Premier Dallas Severe Injury Attorneys
|Meet Attorney Marc Lenahan
What sets Lenahan Law Firm apart?
At the Lenahan Law Firm, our formula is simple: a special team of attorneys,
who work together on only a select handful of cases, for severely injured
clients we believe in, no matter where in Texas or North Dakota the injury
happened. That means a better chance at justice,
better results more often, and
And, yes, each of the photos above are from actual cases of Marc's,
and each quote is from a client that we'd be proud to tell you about.
What is a "severe" injury?
Broken Bones, Emergency Surgery & Everything Worse
We believe that lawyers do a better job for their clients when they are focused.
We focus on three things at the Lenahan Law Firm:
- Limiting the amount of clients we take on
- Attorneys with specific & complementary skills
- Only representing clients with severe injuries
So what do we mean by "severe" injuries? The quick answer is
that if you or a loved-one required emergency surgery, suffered a broken
bone, or anything worse—wrongful death, burns, paralysis, brain
injury, etc.—we consider what you're suffering from to be a
severe injury. And never, never, never evaluate whether or not you need
an attorney based on how much money or insurance you “think”
there is, or how much an insurance company claims there is. If an insurance
agent tells you, “you’ll end up with less if you hire an attorney,”
you can't possibly know what’s true and what’s not until
you’ve been lied to as many times as we have by insurance companies
and defendants. Speak with our Firm to get the facts.
Fighting for Maximum Compensation is What We Do
Wondering if you would benefit from hiring an attorney? Consider the “$6,500,000”
case above. First, the family was told that $50,000 was all there was.
Then we were told there was $1,000,000, but that they’d never pay.
A year later, another $5,000,000 policy was discovered. If the family
had taken the original $50,000 when they were told, “that’s
all there is,” they would have received no real measure of justice.
Our firm was able to prevent that because they decided to call us anyway.
Because our firm wasable to secure such a large recovery, we were able
to use the family's tragedy to
save others from being killed in the same way. Knowing that their case was
used to help others brings the family more peace than anything else.
A Unique Texas Injury Law Firm
Special Cases Deserve Special Care
When you turn to the Lenahan Law Firm for help, you will meet a legal team
As a premier severe injury law firm in Texas, we believe that special clients deserve a
special team of attorneys. Our team is Kathleen, Wes, Tom & Marc. Yes, the way we represent
you is extremely different from the way most every other injury law firm
in Texas represents their clients. Look around the website for some details
and personal stories that will tell you more or, even better, give us
a call right now to talk about it.
Afraid of hiring a firm with 600 clients per attorney? We think you should be.
The Lenahan Law Firm is an exclusive severe personal injury law firm in
Dallas, Texas. Here, we usually
maintain less than
10 cases per attorney and accept the representation of only select clients at a time: the severely
injured and those who have lost a loved one to wrongful death. How is
this different? It is an unpleasant secret that a very common way to practice
injury law is to accumulate an enormous amount of clients without ever
telling the client that their case won't get any more personal attention
from their attorney than could be squeezed into a few hours total. It
is probably the case that any other firm you are considering has at least
100 cases per attorney, as that is a ratio that several well-respected
firms utilize. Do you think those clients would have made that choice
if they knew?
We've learned that most people who are looking for a severe injury
law firm have no idea how extraordinarily vast the differences between
law firms can be. The problem with this is that is that a prospective
client with an important injury case will find a never-ending list of
lawyers wanting to serve. That list will include all kinds: criminal lawyers,
divorce lawyers, lawyers who do a little bit of everything, and firms
with massive marketing programs that ask each lawyer in their firm to
handle 200, 300, 600 or more cases. Certainly not all, but far too
many personal injury lawyers have well over 100 clients per attorney. Yes, there are numerous Dallas injury law firms with over 600 clients
per attorney. In three very crucial ways, the Lenahan Law Firm is not
like any of those firms.
First, we accept the representation of ONLY the severely injured and those
who have lost a loved one to wrongful death. Helping those who have suffered
through a catastrophic event that caused a loved one's wrongful death,
a brain injury, paralysis, emergency surgery, and other types of severe
injuries, is all we do. Second, we only represent a select number of clients
at any one time. We believe that representing clients with such life-changing
injuries requires and deserves personal attention. We understand that
each case is unique, and we never know what any one client's case
will ask of us. Our cases frequently require battling a courtroom full
of insurance lawyers, and we focus on every fight. Third, because each
of our cases requires that we take the client's story into our hearts,
we accept the representation of only clients we believe in.
If you think that our Firm and your case might be a good fit, the sooner
you call or email, the better. We have a lot to talk about,
so let's get started! Call now at (888) 380-5630.
Researching us from far away? You’re in good company.
HQ in Dallas. Base Stations in Austin, Midland & North Dakota. Clients
A disproportionately high ratio of our clients finds us from locations
far from Dallas. In fact, our clientele at any one time might include
almost as many individuals from North Dakota, Hong Kong, London, Austin,
San Antonio, Tennessee, Florida, Virginia and Michigan as from Dallas,
Coppell, Irving, Farmers Branch, Plano, Frisco and Carrollton. We have
a theory for
why this might be. We believe that distance forces people needing to find
the right lawyer to do more research, as they've not been bombarded
with billboards, daytime TV commercials & sports-radio ads by mass-marketing
attorneys. The "research" theory is also supported by the fact
that a stout number of our clients are highly educated or street-wise.
Ph. D.'s, professors, engineers, programmers and lawyers often seem
to find us, as do the street-wise—including firefighters and roughnecks,
teachers and preachers, and soccer moms and truckers.
You may be wondering whether or not it will be problematic to be located
far from Dallas. The answer is absolutely not. First, we represent clients
in every corner of Texas, and every acre of North Dakota, from our Dallas office.
You shouldn't be surprised if
personally travels over a thousand miles to visit the scene of your injury
before he has even asked you to sign a contract to make it official. Oh, and we have
never asked a client to reimburse us for the costs we invest in coming to meet
you and study the location before we are hired to be your lawyers. Choosing
the right attorney to work with on important cases is too personal and
too crucial a decision to make in the dark. Letting you see who we are
is an investment we are always glad to make at our own cost.
Second, we've brought many cases to notable conclusions without our
clients having ever stepped foot in our office. It just isn't necessary
most of the time.
Third, it can be very hard to predict where a lawsuit will be brought until
the matter is analyzed. For example, imagine the common case where an
18 wheeler hauling oil rig equipment causes a terrible accident a few
miles from the well site. It might not be that the proper or wisest place
to bring the lawsuit will be right where the accident happened. Such cases
always merit an evaluation of other counties and states that might also
be proper. We've reached notable resolutions in settlement and at
trial under the laws of Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, North Dakota,
Pennsylvania, Virginia and many others.
How Much Will It Cost to Hire Lenahan Law Firm?
Rest Assured, We Have NEVER Asked a Client to Write Us a Check.
You may have heard the phrases, "Pay only if there is a recovery"
or "We only get paid if you do," but the State Bar of Texas's
preferred term for expressing our payment arrangement is "Contingency
fee, plus court costs & expenses." This means that not one of
our clients has ever had to write us a check. Instead, we invest time,
money and soul into trying to get you the best result we can. If we succeed
in recovering money for you, we get to keep the agreed upon percentage
as our fee. We are also then reimbursed from that money for court costs
and expenses. Take a look here for more information about the
Awards & Testimonials
What do they really mean?
This website, like many others, is decorated with references to some of
the many awards and honors Mr. Lenahan and the Lenahan Law Firm have earned.
Some are big, big deals. Others really aren't that hard to come by.
The truth is, though we are proud of those acknowledgments and are grateful
for every single one of them, it is important to understand what they
really mean. Look toward our
clients' testimonials to see the personal stories behind the awards.

