Steve Gibbins is an experienced trial attorney focusing his practice on representing plaintiffs who have been the victims of personal injuries, car accidents, defamation, medical malpractice, wrongful death, and police abuse. Mr. Gibbins' offices are located in Austin, Texas and he provides legal services to clients throughout the state, including in Houston and Dallas.
Mr. Gibbins has been representing injured plaintiffs for over thirty years. His civil case verdicts and settlements have been very substantial, in the past. Since that time, he has won almost every case he has taken to trial. Mr. Gibbins is passionate about helping clients who have a sincere desire to obtain a just and fair recovery, and he genuinely values his client's opinions; without the combination of his judgment and their assistance, he could not have obtained such stellar verdicts and settlements. As an example of verdicts which he has obtained, he brought a civil rights lawsuit against the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles, and a prison parole employee who sexually abused certain inmates including two clients of Mr. Gibbins who were abused during interviews with him while in prison. In a single trial, Mr. Gibbins obtained a Judgment for these clients against the officer totalling $4.1 million---specifically, 2.2 million for one client and 1.9 million for the other. But that individual defendant declared bankruptcy and nothing was ultimately recovered from him or the bankruptcy court, and the Board of Pardons and Paroles subsequently settled for $95,000. Out of that amount, $14,353.16 went to one of the clients and the other client received $18,103.16, after expenses and attorneys fees were deducted.
Steve Gibbins was born in Austin, Texas and is a longtime resident of the state. He received both his undergraduate and law degrees from the University of Texas at Austin.
