Meet Mesothelioma Lawyer Richard A. Dodd, L.C.
Mesothelioma attorney Richard Dodd’s extensive study of law, coupled with over 25 years of experience helping those who’ve been injured and wronged by the negligence of others, has made him a dedicated and experienced legal advocate. His devotion to people and the betterment of his community in general are shown by his commitment to the very best for all people both inside and outside of the courtroom.
The human factor is a central concern in Dodd’s practice as an asbestos exposure attorney, and he understands the role emotions play in every aspect of a person’s legal endeavors. Respecting each client’s emotions is a central part of his work for others. Having witnessed injustices early in life, Dodd set out to educate himself in the best ways to help people who suffered from societal injustices. He is proud of the dedication of his asbestos law firm to helping only those with legitimate needs for a mesothelioma lawsuit and not accepting frivolous cases.
Asbestos attorney Richard Dodd learned the value of applying himself to meaningful work on a daily basis and maintaining high standards of responsibility from his cotton-farming upbringing. Farming continues to be a part of Dodd’s life as he jointly oversees a large farming operation with his brother. He is stirred by a great love of the environment, which is evident in more than farming, including hobbies such as bird watching and raising acres of wildflowers and planting thousands of trees.
Bringing that same daily emphasis on meaningful endeavor to his law practice, Dodd is selective about his cases and chooses only those to which he knows he can apply all his legal skills to achieve success for deserving clients. His knowledge of the law and refusal to stop short of its complete fulfillment for his clients have gained him a respected status as both an opponent and colleague for all with whom he comes into contact.
A graduate of the University of Houston Bates College of Law in 1981, Dodd has attended over 1,000 hours of continuing legal education, including trial advocacy and jury psychology courses. He is a member of the State Bars of Texas, Pennsylvania, New York and Arkansas. He is active in the Milam County Bar Association, Texas Trial Lawyers Association, Texas Bar Foundation (Fellow), College of the State Bar of Texas (Fellow), Million Dollar Advocates Forum, and American College of Legal Medicine. He is on the Leaders Forum of the American Association for Justice (AAJ) and belongs to the Products, Professional Negligence, Motor Vehicle, and Toxic, Environmental — Pharmaceutical Sections of AAJ, and to the Birth Trauma Litigation Group, the Medical Negligence Information Exchange Group, and the Brain Injury Association.
