“In my legal practice, I have endeavored to advance the cause of justice and human welfare for those who cannot help themselves and are damaged in person and property, by improper use of science; who must therefore seek redress at law.”
Linda Durant HoussiereManaging Partner
"For the past 35 years, I have been blessed and thrilled to represent more than 1,500 clients, who have suffered personal injuries, most against large national companies. This David and Goliath story is replayed over and over in my practice, I strongly believe that a committed attorney can bring an injured individual justice under our great American legal system."
When you’re searching for the right attorney, a firm’s experience and reputation only give you part of the story. You want your representative to know the issues facing you inside and out. That’s what we offer at Houssiere Durant & Houssiere, LLP.
Founding attorney Charles “Chip” Houssiere wasn’t always in the legal field. In fact, before attending law school, he worked at NASA. He therefore has technical and scientific knowledge that is almost unheard of in the legal field. Chip’s experience working with astronauts in the Apollo, Skylab, and Soyuz missions involved exploring engineering and medical questions. Today, he uses that knowledge to go toe-to-toe with medical companies and experts who have wronged patients.
Chip’s experience is also the backbone of our firm’s strong products liability practice. Our reputation in the field is such that we often receive referrals from other law firms when they know they don’t have the means to handle a complex case. Chip goes above and beyond when it comes to protecting consumers—not only is he sometimes ahead of the curve in spotting dangerous products, but he has also helped companies improve defective products to the point where they no longer endanger consumers. This work is emblematic of Chip—and all of our—dedication to using what we know to make the world a better place.
Houssiere Durant & Houssiere, LLP also benefits from Chip’s Texas Board Certification in Personal Injury Trial Law (he is also considered Board Eligible in Civil Trial Law and Civil Trial Advocacy by the Texas Board of Civil Specialization and certified by the National Board of Trial Advocacy in Civil Trial Law). Managing partner Linda Durant Houssiere brings advanced mediation training to the table, as well as years of experience handling mass tort claims. She excels at honing the issues in a case and presenting demonstrative evidence to help a jury understand complicated cases.
With our team’s dedication to lifelong learning and advocacy, you can be confident your claim will be handled to the best of our ability. No matter what result you are hoping for, we can fight for you.
We understand that each client and every case is unique. We work with you to efficiently and effectively develop the proper course of action for your particular case. Over the years, we have become a trusted resource for individuals, families and businesses throughout Houston.
