J. Austen Irrobali

Austen approaches our clients’ cases with the same tenacity and focus that led him from El Paso public schools to Harvard University.  As a trial lawyer, he draws on his experience as a fifth-grade teacher in El Paso to persuasively communicate complex concepts and arguments in an easy to understand manner.  

Austen has been a key player and invaluable contributor to several of the firm’s biggest cases since he joined in 2016.  Austen was the lead associate defending clients in a years-long non-compete case that the other side walked away from on the eve of trial.   He also has taken the lead in handling a variety of lawsuits for a group of investors defrauded in a Ponzi scheme and successfully resolved numerous complex commercial, employment and property-related disputes.  

Prior to joining the firm,  Austen was an associate in the Dallas office of Andrews Kurth.
