Experienced Texas attorney who gets the right results for clients

Attorney Sean Tracey

Sean Tracey, managing partner at Tracey Fox & Walters, is a top-tier personal injury and product liability attorney with more than 25 years of experience. A board-certified civil trial and personal injury attorney, he has helped clients throughout Texas and across the United States get compensation in cases involving pharmaceutical mass torts, product liability, traffic accidents, premises liability, toxic tort, birth injury and wrongful death.

"I feel very strongly in this line of work that if you don't want to help people, you shouldn't be doing this."

Sean is not afraid to break new ground to get results for clients. He has fought for injured clients in high-stakes mesothelioma and maritime/Jones Act cases. In 2009, he obtained a favorable settlement in a Paxil® birth defect case after demonstrating that the pharmaceutical company was negligent. The case was the first of its kind. He is a frequent speaker on trial techniques, including jury selection.
