Wrongful Death

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

Service. Education. Experience.

Service. The goal of most personal injury firms is to sign as many cases as they possibly can. We reject that model. Too many cases means overworked attorneys and paralegals, infrequent communication with clients, and improperly worked cases. We intentionally limit the amount of cases we handle. This allows us to maintain constant contact with our clients and address their needs. Also, with fewer cases, all of our resources can be directed at maximizing the value of each and every case we take on. Better service leads to happier clients and better results.

Education. Michael and Pete both graduated from the University of Texas, which is the best law school in Texas and one of the top fifteen law schools in the country. So when you hire us, you know that the attorney working on your case is working from the foundation of a top notch legal education.

Experience. Both Michael and Pete started their legal career with high powered firms handling complex litigation often valued in the tens (if not hundreds) of millions of dollars. As such, Michael and Pete were trained by exceptional lawyers who demanded the highest quality of work for their clients. The training they received in this high stakes, demanding environment is now put to work for the benefit of our clients. This becomes evident in the way we litigate and prepare our cases for trial. In short, we believe our firm can out work any attorneys we face.

Our education and experience coupled with our commitment to service separates us from the pages upon pages of personal injury attorneys you will find on Google.

Michael Lovins

Lovins Trosclair

Michael Lovins was born and raised in South Dakota. After graduating from high school in Rapid City, he came to Texas as quickly as he could to attend Southern Methodist University. In 1997, SMU awarded Michael a bachelors degree with honors in Economics and Philosophy. Michael then worked as a financial analyst, trying to convince himself that he did not want to be a lawyer. He was successful as a financial analyst, but the desire to practice law remained, and he began law school at The University of Texas in 1998. Michael graduated from The University of Texas Law School in 2001. Immediately following law school, Michael landed a highly coveted job as a briefing attorney to U.S. Federal Judge James R. Nowlin, who was then the Chief Judge for the Western District of Texas. Michael then spent 4 1/2 years as an attorney with the law firm McGinnis, Lochridge & Kilgore, LLP (now known as McGinnis Lochridge, LLP), one of the most highly respected firms in Texas. While at McGinnis, Lochridge & Kilgore, Lovins litigation career started as the associate representing a coal mining company in a complex, multi-venue dispute with a major Texas energy company. Lovins continued working in high value, complex commercial disputes representing financial institutions, major retailers, and energy companies, as well as small businesses. In March 2007, Michael decided to focus his practice primarily on assisting individuals and small businesses who have been harmed by the irresponsibility, carelessness, indifference, or maliciousness of others. This decision precipitated the founding of The Law Offices of Michael E. Lovins. In August of 2010, Michael partnered with Pete Trosclair to further his efforts to help individuals and small businesses with their litigation needs. Michael lives in Austin, Texas, with his wife of fifteen years and their two daughters and one son.
