Award-Winning Representation Working For You

I am relentless in fighting for justice for my clients that have been injured or killed by the wrongful conduct of others. I have faced off against some of the largest corporations in the country and won. I bring a unique approach to litigation that helps me see solutions where other lawyers see problems. I often take on and turn around legal cases that have often been turned down by other lawyers. Over my career, I’ve found that applying a creative, outside-the-box approach to these complex legal issues makes all the difference for my clients.

My practice is focused on catastrophic injury and wrongful death litigation across the country that arises from negligence, gross negligence, defective products, corporate greed, premises liability, malpractice, and toxic torts.

I began my legal career defending companies that were sued for causing injuries. After two years, I saw first-hand the greed and dishonesty of big corporations and insurance companies, and I switched sides to only represent people that were injured and needed a voice.

There was one case in particular that I worked on involving a young boy who died after falling off a slide on a Dairy Queen playground. After handling that case, I knew I couldn’t work for big corporations and insurance companies anymore. I was put on this earth to help people, not harm them. So, far the last 20 years, I have spent my time relentlessly fighting for those without a voice. I handle all types of catastrophic injury and death cases.

I am honored to have been chosen by my peers to receive many awards and accolades, including:

  • One of the Best Lawyers in Dallas byD Magazine in 2009-2019
  • One of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers in Texas by the The National Trial Lawyers Association (2010-2019)

I successfully repAttorney Greshamresented victims in the first national class action against Google and Yahoo! for "click fraud." I also represented the families of seven laborers who were killed in the largest vehicular manslaughter case in Texas history where 10 people were killed after a runaway 18-wheeler crossed into the oncoming lanes of traffic of Highway 75.

I currently am representing clients with claims against Toyota Motor Corp., GlaxoSmithKline LLC,,—a testament to my ability to take on some of the largest corporations in America without blinking. I have also handled whistleblower (qui tam) cases under the False Claims Act. I am a member of the Civil Rights Volunteer Attorney Panel for the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas. After the 9/11 attack on our country, I provided pro bono legal representation for victims of 9/11.


Throughout my career as an aggressive attorney, I have concentrated on representing clients who have been the unsuspecting victims of defective or dangerous products, corporate greed, irresponsibility, and fraud. With my sharp ability to analyze complex legal issues, I have been successful in devising unique solutions to seemingly unsolvable legal cases and problems.

"My clients tell me I'm easy to talk to, and they appreciate that I listen to them and care about their case," Gresham says. "If I can maximize recovery for a client and make a difference in his or her life that will somehow ease whatever it is that is burdening them, I'm doing my job. But, I am especially proud when a case results in a change of a policy, procedure or practice that will protect others in the future. That's a win not only for my client, but also for society."
