Jason Itkin is heralded as one of the top trial attorneys in the United States. Over the course of his fifteen-plus-year career, Mr. Itkin has recovered billions of dollars for his clients in a broad range of personal injury, medical malpractice, and product liability cases. Based in Houston, Texas, he is a founding partner of Arnold & Itkin, LLP, where together with fellow co-founder Kurt Arnold he leads a team of nearly twenty talented attorneys who collectively have helped hundreds of people find the justice and compensation they deserve after being injured by the wrongdoings of others.

Since earning his Juris Doctor with honors from the University of Texas Law School in 2001, Mr. Itkin has secured numerous record-breaking verdicts nationwide. In addition to many others, he won a $117 million verdict in Louisiana—the largest personal injury verdict awarded to a single plaintiff in the state—and a $42 million verdict in Hawaii—the largest commercial verdict in Hawaii’s history. 

Mr. Itkin has achieved such staggering numbers through an aggressive approach centered on a commitment of time, resources, and a talent. Going toe-to-toe with some of the largest companies and insurance firms in the United States, Mr. Itkin possesses a tenacity and strategical mind that is unmatched by other lawyers or firms.

These accomplishments have made Mr. Itkin a clear leader in plaintiff-side personal injury litigation and related fields. Having been featured in national media outlets such as CNN and the Wall Street Journal, he is routinely hired to be lead counsel on the most important cases in the country. Additionally, he is often sought out by other lawyers for help with their cases. This prominence in his field gives Mr. Itkin a unique vantage point from which to follow prevailing trends in personal injury law.

Mr. Itkin’s superior skill and inimitable track record are reflected in the numerous awards and recognitions he has received over the years. Among others honors, he is the youngest attorney to be invited to join the Inner Circle of Advocates and was included among the “Top 100” by Houston Super Lawyers® in 2017. Mr. Itkin was also recognized by Best Lawyers® in 2018 for his work in plaintiff-side personal injury litigation as well as admiralty and maritime law.

Jason is married to Kisha Itkin, President of Theorem Vineyards. Together, with their daughter, Alia, the Itkins are active members and proud supporters of the Houston and Napa communities. When not practicing law, Jason and his wife help in numerous community projects, both individually and through the Arnold & Itkin Foundation.
