Jon Hanna is a second-generation trial lawyer. While formally educated at The University of Texas and Texas Tech University School of Law, his “real” schooling took place in the county courthouses across West Texas. From 1982 to 1992, Jon tried cases to juries primarily involving on-the-job injuries suffered by working men and women. Eventually that evolved into cases involving catastrophic injuries arising out of operations in the oil fields, in the oilfield service industries, and commercial trucking industry.
For the last 25 years, Jon has successfully litigated thousands of cases for clients injured by 18 wheeler trucks, product manufacturers, automobile accidents, Dram Shop Act (over service of alcohol), and medical negligence. Jon has devoted his practice to the belief that the courtrooms of West Texas are one of the last places on earth where a solitary citizen can fight the largest product manufacturer, the oil industry, or a billion-dollar insurance company, on equal terms. During the 35 years of his practice he has acquired the extensive experience necessary to handle virtually any kind of personal injury, oilfield catastrophe or wrongful death case.
