Roy L. Reeves

royA Judge once remarked to another attorney “Roy is not afraid of a good fight, in fact, trial is the closest thing he can find to combat without getting shot at.”

I took that Judge’s comment as a true compliment, not to myself but to my parents who taught me to work hard, never quit, and always defend those who cannot defend themselves (Semper Vallo). It is also a testament to many years spent in the Marine Corps, including multiple combat tours.

After a few years in the Marine Corps, college was easy. While enrolled at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, studying Criminal Justice, I maintained duties as a Mortar Section Leader with India Company, 3rd BN, 23rd Marines training at Camp Robinson, AR. At UALR I completed 83 Semester hours of college credit in fifteen months before being accepted to Baylor Law School for the Spring Class of 1998.

Following graduation from Baylor Law and passing the Texas Bar exam in 2000, The Law Office of Roy L. Reeves was opened in Kerrville, Texas. I picked my first Felony Jury in the early Spring of 2001 in front of the same Judge quoted above.

The Law Office of Roy L. Reeves served clients from Kerrville to Killeen with offices in both cities until the deployment of troops from Fort Hood in support of the Iraq war. With my main client base deployed, I joined the firm of DeHay & Elliston, L.L.P. in Dallas, Texas where I began working on complex litigation cases involving, premises liability, product defects (building products and pharmaceuticals), and toxic torts.

The Law Office of Roy Reeves was resurrected in 2007 as Reeves Law Firm, P.C. providing the same quality representation and litigation experience to the public in Collin, Dallas, and Denton Counties that was previously reserved for several Fortune 50 companies.
