Celebrating Excellence

Co-founders of Perdue & Kidd Trial Lawyers, Jim Perdue, Jr., and Donald Kidd, built our Houston-based firm on the foundation that when you do things the right way, with honesty and integrity, you win for your client. We are dedicated to a highly client-centric approach but with the expertise and scope to provide excellent representation throughout Texas and the nation. Jim has won dozens of jury verdicts including high-profile cases that garnered nationwide attention. We are honored to be recognized for our service to plaintiffs and proud to achieve successful outcomes through an individualized approach and fierce advocacy for those who have been harmed by the wrongdoing of others. Helping people with personal injury and medical malpractice claims get justice is what we live for.
