John Neese is a 17-year civil trial lawyer who represents companies and individuals in business disputes and serious personal injury matters.


John began his career with the large downtown law firm of Vinson & Elkins LLP. At V&E, he tried cases involving issues of commercial, construction, personal injury and real estate law. After four years, however, John left V&E so that he could represent businesses and individuals on a contingent fee basis – a practice which large law firms typically do not allow. After leaving V&E, John eventually formed the Neese Law Firm, PC. And later, John co-founded Hawash Meade Gaston Neese & Cicack LLP.
