Practicing primarily in areas of tort defense and commercial litigation, his experience includes the representation of an electric utility in complex litigation arising from the most destructive wildfire in Texas’ history; a restaurant accused of serving toxic shellfish; a railroad contractor following a derailment; and commercial drivers and their companies accused of negligence.

As an adjunct professor at St. Mary’s University School of Law, he taught legal research and writing for seven years. Graham began his career in the law as a briefing attorney to the Hon. Sandee Bryan Marion of Texas’ Fourth Court of Appeals.

            Before coming to the law, Graham was a newspaper reporter, photographer, volunteer firefighter, and advocate for the mentally ill.
