Personal Background

A good trial lawyer educates a jury on the issues before them, and like a favorite teacher, does it without making it seem like a chore. Tom Wright does both. Tom has a Ph.D. in chemistry and is a former Professor of Chemistry. He taught at the Austin and Arlington campuses of the University of Texas, as well as a stint at The Imperial College of Science and Technology of the University of London where he was awarded a postdoctoral fellowship by Prof. Sir Geoffrey Wilkinson, winner of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Tom was invited to lecture at universities across the United States and in Europe. In addition to serving as Of Counsel for Howard & Spaniol, PLLC, Mr. Wright also founded and manages his firm, Induction-IP, PLLC and was previously a partner with both trial boutiques and a several-hundred lawyer firm.
