About Us

We’re a team of experienced trial lawyers

We believe in a focused strategy aimed at early trial preparation. Highly competitive,
laser-focused and love to be in the courtroom

Tom Stilwell started the Stilwell Law Firm in January 2017, after twenty-five years of success at a number
of large national firms here in Houston, Texas. Amanda Pierson works as Tom’s associate and has experience
with personal injury defense, particularly with aviation claims and oilfield accidents.


We represent both plaintiffs and defendants, and we use that experience on each matter we tackle. Our experience on both sides of the docket prepares us to anticipate the other sides’ positions, and it makes us better lawyers for you.

This is experience you can count on.


Regardless of the complexity of the matter, we focus on themes and make your message simple for the judge and jury to remember.

Our lawyers have the skill and willingness to try your case to a jury.

Tom Stilwell is the finest attorney I have used in my 30 years in business.

Our goal to be trial-ready lets us concentrate on achieving the ultimate outcome for you.  We do not get mired in the tangential details that are not out-come determinative.  From the first meeting, we work with you to understand your needs and develop the strategy to achieve your desired outcome.

Your goal is our goal.  It’s what we focus on from day one.


Your case is personal to you.  And, it is personal to us too.  We push the other side just as if it were one of us or one of our family that we represent.  Because to us,  you are family.

We only take the cases we believe in, because each and every case is personal.


We frequently use contingent fee structures because it aligns our goals with your goals.  If you win, we win.  If you lose, we lose.  We align ourselves with you so that our compensation is measured by our results.

We share the risk because we believe in your case.

Operating from Houston, Texas

We have helped our clients win cases around the country. If you need help with a case outside of Texas, we will get temporarily admitted there, or we will team up with qualified lawyers in your state.
