Bob Brzezinski grew up on the East Coast and moved to Texas in the early 1970's.
His parents were both first-generation Americans, the children of Polish
immigrants. His father was a decorated World War II veteran, and he and
Bob's mom shared nearly 60 years together before he passed away.
His parents’ values of patriotism, loyalty, and the importance of
family have informed Bob Brzezinski's life and work. His folks passed
on to him the notion of "paying your dues" at an early age,
and Bob has followed that idea ever since. In high school he worked as
many as three jobs simultaneously and was a National Merit Scholarship
Finalist and two-sport athlete who set several school records, some of
which still stood nearly 30 years later. In college he delivered marble
bathtubs to help pay for his tuition, often working full-time while attending
school full-time. In 1990, Bob began clerking for Tom Rhodes as a law
student, and has worked alongside him ever since.
He tried his first case a year out of law school and has tried many more
since then, handling complex lawsuits all over Texas as well as in other
states such as Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Alabama, Louisiana, New Mexico,
Arkansas, Connecticut, and Kentucky. Bob has briefed and argued cases
in front of several Texas appellate courts and the Supreme Court of Texas,
and has lectured on legal topics at conferences and seminars in the United
States and Canada. He has been interviewed on television news programs
about his representation of the catastrophically injured.
Brzezinski is Board Certified in Civil Trial Advocacy by the National Board
of Trial Advocacy and in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board
of Legal Specialization. He is also a peer-nominated member of the American
Board of Trial Advocates; has been named a "Top 100 Trial Lawyer"
by The National Trial Lawyers (2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015); and since
2003 has held an "AV Preeminent" rating from the Martindale-Hubbell
legal publication, the highest rating awarded attorneys by that publication.
In 2015 he was named one of 100 “Premier Trial Attorneys” in
Texas by the American Academy of Trial Attorneys, an honor accorded to
less than 1% of the attorneys practicing in the United States. In 2016
he was invited to join the National League of Renowned Attorneys, an organization
which examines the professionalism, ethics, and notable verdicts of potential
invitees and is open to approximately 1% of the attorneys in the country;
and was nominated for a Lifetime Achievement award by the America’s
Top 100 Attorneys organization.
He is a devoted family man who enjoys traveling and spending his free time
with his wife and children.