Marc joined the Advisory Board for the
National Crime Victim Bar Association in 2008, and has served ever since. The National Crime Victim Bar Association
usually has about two dozen Board Members from across the nation, and
a membership of hundreds of attorneys. It is a branch of
The National Center for Victims of Crime. For the entirety of 2014, Attorney Lenahan served as its President.
President & Vice President
of the Texas Brain Injury Alliance
The Texas Brain Injury Alliance is the new name for the Brain Injury Association
of Texas. Marc has served on the
Board of The Brain Injury Association of Texas since 2010. He is the only attorney on the board, which is composed of
about a dozen people, and includes survivors of brain injuries, family
TBI survivors, and medical professionals.
Named to the
list in 2009

Texas Monthly magazine. Marc was first named a "Super Lawyer" in 2009, and

rating from AVVO
AVVO contains the most complete list of reviews posted directly by our
clients, whereas the ones you'll find on our testimonials page aggregated
copies of reviews from all over, thank-you letters and emails, and testimony
in court about our services. The Advertising Review Committee of the State
Bar of Texas approved the description of these reviews as, "The best
client reviews on AVVO.com," and we thank our clients for that. And
now that Marc is licensed in North Dakota, he is also the best AVVO-reviewed
injury attorney there, too.
Million & Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum®
The Million Dollar Advocates Forum and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates
Forum badges on our site denote Marc's membership, which were awarded
in 2009, and are lifetime memberships.
Invited to join The Top 100 Trial Lawyers
Marc was also offered membership in its role of Top 100 Texas Civil Attorneys
in 2007 by The National Trial Lawyers. He has remained on that list ever since.
First, no amount of awards means that we're the right law firm for
you. Nor does any amount of
million-dollar results really tell you if the lawyers that obtained them did anything they should
be proud of or if they are the right lawyers for you. Closing a case for
a million dollars isn't impressive if most lawyers could have achieved
the same result. And it is downright shameful if the right attorneys would
have closed it for $3,000,000.
Find Out What Lenahan Law Firm Can Do for You
Finding a lawyer is a personal decision. If you need us, we hope that we
are right for you, but we want you to make that decision after you've
had the chance to talk with us, research us, and get a real sense of who
we are. Second, there are many great attorneys who we respect completely,
but who have no awards at all -- though they are wonderful at what they
do. But, unfortunately, there are also far too many lawyers who we would
not trust to ethically handle even the simplest case, though they have
an impressive sounding list of credentials.
Awards simply don't tell the whole story. We hope that you invest a
few moments to study the many generous
testimonials by our clients. It is our opinion that there is not another firm in Texas
that can match them. Why is the Lenahan Law Firm the grateful beneficiary
of so many heartfelt testimonials when we represent far fewer clients?
Because, we believe that representing fewer clients
is the best way to take care of every client.
