Tillotson Johnson & Patton is a premier trial and appellate boutique based in Dallas, Texas. Four things set our firm apart.

First, we built our firm as a ‘team’ concept. The firm is a single, integrated trial team. Cases are not staffed with whatever lawyers might be free; the trial and appellate teams are already in place. Clients know exactly who will work on their case and what their role is. 

Second, our team has enormous expertise in trial and appellate courts. We typically try several major cases and have multiple appellate arguments every year. We are on both sides of the docket, and the breadth of our subject-matter expertise covers the entire gamut of business disputes, as well as personal injury and property damage.

Third, our true expertise is in knowing how to win cases. Lots of firms will tell you that the best way to get a case resolved is to push it to trial. Here’s the part they miss: You have to be a credible trial threat in the first place for that strategy to work. We have that credibility because we try - and win - the difficult cases. We are the trial team that exposed Lance Armstrong’s drug usage (the result of an epic ten-year lawsuit later made into a movie). We are also the trial team that earned the Texas Lawbook Business Litigation win of 2018 (FTC v. DIRECTV). We are a law firm that took on Yahoo! in a “Billion Dollar NCAA bracket case” and won. Not every case makes the news, but our consistent and long history of successful trials speaks for itself.

Finally,  with the addition of our appellate practice in 2022, the depth and expertise of the Tillotson bench is unmatched. Our highly-respected appellate team is retained in high-stakes cases at all phases, and has handled appeals from the some of the largest judgments in Texas.
