BIOGRAPHY

Joe Jamail, Jr. was born in United States. Joe Jamail Jr., a scotch-loving lawyer with a wit quick for his 89 years, is the wealthiest practicing attorney in the nation. The "King of Torts," as he's sometimes called, is still taking cases, and in his several decades in the courtroom, he's won five verdicts for over $100 million and more than two hundred for at least $1 million. More are in the pipeline, he says. He built his Texas practice on personal injury cases but is best known for representing Pennzoil against Texaco in the oil giants' high-profile legal battle in 1987. He won $10.5 billion for Pennzoil and personally pocketed $345 million in contingency fees. In 2012 the Tarlton Law Library at the University of Texas acquired the case's transcripts for students to study it. With his late wife Lee, he established the Lee and Joseph D. Jamail Foundation in 1986, through which he has given millions to education, medical research and the performing arts. He estimates he's given a total of $216 million in his lifetime. The Baylor College of Medicine announced in 2013 that its outpatient clinic on the McNair Campus would be named the Lee and Joe Jamail Specialty Care Center to honor them. He's a graduate of the University of Texas system and has poured millions into its public university network.
