Daniel “Tad” Rice and The Rice Firm focuses on complex personal injury and other civil matters in Texas and throughout the nation. We represent individuals and businesses that value hard work, competitiveness, perseverance, and a desire to fight for what is right. We are very selective and take very few cases, but work on those zealously with the staunch belief that we will win. Your call is welcome.
Tad has been recognized for his work by the legal community. His awards include: Texas Monthly Super Lawyers – Top Young Lawyers in Texas – Rising Star in 2011, The National Trial Lawyers – Top 40 Under 40 in Texas in 2012, and The National Trial Lawyers – Top 100 Trial Lawyers in Texas in 2013.
As a veteran litigator and zealous advocate, we prepare our cases for trial. Although trial itself is important, much of a case occurs months or years before – during pre-trial discovery. We have fought discovery battles against some of the largest corporations in the world. Tad has successfully litigated cases against: British Petroleum, General Electric, Toyota, Chrysler, Bridgestone, Goodyear-Dunlop, U-Haul, ArvinMeritor, MCI, Nexen Tire, Graco, Medtronic, Pharmecutics International and many others.
Tad has obtained very favorable awards and settlements for victims of defective products, negligence, chemical explosions, electrocutions and other major catastrophic events. He has achieved numerous settlements in excess of one million dollars, including several in excess of ten million dollars. He has won cases through discovery, arbitration, by motion practice and in mediation. Although he primarily practices in catastrophic personal injury cases, he has also won cases for his clients in: Admiralty Law, Construction Law, Employment Law, Contract Law, Commercial Law and general Civil Litigation.
