About Pierce M. Adkins

Attorney Biography

Attorney Pierce M. Adkins, in Houson, TX, with the Adkins Law Firm, has successfully recovered millions of dollars for his clients in the civil prosecution of numerous product liability, premises liability, wrongful death, serious personal injury, commercial, and construction lawsuits.

Mr. Adkins represents clients located throughout the United States and abroad and has successfully litigated a variety of state and federal civil litigation matters throughout his career. Mr. Adkins received his Bachelor of Business Administration degree from the University of Mississippi and his law degree from South Texas College of Law in Houston, Texas. While in Law School, Mr. Adkins was an Assistant MIS/ Articles Editor on the South Texas Law Review where he received numerous writing awards, including the E.E. Townes Award for Best Article on Constitutional Law and the Judge John R. Brown Award for Distinguished Service. While in law school, Mr. Adkins interned for Judge Michael T. McSpadden in the 209th Criminal District Court and the Justice Kem Frost in the 14th Court of Appeals. Mr. Adkins also studied International Law at the University of Malta. Mr. Adkins underwent Alternative Dispute Resolution and Mediation Training meeting the qualifications of an Impartial Third Party as set forth under 154.052 of the Texas Civil Practices and Remedies Code.

Mr. Adkins excels at analyzing complex disputes, pinpointing issues and presenting solutions clearly and succinctly. Mr. Adkins has succeeded in recovering millions of dollars for harms and losses suffered by his clients in the civil prosecution of product liability, premises liability, wrongful death, serious personal injury, commercial, and construction litigation cases. Mr. Adkins is a strong advocate for the belief that attorneys and the civil justice system should be used to protect both individuals and small businesses from oppression by those that seek to do them harm. To stay apprised of current legal issues and events, Mr. Adkins' attendance at continuing legal education courses far exceeds that of most attorneys, which has led to his admission to the College of the State Bar of Texas since 2011. Mr. Adkins' studies in public speaking together strong communication skills obtained through courtroom experience have earned him the admiration and respect of leaders in both the legal and business communities.

Mr. Adkins has a strong professional drive and naturally aggressive instinct to solve complex problems for his clients. When not litigating he fulfills that instinct by volunteering for organizations such as Habitat for Humanity and assisting efforts to repeal unfair laws that seek to eliminate the ability for persons to recover for the harms wrongfully and/or needlessly caused to them by others. Fighting for those who have been wronged and/or injured is something Mr. Adkins passionately believes in and deeply cares about what happens to his clients. By keeping his client's perspective at the forefront of his thoughts, Mr. Adkins's litigation efforts have made a difference in the lives of each and every one of his clients across the United States. Due to the extent he has been involved in automotive and manufacturer products liability, Mr. Adkins is licensed in the Eastern District of Michigan and the Western District of Wisconsin. While native to Texas, Mr. Adkins has represented clients in Florida, Michigan, California, Wisconsin, Louisiana, and Ohio pro hac vice against manufacturers of unsafe appliances and motor vehicles.
