In Memory of Jack Phoummarath
We recently represented the family of Jack Phoummarath, a young man at the University of Texas who died as a result of a fraternity hazing incident. Our experienced attorneys were able to obtain a substantial monetary settlement for Jack’s family, which they have used to promote awareness about the dangers of binge drinking and hazing. Additionally, Jack’s fraternity brothers participated in a family- and law firm-sponsored educational anti-hazing video as part of the settlement agreement, designed to help educate students and administrators and to reduce such incidents in the future.
As a result of the settlement we obtained in this fraternity hazing lawsuit, we were also able to donate $160,000 to the Texas State Bar Client Security Fund, established to compensate victims of dishonest lawyers.
Nothing can bring back Jack, but we hope that these efforts will help to prevent other families from experiencing such grief.
