Tillotson Law Firm

United States 2024


Content is provided by the firm.

Few lawyers in the country have as much complex litigation experience as Jeff Tillotson. Even fewer have as much trial experience

in complex multi-party cases. For example, over the past few years alone, Jeff has been the lead lawyer in over a dozen major

multi-party cases brought in courts in nine different states for clients such as the nation's largest consumer finance company, its third

largest bank, its second largest credit card issuer and 40 of the nation's leading industrial concerns. These cases involved all

possible aspects of complex litigation -- multiple parties, competing venues, extensive discovery, complex strategy and intense

media scrutiny. The cases were profiled in publications like The Wall Street Journal and People Magazine as well as in television

media like Nightline and CBS Evening News. Jeff's experience with reputation management in the media has helped cultivate

victory for his clients.

Jeff has successfully handled numerous cases on appeal. Over the past few years, he argued cases before the Second, Fifth and

Ninth Circuit Courts of Appeal, as well as the Texas Court of Appeals for Dallas, Eastland, Tyler and Corpus Christi.

A native Texan, Jeff was born in San Antonio, Texas. His forebears settled in Texas generations ago, and his

great-great-great-great-great grandfather, Jose Antonio Navarro, was a signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence, a drafter

of the Texas Constitution, one of the first elected to the Texas Congress and later its Senate and the namesake for Navarro County

in East Texas.
