If you’re looking for a levelheaded, steady hand at the helm of your case, Robert Vining is the lawyer you need. His calm demeaner and attention to detail have been hallmarks of a prolific law career, including being first and second chair for jury and bench trials, arguing and briefing appeals, and motions before federal and state courts throughout Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi.
He has conducted numerous depositions, including those of plaintiffs, fact witnesses, corporate representatives, physicians, and experts. Robert has also negotiated and drafted master service agreements, drilling contracts, construction contracts, access agreements, leases, and rental agreements as well as articles of incorporation, operating agreements, and other business-related documentation. He has also served as a panel member for CLEs and maritime presentations.
Robert’s stoic persona belies a passionate and intense drive to achieve the best result for his client. When he needs to take the gloves off, he will. He once had a client describe his cross-examination as “listening to a pit bull tear into” the witness. With Robert, you know you’re getting the best of both worlds: a solid detail-oriented attorney but with the intensity to use his vast skill and experience to succeed.
