Meet Our Founder

A native of Corpus, Will Lundquist is a civil trial lawyer who focuses his practice exclusively representing individual and commercial insureds in property insurance claims across the country. Will spent his first six years defending insurance companies in property & casualty cases involving bad faith insurance claims and unfair settlement practices at Bracewell LLP, one of the largest and most well-respected law firms in the country. During that time, he served as coverage counsel for AIG, Fortis, UniCare, WellPoint and Assurant, along with their various affiliated insurance companies. Not satisfied with fighting for insurers, Will left Bracewell in 2009 to chair a plaintiff-insurance litigation group at Clark, Love & Hutson GP that assisted numerous corporate and individual clients in both state and federal court. Will was Co-Liaison Counsel in several counties for the thousands of lawsuits arising out of Hurricane Ike commercial and residential insurance claims, and his firm served on Plaintiff Steering Committees for various MDLs created to manage the Hurricane Ike litigation. Will favorably settled hundreds of commercial and residential TWIA cases over the past 8 years for his firm, and left to open the Lundquist Law Firm in 2017.

Throughout the years, Will has received continued recognition for his expertise in litigating property insurance claims. He was named a Texas Rising Star (a Thomson Reuters service) 6 separate years (2008, 2011-2015) – less than 2.5% of all lawyers under age 40 practicing in Texas receive this designation. Since 2015, Will has also been named a Texas Super Lawyer (a Thomson Reuters service) – an honor bestowed on less than 5% of all lawyers practicing in Texas. These annual selections are made using a patented multiphase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area. Since 2013, Will has held a rating of “AV Preeminent” in the national Lexis-Nexis Martindale-Hubbell legal directory. The “AV” rating is the highest possible Martindale-Hubbell rating, and is “a testament to the fact that a lawyer’s peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence.” Less than 5% of all lawyers in the country have received this rating. Additionally, Will has been featured in several nationwide publications by Legal Leaders as a “Top Rated Lawyer,” recently receiving an award from American Registry as one of “America’s Most Honored Professionals.” Since 2015, Will has been selected by Rue Ratings as one of the “Best Attorneys in America” based on his “extraordinary level of legal expertise, competency, professional reputation and ethical standards.” This distinction is extended to the 100 “Best Attorneys” in Texas and to less than one percent (1%) of the most qualified and accomplished attorneys in the country. In addition, Will received the Distinguished Lawyer Designation© from The Expert Network in 2016 and 2017, which is “only conferred upon the Top 3% of lawyers in the nation.” Locally, Will has been named as a “Top Lawyer in Houston – Insurance Litigation” by Houstonia Magazine every year since 2014.
