This well-known firm of trial lawyers has added a top appellate practice and changed our name to Johnston Tobey Baruch. Our Texas trial and appellate lawyers are pioneers in the handling of cases involving legal and accounting malpractice, investment fraud, and insurance bad faith. We also handle business disputes, commercial litigation, and fiduciary litigation, as well as civil, family and criminal appeals. Johnston Tobey Baruch serves as the litigation arm of several prominent Texas companies and high net-worth individuals.

The name change was occasioned by the addition of top Texas appellate attorney Chad Baruch. This was a case of quality meeting quality. Chad is highly experienced at family, civil and criminal appeals, as well as a wide variety of business litigation matters. All four attorneys at Johnston Tobey Baruch have been selected to Best Lawyers in America, made one of the Texas Super Lawyers lists and D Magazine’s Best Lawyers in Dallas. Three of the four are Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization — Randy Johnston in Civil Trial Law, Robert Tobey in Consumer and Commercial Law and Chad Baruch in Civil Appellate Law.

“This firm works as a team on almost all of our cases,” says Randy Johnston, Managing Shareholder of JTB. “It is extremely important in most instances for an appellate lawyer to enter the case at the beginning, so he can expertly preserve the record when you feel that the case may go on appeal. Now we have that outstanding appellate attorney within the firm. We have a superstar at every juncture in these cases, all within the firm.”

We are now in the process of constructing a new website that reflects the expanded vision of the new firm. This website will fill this space in stages. Keep in touch.
