Houston Business and Personal Injury Attorney
Meet Cliff Walston
Having grown up running the halls of his father’s law firm in Beaumont selling Cub Scout popcorn, Cliff has been around lawyers and law firms his entire life. Sometimes he wonders why he was drawn to this crazy profession, but deep down he knows the answer is simple: a passion for serving others in the law is simply in his blood.
After receiving a full academic scholarship to the University of Texas, Cliff couldn’t pack his bags for Austin fast enough. There he graduated with honors from the Business Honors Program at the McCombs School of Business, with a specialization in Finance. Cliff then graduated from the University of Texas School of Law, also with honors.
Cliff believes his technical business background provides him a much deeper understanding of the impact of litigation on his clients, not just in the courtroom, but also in the boardroom where the critical business decisions get made. This insight has served his clients well, ranging from large international corporations to family owned business that are the backbone of our country’s economy.
Cliff has also represented individuals and families who have lost loved ones in catastrophic accidents, whether from negligence or defective products. The serious injury or death of a loved one is a life changing event that no one should be forced to endure, and Cliff takes great pride in aggressively seeking the justice his clients deserve.
Cliff brings his diversity of legal experience to the table for the benefit of his clients. He is a former partner of one the top litigation boutiques in the country and has served as the General Counsel for a leading oil & gas advisory firm.
Throughout his legal career, Cliff yearned for “a better way” of doing things. In 2016, with a great deal of faith, he launched Walston Bowlin with his great friend and colleague, Josh Bowlin. Together they look forward to serving clients with their unique blend of talent, energy, and passion.
