I want my clients to be at ease knowing how strongly I feel about the responsibility in protecting and advancing their interests while also maintaining transparency in the process. In the words of Clarence Darrow 'I am prepared to be demanding, outrageous, irreverent, blasphemous, a rogue, a renegade, and a hated, isolated, and lonely person' if that is what it takes to further my client's interest.

Mr. Weatherford is a member of the State Bar of Texas and is admitted to practice in all Texas State Courts and the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas.
