Pryce Tucker

Partner / Dallas

Pryce Tucker joins the Houston office of SBSB Eastham with extensive experience in a wide range of legal matters. These include defending against catastrophic personal injury, wrongful death, and property damage claims and lawsuits in state and federal courts in Texas and beyond. He’s handled everything from commercial vehicle crashes, heavy equipment accidents, and oilfield mishaps, to wildfires and environmental contamination claims. He also has 25 years of products liability experience—including the defense of design, manufacturing, and marketing/warnings defect claims involving consumer products, motor vehicles, motorcycles, interstate motor coaches, forklifts, and other industrial equipment. Pryce has also defended against numerous fire claims—an area he was drawn to from his past experience and training as a volunteer firefighter.

While Pryce is a strong believer in courtroom advocacy, he also gets results outside the courtroom by developing and cultivating productive relationships with opposing counsel.

Before entering private practice, Pryce was fortunate to have a two-year clerkship at the United States District Court for the District of Kansas. There, he drafted Memorandum Opinions and Orders on dispositive motions in a range of civil cases, including antitrust litigation, employment discrimination suits, tort actions, breach-of-contract matters, telecommunications litigation, bankruptcy appeals, and civil rights cases. That experience gave him invaluable insight into how judges approach the task of adjudicating the issues before them.
