After working over 21 years and becoming a partner at a highly respected Austin boutique litigation firm, I founded my own private practice, The Law Firm of T. Wade Jefferies, to help individuals and businesses throughout Texas efficiently resolve commercial, civil, divorce, and family law disputes.

I am an accomplished and seasoned litigator who focuses on commercial litigation, civil litigation and family law throughout Texas. I have represented numerous individuals in multi-million dollar disputes including representing a real estate company against John Wooley, Schlotzsky's CEO at the time; representing a well known Austin architect and builder in settling a Judgment obtained by Sandra Bullock; representing a competitor of Waste Management Services in a lawsuit against Waste Management Services; representing a partner in an Austin-based consulting firm to life insurance companies in a lawsuit against his partner; and representing a multi-national health supplement provider in a dispute against his partner. I was also an integral part of a team of lawyers who obtained a $180 million judgment against Health Net, Inc, a large California based health care provider.

I have also represented several businesses as their "outside" in-house counsel.

In addition, I have successfully handled numerous family law matters. I have represented numerous high-wealth individuals going through a divorce. In one case, after trial, the Court granted my client over 60% of the community estate plus close to $100,000.00 in attorney's fees. In numerous high-asset divorce cases, I have represented the wives with husbands who own successful businesses. The husbands generally claim that the businesses have no real value. With my accounting background and commercial litigation experience, I was able to determine the actual value of the business and reach a settlement favorable to my clients. Going through a divorce several years ago, I was exactly where my family law clients are and, because of that, I can offer empathy and help in a way that is unique and solution-oriented.

My accounting background coupled with the breadth and depth of legal experience provides me with the ability to efficiently and effectively represent my commercial, civil and family law clients. I am peer rated AV Preeminent by my peers defined as "the highest peer rating standard. This rating signifies that a large number of the lawyer's peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence for their legal knowledge, communication skills, and ethical standards." I am also a Fellow of the Litigation Counsel of America. The Litigation Counsel of America is an invitation-only trial lawyer honorary society established to reflect the new face of the American bar. Membership is limited to 3,500 Fellows, representing less than one-half of one percent of American lawyers.
