HOUSTON – Houston-based Pierce & O’Neill, LLP, is pleased to announce that both name partners have earned recognition in the 2024 edition of Chambers USA, a coveted legal guide that is considered to be the most prominent in the industry.

Recognized for the 16th year, trial lawyer Jesse Pierce was honored for his commercial litigation practice in Houston and received national Band 1 rankings – the highest honor – for excellence in oil and gas matters.

Board Certified in Civil Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, Mr. Pierce has nearly 50 years of experience trying cases in state and federal courts, representing both plaintiffs and defendants across all areas of complex litigation, including oil and gas matters, environmental issues, product liability, securities and corporate matters and others.

“Jesse is a terrific lawyer who is well respected by the jury and the court,” one client told Chambers. “He is a diligent, conscientious and detail-oriented lawyer.”

Esteemed litigator Jack O’Neill was also honored for his commercial litigation expertise. With experience trying large complex cases for over 50 years, Mr. O’Neill handles large-scale commercial litigation, including disputes involving energy and trade secret issues. He has successfully tried numerous cases relating to virtually all aspects of the oil and gas business, representing many of the industry’s most prominent companies.

“He has an extraordinary reputation as a trial lawyer,” a client told Chambers. “He is thorough, thoughtful and really thinks through all the different angles and possible approaches of both his and the other side. Jack has this ability to explain positions and to understand complicated fact patterns.”

Both name partners are also repeat honorees by Lawdragon – appearing on its 500 Leading Litigators in America – and The Best Lawyers in America.

In addition to the individual honors, litigation boutique Pierce & O’Neill was again recognized for a second consecutive year in the 2024 Chambers USA Regional Spotlight Texas.
