DALLAS, Aug. 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Founding attorney Charla Aldous has dedicated her professional life to fighting for clients who have been harmed or wronged by the actions of someone else. Over her 30+ year career, she has tried over 250 jury trials to a verdict. Aldous has tried a wide variety of catastrophic personal injury and wrongful death cases representing victims of medical negligence, defective products, or the gross negligence of profit-driven corporations who fail to put safety first. Aldous has also tried complex commercial cases, including obtaining a $366 million verdict that was one of the top 10 verdicts in the country for a professional who was defamed, representing an investor who lost millions of dollars through a Ponzi scheme, and seeking justice for a physician who was discriminated against based on his religion and ethnicity, leading to the largest verdict in employment law in Texas in 2010.
This is Aldous' fourth time being named the "Lawyer of the Year." She also earned the award from Best Lawyers® in 2009 for Personal Injury Litigation, and in 2013 and 2016 for Medical Malpractice Law – Plaintiffs.
Along with her decades-long track record of success in the courtroom, Aldous spends much of her time working with the legal community in Texas and across the United States as through her service as an Executive Committee member of the Dallas Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates, and as a member of the International Society of Barristers, the International Academy of Trial Lawyers, and the Texas Trial Lawyers Association. Aldous is also a proud member of the distinguished Inner Circle of Advocates, an invitation-only group of 100 of the nation's top plaintiff lawyers.
