During law school, Mr. Lindamood was selected to serve as a briefing clerk for The Honorable Judge Joseph "Tad" Halbach in the 333rd District Court of Harris County. He then worked for a civil defense personal injury law firm where he gained valuable experience in this arena.
After graduating from law school, he knew that if he wanted to gain immediate trial experience, it would have to be in the criminal law realm, most likely as a prosecutor. Upon graduation, he took a position with the Wharton County District Attorney's Office as an Assistant District Attorney.

Mr. Lindamood was selected as one of the few prosecutors in the country to attend the prestigious, week-long Trial Skills Seminar put on by the National Trial Attorneys Association in Columbia, South Carolina where the participants performed every aspect of mock trials in front of experienced attorneys from both the Department of Justice as well as the US Attorney's Office (including opening statements, cross-examinations, to closing arguments) as well as participating in the Texas District and County Attorney Association annual seminars for 5 consecutive years.
As a prosecutor, Mr. Lindamood honed his natural abilities as a trial lawyer under the tutelage of one of his mentors (the long-time, elected District Attorney of Wharton County Josh McCown) as well as assisting a multi-departmental law enforcement Drug Task Force.
Mr. Lindamood has tried over 80 jury trials, including criminal cases ranging from First Degree Felonies to Class C Misdemeanors.
He has won over 95% of those trials.
Additionally, he has reviewed and investigated thousands of cases on behalf of the State of Texas.
Mr. Lindamood was promoted to First Assistant District Attorney (reporting directly underneath the elected District Attorney) and held that position for two years before leaving the DA's office to take a position in Houston with the Lanier Law Firm -- as a trial lawyer handling toxic tort cases representing individuals against large corporations.
As a civil trial attorney, Mr. Lindamood has taken hundreds of depositions ranging from the cross-examination of medical experts and industrial hygienists, to cross-examining the designated corporate representatives of multi-national Oil & Gas corporations.
He has also had numerous civil jury trials across the country.
Mr. Lindamood then parlayed his vast trial experience as well as his ability to communicate complex legal concepts into easier-to-understand, plain language and founded the Lindamood Law Firm, and has been able to achieve tremendous results for his clients.
