Biography

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.

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.

2 Questions Answered
Q. Are verbal real estate contracts binding in Texas? My dad’s name isn’t on the deed of LeaseToOwn that’s being sold.
A: The statute of frauds requires that all contracts for the sale of land be reduced to writing. It sounds like your dad would have to file suit to quiet title to the property, and allege an unjust enrichment cause of action, which is probably the only claim in equity he can prove that payments came from him. It sounds like you may have some good proof of him making payments and even remodeling. Your dad has 4 years to bring the claim from when the "breach" occurred. I encourage you to contact a lawyer as soon as possible so that they may more thoroughly advise you of your rights.
Q. I just found the court case number that awarded me $5.5 million from the ins. Co that my lawyer said did not exist I
A: Hey there, this matter seems pretty serious. Can I ask, what exactly is your question here? Do you seek to recoup the funds?
