Attorney and Counselor at Law
Jeff Laird grew up in Beaumont, Texas, graduating in 1984 from West Brook High School. He then attended Lamar University in Beaumont, obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Political Science and Minor in History in 1987. Following his lifelong dream of becoming a lawyer, he attended St. Mary’s University School of Law, graduating in 1991. Following his law school graduation and bar examination, Jeff began working for the Harris County District Attorney’s Office. In that capacity he tried in excess of 100 jury trials, ranging from misdemeanor DWI to Capital Murder, and was entrusted with such positions as the investigation of police officers and the training of young prosecutors.
Following eleven and one-half years as a prosecutor, Jeff decided to redirect his practice of law to the area that he had enjoyed so much while working for an attorney during his college years: Real Estate. Jeff’s practice now focuses on real estate title issues and the preparation of documents used in real estate transactions, from both the individual’s and lender’s perspective. Since January 2003, Jeff has immersed himself in these areas and is highly referred and very well known in Houston for his experience in real estate title issues.
