“Robert’s experience and expertise are a real plus to our litigation practice,” said Jordan Parker, chairman of the firm’s Litigation Section, in a news release. “His diverse docket and his ability and desire to mentor younger lawyers will help our mission to grow the firm while we celebrate our 135th anniversary.”

When not practicing, Aldrich webcasts real-time weather reports for Possum Kingdom Lake from his lake house’s weather station.

Aldrich holds Texas Board of Legal Specialization certifications in Civil Trial Law and Personal Injury Trial Law. According to the release, Aldrich has tried cases on both sides of the docket, from death and serious bodily injury, to commercial fraud, breach of fiduciary duty and real estate disputes. Additionally, he has done some work in divorce actions.
