Jeffrey W. Hastings Of Counsel




Jeff Hastings is a highly respected trial lawyer with more than 30 years of experience, particularly as a  railroad lawyer who defends the industry in just about any kind of catastrophe that happens on the rails, including Federal Employer Liability Act (FELA) matters, railroad grade crossing accidents, trespasser incidents, derailments, chemical spills and asbestos exposure. Jeff also is a big-truck lawyer, defending trucking and service companies in motor vehicle accidents that result in significant personal injuries or death. 

Jeff has tried cases in state and federal courts across much of Texas and in Oklahoma, Colorado and North Carolina, including those involving negligence, products liability, toxic torts, breach of contract, fraud, defamation and deceptive trade practices. With a solid working knowledge of human anatomy, he has achieved positive results handling wrongful death claims and cases involving traumatic brain injury, as well as severed limbs and injuries to the lower back, neck, shoulder, knee, hand, eye, ear, lung, heart and nerves. 

Jeff believes that the best way to resolve a serious case is to be prepared ‒ fully prepared. As a defense attorney he relishes any kind of case where there is a possibly to go to trial, and he believes there are no more powerful words than “call your first witness” … and mean it.
