Jeb Golinkin is a trial lawyer who takes pride in every aspect of his practice, but he especially enjoys fighting for his clients in the courtroom. Since graduating from The University of Texas School of Law in 2013, he has become experienced in all aspects of the litigation process, from pre-lawsuit counseling through trial.

Jeb has served as the lead trial lawyer in a successful commercial arbitration trial and obtained 10+ favorable jury verdicts as a volunteer prosecutor for the City of Houston. He is an effective writer and advocate, and has successfully briefed and argued numerous motions in state and federal courts, including ranging from discovery to dispositive motions.

Before joining Jordan, Lynch & Cancienne, Jeb worked as a trial associate at Andrews Kurth, LLP. For the two years 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 working for Judge Nowlin 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.
