Meet Ray Thomas

Ray Thomas is rated by his peers as one of the best lawyers in the country. Regarded as a “lawyers’ lawyer”, his A-List client base includes other lawyers, judges and legislators. Peers seek his advice and counsel and often invite him to participate on significant cases. Board-certified in Civil Trial Law, Ray Thomas has tried over 100 cases and won dozens of million and multi-million dollar jury verdicts for his clients. Several of these jury verdicts have been recognized in The National Law Journal, ALM’s Top Texas Verdicts and Southwest Verdicts Hall of Fame.


Ray is the go-to lawyer in South Texas–not just because of his outstanding courtroom skills and legendary charm, or because he is connected with everyone in the Valley. Ray’s care and faith make him someone we all trust. For 20 years, I’ve watched Ray lead organizations, donate his time and money to worthy causes, and make impassioned courtroom arguments. All in all, Ray is the complete lawyer and person.

On behalf of a major corporate client, I interview, hire, and work with attorneys all across the country. As a result of that work, I am privileged to meet and work with the finest people and best lawyers out there–Ray Thomas is right at the top of that list. Ray is not only one of the best lawyers in the state of Texas, he is without hesitation one of the best lawyers in the United States.
Thomas Walk Salt Lake City
I have known Ray since he first started trying cases and watched him grow personally and professionally. He is an outstanding trial lawyer, a great husband and father, and a credit to South Texas and the state of Texas. He also is a person of great faith and integrity whose word is his bond, and he exemplifies all those virtues and values that we respect and aspire to be in supporting the Rule of Law in America.
Hugh Hackney Dallas
Having worked with and against Ray in several matters, I can say from experience that he has that rare combination of high intellect and the ability to clearly distill complex disputes into clear and persuasive jury arguments. More importantly, his colleagues, opponents and the courts can and do rely upon his word as he ethically and zealously advocates for his clients.

George Phair Blanco
Ray Thomas is widely considered one of the finest trial lawyers in Texas. He is always prepared, always takes the fight to the opponent and is extremely persuasive. True persuasiveness comes from only one source–integrity, and Ray's life defines integrity. 
Michael Guerra McAllen
Ray Thomas has proven through the years that he is the go-to trial lawyer in the Valley. His dedication and commitment are second to none and it shows because of the results he gets for his clients. Ray is a master of time travel the way he coordinates his practice with family time and giving back to the community. Ray Thomas is a lawyer's lawyer. We don't go to the Valley without consulting Ray Thomas.
Terry Scarborough Austin
Superb lawyer; really connects with the jury.
Edward Murphy Houston
I have known Ray for twenty-five years and have had the privilege to observe him, fight side-by-side with him and fight against him. That his peers have selected him for Super Lawyers every year the past decade is no surprise to those of us who know him. He is among the nation's best.
