About Olan

Olan Boudreaux has over 28 years’ experience in the legal field, representing plaintiffs and defendants in virtually every type of civil lawsuit. Throughout his career, he has worked tirelessly for the people, be they his clients, his students, or his associates.

Boudreaux graduated first in his class from South Texas College of Law in the spring of 1984, and scored the highest score of all examinees on the Texas Bar Exam in February 1984. While in law school, Olan was an Associate Editor of the South Texas Law Journal, and he was on the National Mock Trial Team and the ATLA Mock Trial Team. He began a long and impressive track of lecturing and writing while in law school, as well.

Mr. Boudreaux has been invited by his peers as an expert on a variety of subject matters to lecture at countless seminars and programs throughout his career. He is a staple on the Texas Trial Lawyers Association’s lecture roster and has spoken at a myriad of additional organizations’ programs, including various law schools, professional groups, and the State Bar of Texas. Boudreaux also often authors the accompanying materials for such engagements.

He has achieved board certification by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in both civil trial law and personal injury trial law. Of the over 75,000 lawyers in Texas, less than one percent hold both of these certifications. In 2004, Olan was appointed by the President of the State Bar of Texas to the Texas Board of Legal Specialization; he served six years as a member of the board and two terms as the Board's chair.

Olan's peers have recognized his achievements and integrity by electing him into the American Board of Trial Advocates, an organization of distinguished lawyers throughout the United States.
