Jeb Golinkin is an experienced trial lawyer and advocate who takes pride in his ability to win for his clients in the courtroom. Since graduating from The University of Texas School of Law in 2013, Jeb has handled and won multiple jury trials, and helped his clients avoid other trials altogether by prevailing on summary judgment.
Since joining JLC, Jeb’s experience includes:
- Secured unanimous multimillion-dollar jury verdict for publicly traded technology company in RICO and theft of trade secret case in federal jury trial.
- Achieved unanimous jury verdict for major manufacturer and military contractor in trademark infringement and false designation of origin (Lanham Act) jury trial in state district court.
- Obtained unanimous jury verdict against contractor in state court for violations of the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act.
- Briefed and argued successful motion for summary judgment on federal antitrust claims for major manufacturer and military contractor.

Before joining Jordan, Lynch & Cancienne, Jeb worked as a trial associate at Andrews Kurth, LLP (now Hunton Andrews Kurth). While there, Jeb served as co-lead arbitration counsel in a favorable commercial arbitration trial. Jeb also obtained numerous favorable jury verdicts as a volunteer prosecutor for the City of Houston.
Prior to that, he served as a law clerk to United States District Judge James R. Nowlin in the Austin Division of the Western District of Texas. During this time, he served as Judge Nowlin’s Briefing Attorney on cases involving subjects such as securities fraud, insider trading, the constitutionality of regulations concerning online gambling, allegations of unlawful retaliation, and questions involving matters of complex contractual interpretation. Jeb’s experience enables him to provide valuable insights into the judiciary system and weigh-in on complex issues that his current clients face in litigation.
Jeb approaches every challenge with efficiency in mind. His aggressive, get-it-done attitude has been an invaluable asset at the trial-focused practice of JLC.
