Nelson Roach, the founding partner of the Daingerfield, Texas-based Roach Law Firm, has once again been honored with the prestigious title of Texas “Super Lawyer” by Thomson Reuters. This recognition marks Roach’s 14th consecutive year receiving the award and places him among the top 5% of attorneys in Texas.

Roach’s award comes on the heels of his remarkable $730 million victory in a recent truck accident case, underscoring his unparalleled dedication to the rights of injury victims.

“I am honored to be recognized again as a Texas Super Lawyer,” Roach said. “I am dedicated to protecting the rights of everyday people who have been harmed as a result of someone else’s negligence, whether it occurs in East Texas or beyond. If you or a loved one has been injured, it doesn’t matter if the responsible party is a large corporation, an insurance company, or an individual. You deserve justice.”

Nelson Roach’s Super Lawyers Recognition

Roach’s Super Lawyers award is a testament to his exceptional legal acumen and unwavering commitment to excellence in the field of personal injury law. Each year, only a select few attorneys nationwide receive this prestigious honor, which recognizes those who have demonstrated outstanding professional achievement and garnered high esteem from their peers. Roach’s repeated inclusion in the Super Lawyers list underscores his standing as a luminary in Texas and his legal experience in Arkansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and elsewhere.

Biggest Verdict in Wrongful Death Case

Roach’s Super Lawyers recognition follows his monumental triumph in an East Texas truck accident case, where he secured a groundbreaking $730 million jury verdict, one of the largest wrongful death awards in U.S. history. The case followed the tragic death of Toni Combest, a beloved great-grandmother from Pittsburg, Texas, who lost her life in a collision involving an oversize-cargo truck. The decision was the fourth-largest jury verdict in the United States that year.

Legal Expertise and Advocacy

With over three decades of legal experience, Roach has amassed an impressive track record of record-breaking verdicts and settlements in a wide range of other cases, from tobacco litigation to patent infringement disputes. His $17 billion settlement against tobacco companies, $554 million in jury awards and royalties in a series of patent-infringement cases, $119 million settlement in an environmental contamination case, and $90 million award for injured steelworkers underscore his effectiveness as both a trial lawyer and an expert negotiator.

Other Recognitions from Peers and Industry Leaders

In addition to his Super Lawyers award, Roach has earned accolades from esteemed organizations such as the National Trial Lawyers, an invitation-only group. He was recently named to its Top 10 Trucking Trial Lawyers and Top 100 Trial Lawyers lists, further solidifying his status as a preeminent advocate for plaintiffs’ rights.
