Robert D. Clements, Jr.


Robert D. Clements, Jr. is a firm courtroom presence—aggressive when necessary but always aware that people’s lives are in the balance. His goal is to provide the same counsel and same protection to each client that he would give when representing a close friend or family member. Understanding that—even when a litigant’s choice is painful—bad counsel and bad decision-making can seriously exacerbate their losses. Though the United States courtroom is unequaled in the world, it can inflict devastating injury if not handled properly.

Robert graduated from the Creighton University College of Law, Cum Laude, in 1981. His last year of law school he attended Southern Methodist University. After six years with an extremely successful Plaintiff’s law firm and three years with Britt, Todd, Hagood & Clements, he founded the Law Office of Robert D. Clements, Jr., in 1989. Though he has handled cases all over the State of Texas, he works primarily in Harris, Galveston, and Brazoria county.

Mr. Clements has gained a reputation for skillfully handling difficult and hotly contested litigation where the stakes are high—financially or emotionally. He has represented estates and businesses worth millions of dollars, families in crisis, injured workers and drivers, and homeowners against their insurance company.
