attorneys, we will listen to the details of your incident, evaluate your legal options, and offer our professional advice. This consult is completely free, even if you decide against a lawsuit or choose another attorney.

The Highest Level of Compassion and Service in Difficult Times

We also offer a strong sense of compassion to each case and a dedication to making sure that you understand each step of the personal injury process.
