Complaint, Expert Report and Answer by Serpe Andrews, Counsel for HCA Kingwood
Even before he got his law license, the seeds of John Brothers’ work fighting for the rights of personal injury and medical malpractice victims were planted.
A native Texan, he began focusing on medical malpractice cases and personal injury in his second year of law school at the University of Houston, where he earned his law degree after graduating with the highest honors from The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina.
While in law school, John took courses in civil litigation and served as an articles editor for the Houston Journal of Health Law and Policy, one of the leading journals in the field.
He simultaneously clerked at two highly respected medical malpractice and personal injury law firms.
After law school, John was hired by one of those firms and mentored by the managing partner.
Three years later, he was managing a complex docket, and in 2013 was recruited as a partner for what became one of the largest medical practice firms for victims in the state of Texas.
For over a decade, John has handled hundreds of catastrophic personal injury and medical malpractice cases, recovering millions of dollars for victims and their families.
Trusted by clients for his plain-spoken honesty and small-town values; and recognized by peers for his skills, professionalism, and success in complex matters, John is a champion for those who need one the most.
Maggie counsels clients in a broad range of civil matters.
While her focus is primarily based on medical malpractice litigation, she also has vast experience litigating premises liability lawsuits, insurance coverage issues, automobile collision lawsuits, labor and employment matters, and general commercial disputes.
She has litigated cases in Texas, Louisiana, Missouri, and New Mexico.
Maggie received her Louisiana bar license in 2008 and then obtained her Texas license in 2009.
After working in Louisiana and Texas with a regional defense firm, Maggie joined Serpe Andrews in March 2011.
In 2021, Maggie obtained her certification to mediate.
Some of Maggie’s achievements include both appellate and trial victories.
In OakBend Medical Center v. Domingo Martinez, Jr., 515 S.W.3d 536 (Houston App. [14th Dist.] 2017), she successfully appealed a trial court’s ruling denying summary judgment based on governmental immunity.
The Fourteenth Court of Appeals held OakBend Medical Center was immune from suit for all claims arising from the escape of a psychiatric patient.
The Fourteenth Court of appeals reversed the trial court’s order and rendered judgment dismissing the lawsuit for lack of jurisdiction for the claims asserted.
Most recently, in 2021, Maggie first chaired a premises liability bench trial in which a defense verdict was obtained on behalf of The Woman’s Hospital of Texas.
Terry Hopkins v. CHCA Woman’s Hospital, L.P. d/b/a The Woman’s Hospital of Texas, Cause No. 2017-39068, in the 215th Judicial District Court of Harris County.
