ADMISSIONS & AFFILIATIONS
Jonny Havens is a seasoned and proven trial lawyer, who represents injured people and family members of people who have died. He has obtained multimillion dollar settlements and jury verdicts on behalf of plaintiffs. Jonny has successfully defended clients at trial against some of the best law firms in the country.
Jonny is a native Houstonian and graduated from Texas A&M University where he served in the Corps of Cadets and learned the discipline that he applies to the practice of law.
After college, Jonny served five years on active duty in the U.S. Army and earned his Ranger Tab as an infantry officer. During his time in service, Jonny developed a commitment to excellence that he has applied in every endeavor and case since. During two deployments to Iraq, Jonny practiced servant leadership by putting his soldiers first. He practices law the same way—client first. He was awarded the Bronze Star Medal twice for his service in Iraq and earned the Combat Infantryman Badge among other awards. In combat, Jonny sharpened his penchant to fight back, no matter the odds. He applies that same mentality to his clients’ cases – no company or dispute is too big to be taken on and held accountable.
Following his service in the Army, Jonny graduated from Duke University School of Law. While attending law school, Jonny also served in the National Guard as a “black hat,” or an officer who trains enlisted soldiers to be officers.
Jonny began his law career at Baker Botts, where he handled cases with hundreds of millions of dollars at stake and tried cases involving personal injuries, wrongful death, breach of contract, and bad faith insurance claims. Jonny’s military and combat experience coupled with his top-notch legal education and experience make him a formidable foe in the courtroom.
Jonny started his own firm to use his unique combat and legal experiences to help injured people and wronged businesses fight back. Jonny is committed to using his unique experiences to achieve the very best outcome for his clients.
When he is not fighting on behalf of his clients, Jonny enjoys spending time with his wife, Anna, and their three amazing daughters. He also serves the veteran community through his volunteer work as a Board Member of Combined Arms and as co-chair of the Houston Bar Association’s Military and Veteran Committee Veteran’s Group. Jonny is also active in several ministries at St. Anne Catholic Community. Finally, Jonny still serves his country as a JAG officer in the U.S. Army Reserve.
