Art Aguilar is an aggressive young trial lawyer. Art’s experience includes, among many others, commercial litigation, construction litigation, insurance coverage litigation, assisting in appellate proceedings, and his favorite (bread and butter practice) personal injury defense. He has experience representing insurance carriers in catastrophic personal injury, and wrongful death cases. Similarly, Art has assisted in several insurance coverage disputes, ranging from minor car wrecks to million-dollar claims.

Art has pre-trial and trial experience, all of which ranges from contested motion hearings, complex dispositive motion practice, taking and defending depositions, pre-trial proceedings, picking juries, presenting and cross-examining witnesses, and arguing the jury charge. He has also assisted in trials involving a mixed bag of issues, including breach of contract, fraud, DTPA, personal injury claims, and trade secrets.

Ultimately, Art has learned a primary motivating factor: zealous advocacy to achieve the client’s goals, and nothing less. Clients may rest assured that their interests will be properly defended or prosecuted.

Art received his JD from the University of Houston Law Center (Go Coogs!) where he was an articles editor on the Houston Journal of Health Law & Policy. He received a Master of Public Policy and his undergraduate degree in Government from what is now known as the University of Texas at Rio Grande Valley (formerly University of Texas at Brownsville).

A strong believer in public service, Art has held many positions within the federal and local branches of government, some of which include, externing for a federal judge, interning for a federal agency in Washington D.C., sitting on a local government committee, and serving as a high school teacher. Additionally, he routinely engages in pro-bono matters for those who lack the ability to protect their own interests.

When not practicing law, Art can be found running the loop at memorial park, or (if in football season) watching a live college football game somewhere in Texas.
