“We feel extremely fortunate to be able to bring Mark Willingham on board to lead the firm’s new office in Houston.” Crane said of Willingham. “His litigation success record, outstanding reputation and strong local ties will be valuable assets to the firm as we expand in Texas.”

Mr. Willingham has litigated and coordinated intricate multi-state and federal litigation and class-action claims for companies across the country. He has acted as trial counsel, national trial counsel, national coordinating counsel, and outside general counsel in different jurisdictions throughout the nation.

“Over the course of my career, I’ve come to know many of the attorneys at Segal McCambridge and have always been impressed with the tough yet congenial way they litigate their cases and their history of success in the courtroom,” said Willingham.  “Joining Segal McCambridge in Houston allows us to share resources with the common goal of further expanding the work we are already doing in Texas and across the country.”
