The Firm

At Waters Kraus & Paul, we try important cases.

Important because we seek to right the wrongs done to honest, hardworking people — most of whom are in the fight of their lives. That’s why we take our work so seriously — and why our results are often noteworthy.

Our Experience

Waters Kraus & Paul is a national plaintiffs’ firm that litigates cases in jurisdictions across the United States on behalf of individuals from all 50 states. We have also successfully represented foreign governments in litigation involving multinational corporations. Today, Waters Kraus & Paul is one of the most highly respected law firms in the country, with a high referral rate from plaintiffs’ attorneys nationwide. Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, Waters Kraus & Paul also has an office in Los Angeles.

Our Approach

We start by sending your case straight to the top — to the Waters Kraus & Paul partner who will oversee your case from discovery through trial. Each of our partners is an accomplished lawyer who will head up a team of in-house researchers, associate attorneys, paralegals, and allied professionals to build the strongest case possible. Our thoroughness, coupled with our litigation expertise, makes us a formidable force for justice.

In sharp contrast to litigation mills whose primary goal is to reach a settlement, Waters Kraus & Paul prepares and pursues every case for litigation. Legal proceedings are expensive, protracted, and complicated affairs that involve great risk — and success favors the side that leaves absolutely nothing to chance. We are highly selective in the cases we accept, and we are wholeheartedly committed to the meticulous preparation of each one.

Our Resources

Our results are enhanced by our resources, which begin with a very able and agile team of experienced partners and attorneys. This allows us to be in multiple jurisdictions around the country on any given day. Our resources include a Medical Resources Department that is second-to-none and an extensive Litigation Support Department.

Medical Resources Department

The capabilities of our Medical Resources Department rival those of some of the nation’s largest law firms. The department was established under the direction of an attorney who is a D.V.M. and holds a Ph.D. in physiology. The department has developed into one of the most comprehensive resources in the legal profession today.

Among our tools are a variety of databases of scientific and medicolegal knowledge comprising more than 10,000 medical and scientific articles. These databases are updated and culled daily for information relevant to our cases, giving our litigation teams immediate access to late-breaking scientific data, medical literature, and medicolegal news. It also ensures that our case files and strategy are thoroughly researched and adequately supported.

Litigation Support Department

This team of research and legal professionals uses cutting-edge, multimedia discovery to monitor industry and legal news, review legal motions and notices, and gather intelligence. Our Litigation Support members focus their full efforts on evaluating huge amounts of information and digging for “smoking gun” documentation. The Litigation Support team currently manages more than 70,000 liability documents. This team also keeps our attorneys up to date on the issues that affect our practice, products that have injured our clients, and the defendants we’ll face during litigation.
