National Recognition

In 1997, Mr. Willis was involved in one of the nation’s first Firestone ATX Radial Tread / Belt Separation and Ford Explorer rollover cases which occurred in Texas. A product liability lawsuit was filed in 1998 against Ford and Firestone due to the Ford Explorer going out of control and rolling after the rear left Firestone ATX radial tire’s tread came off. After a long battle with Ford Motor Company and Firestone, a confidential settlement was reached by all parties. On July 17, 2001 Mr. Willis was recognized as one of a very select group of product liability attorneys in the nation and was awarded the prestigious Steven J. Sharp Public Service Award for his contributions in investigating and gathering evidence pertaining to tire belt separation and vehicle rollovers in Firestone Tire and Ford Explorer Cases. The efforts by these selected attorneys and others helped lead to the largest recall in U.S. history. This award was presented to Mr. Willis by the President of the Association of Trial Lawyers of America.

Our Commitment

    “My firm is committed to representing individuals and families who have been the victims of a wrongful death or serious personal injury on America’s roads and highways due to negligence or the faulty design of an automotive product. Although monetary compensation cannot heal the emotional and physical scars left as the result of a serious accident, it can help in many cases to relieve much of the economic stress and hardship associated with the injury or loss of a loved one. Many times it is the only means of support and future security for the injured individual and their family. Litigation may not bring back a loved one, or heal a serious injury, but it may serve to help prevent others from having to endure the same loss.”
