Naman Howell Elects Larry D. Warren Firm President


Naman Howell is pleased to announce the election of Larry D. Warren as the Firm’s new President, by a unanimous vote of the Firm’s members. Previously the Executive Committee Member for the San Antonio office, Warren succeeds J.K. Leonard who will be transitioning out of the firm to focus on a mediation practice. Warren is only the second President of the Firm outside the original offices in Waco, Texas.

“I am extremely pleased that Larry Warren will be taking over as the President of Naman Howell”, said Leonard. “I have known Larry for 35 years and have practiced with him for over 25 years. I can’t think of anyone more capable to lead this growing firm - he’s a great lawyer and an even better man. Larry is without a doubt the right person to be the Firm’s next President.”

“It is both humbling and a tremendous honor to have been selected by my partners to serve as the Firm’s President,” said Warren. “I am fortunate to have so many remarkable examples of successful leadership all around me at Naman Howell and plan on working very hard to continue growing the Firm’s reputation for quality work provided by some of the most talented attorneys in Texas. Naman Howell is uniquely positioned to offer its clients quality legal work throughout the state of Texas and maintain the level of personal attention that so many find lacking in today’s world. I truly believe the future is very bright for Naman Howell and look forward to helping lead this outstanding organization.”

Based in San Antonio, TX, Larry Warren joined Naman Howell in 2011. His 35+ years of experience includes a broad range of diverse litigation and counseling matters involving primarily matters relating to transportation, tractor/trailer accidents, construction matters, and commercial litigation. He is Board Certified in Personal Injury Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and a Fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers.

He has also been listed as a Texas Super Lawyer by Thomson Reuters for the past 15 years.
