undefinedMeet Roger S. Braugh, Jr.

Nationally-Recognized Attorney

Before starting his law practice, Mr. Braugh clerked for the Chief Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. He then started his career with Fulbright & Jaworksi, LLP in Houston, Texas in 1996. In 1999, Mr. Braugh left Flubright & Jaworski to focus on contingent fee trial work. He is a founding partner of the law firm. Mr. Braugh maintains a national, multi-state practice in a variety of complex commercial, industrial and consumer disputes.

In Rose Munoz v. Ford Motor Co., Mr. Braugh obtained a significant verdict, which was the first jury verdict in the nation involving the notorious combination of Ford Explorers and Firestone ATX and Wilderness AT tires. These products had claimed the lives of over 200 people and injured hundreds more.

Prior to this case, the U.S. automotive and tire industry had denied that aged tires presented any hazard to consumers, but during the course of the Munoz case, Ford Motor Company finally agreed to begin warning consumers about tire aging. Since this verdict, automotive and tire companies have begun providing consumer information on tire age limits.

Mr. Braugh’s many verdicts and settlements include a wide variety of cases, from business partnership disputes, shareholder derivative and oppression cases, commercial disputes involving oilfield operations and business dealings, to injury cases involving oilfield equipment, trucking negligence, premises liability, automotive and tire defects, and defective industrial equipment.
