Wayne Wright LLP is one of the top law firms in the United Sates. It is a nationally recognized multi-state plaintiffs' law firm with an emphasis on personal attention and respect for clients' rights. The firm is the recent recipient of a national prize so rare that only one percent of the nation's trial attorneys ever qualify to receive it - The Litigator Award. The firm was chosen for the honor based on its legal expertise in personal injury law.

Since 1984, the firm has successfully represented thousands of victims in serious personal injury and wrongful death cases due to vehicular accidents, work-related injuries of all types and solicitor fraud.

Wayne Wright, the firm's founder, built his practice on the fundamental principal of respect and justice for all. Numerous awards on the national and local levels throughout the years have recognized his legal expertise, allegiance to ethical standards in the practice of law and the firm's dedication to clients.

Both the National Trial Lawyers Association and The American Trial Lawyers Association have named Wayne Wright one of the top 100 trial lawyers in America. He is a Life Member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. Membership is restricted to lawyers who have won million and multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements for clients. Less than 1% of the nation's lawyers qualify for membership.

According to the San Antonio Business Journal, Wayne Wright LLP has been the largest San Antonio law firm since 2004. Wright's son, Wyatt Wright, has continued the firm's tradition of superior representation for clients injured by accidents. He has been designated a Top 100 Trial Lawyer by the American Trial Lawyers Association and the National Trial Lawyers. He is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates forum and the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum.

The firm has also received numerous awards from other national and state legal groups including the Society of Ethical Attorneys at Law, the National Academy of Personal Injury Attorneys, the American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys, the American Association for Justice and the College of the State Bar of Texas—where less than 4% of Texas lawyers qualify for membership.

The firm is also deeply involved in philanthropy in honor of its mission, “Respect and Justice for All,” the inspiration for its unflagging dedication to community service.

Wayne Wright LLP supports Mothers Against Drunk Driving® (MADD) in its efforts to eradicate drunk and drugged driving, two of the main causes of fatal vehicular accidents in the United States. In San Antonio, Wayne Wright LLP has been a sponsor of the “San Antonio Heroes Zone,” part of MADD's annual local fundraising activities that honors the heroism of law enforcement officers on the front lines of defense against intoxicated drivers.

Since 2006, the firm has donated more than 50,000 smoke alarms to fire departments all over South Texas so they could installed without charge in the homes of low-income families to protect them from deadly house fires.

In 2012, the United Way of San Antonio nominated the Wayne Wright Law Firm for its top award in the Small Business Category in recognition of its numerous philanthropic contributions to the community, including free legal services to the poor through the Community Justice Program and the People's Law School, sponsored by the San Antonio Bar Foundation and St. Mary's University School of Law as well as its charity smoke alarm program, contributions to the military, low-income children and the homeless.

The Wayne Wright law firm's deep belief in education is manifest in its support of LULAC's “Rey Feo” program, a college scholarship fund for underprivileged San Antonio youth. The firm is currently developing a scholarship program, via an essay contest, for high school students to enhance their writing skills and knowledge of the U.S. Constitution.

The firm's support of military organizations serving veterans, active duty troops and reservists has included a weekly blog in the San Antonio Express News, “Wayne Wright: Military Matters,” that has focused attention on the growing needs of America's military across the nation.
