Personal injury cases require meticulous preparation and passionate advocacy from a lawyer who has a firm grasp of the law and the ability to connect with jurors.

The lawyers at Gillam & Smith are known for both their technical expertise and their ability to try—and win—complex personal injury cases.

Our track record speaks for itself: Among our many victories at trial is a significant wrongful death verdict in federal court in Marshall on behalf of the family of a young woman who was killed as a result of a defective seat belt.

Over the last 30 years, we have represented injured parties and their families in a wide array of personal injury matters, including

  • Auto accidents
  • DWI accidents
  • Motorcycle and recreational vehicle accidents
  • Boating and personal watercraft accidents
  • Workplace accidents
  • Construction site accidents
  • Oil field accidents
  • Defective products
  • Negligence
  • Wrongful death

Finding success in the courtroom isn’t easy. It requires attention to detail and a commitment to staying abreast of changes in the law that could impact our clients.

As part of that commitment, our founding partners are Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, and they are certified as Civil Trial Advocates through the National Board of Trial Advocacy. In order to maintain those selective certifications, our attorneys must comply with rigorous continuing legal education requirements.

Our attorneys also hold leadership positions in some of the most prestigious legal organizations dedicated to protecting the rights of those who have been injured through the negligence of others.

They have served in leadership roles are the American Association for Justice (formerly ATLA) and the Texas Trial Lawyers Association.

At Gillam & Smith, we are committed to achieving the best possible resolution for our clients in a timely manner.

Our lawyers’ deep roots in East Texas, combined with our exceptional courtroom skills, mean our clients receive the best possible representation in their personal injury matters.
