Defense of Manufacturers and Energy Companies

Personal Injury

Barry represents clients in a wide variety of personal injury litigation matters. Midland’s unique position in the oil-rich Permian Basin and Houston’s proximity to the Gulf Coast have enabled Barry to try serious personal injury and death cases arising from oil industry accidents, chemical plant accidents, and product failures. Since 1990, Barry has also defended a variety of fire and explosion cases involving compressor air starters, oil pipelines, propane pipelines, petroleum storage tanks, reactor catalyst vessels, gas compressors, water injection storage batteries, chlorine lines, electrical transformers, frac tanks, hydrocarbon tanker trucks, and refinery fractionator units.

General Civil Litigation

Although personal injury defense has been the primary focus of Barry’s career, he also has a broad range of trials including matters relating to lender liability, securities fraud, oil and gas title and operating agreement disputes, contract disputes, and employment law claims.
