John Harrison Flud began his professional life in the business sector. Prior to practicing law, Mr. Flud spent many years owning and operating a wholesale business and two years working for a Fortune 250 company as an outside sales representative. After several years in business, Mr. Flud finished his undergraduate and graduate education and decided to enter the practice of law. Mr. Flud went to law school at South Texas College of Law Houston where he graduated summa cum laude (top 2%) with a Juris Doctor.
Mr. Flud began his legal career working for a family-law firm called Jenkins and Kamin, LLP. During his time at Jenkins and Kamin, Mr. Flud’s practice was focused exclusively on family law. He handled hundreds of family law cases involving divorce, child custody, property division, Child Protective Services, child support, termination and adoption, enforcement actions, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, etc. During this time, Mr. Flud also did amicus and attorney ad litem work in cases involving Child Protective Services (CPS) and contested child custody matters.
A couple of years into his practice, Mr. Flud transitioned to a law firm called West, Webb, Allbritton and Gentry in College Station. With this transition, Mr. Flud broadened his law practice to include other areas of civil law, including personal injury and torts, contract and property disputes, probate, guardianship, and appellate work. During this time, Mr. Flud greatly expanded his understanding of civil law and his skills as a civil litigator.
After some years at West Webb, Mr. Flud accepted a position as the Managing Litigation Attorney at a personal injury firm in Houston. In this role, Mr. Flud managed the litigation division of a busy Plaintiff’s personal injury firm, overseeing the prosecution of personal injury cases from the time they entered litigation until they concluded by settlement or trial. It was during this time that Mr. Flud gained a deep understanding of personal injury law and how to prosecute personal injury claims.
As Mr. Flud continued to grow both professionally and personally, he felt a strong desire to take on new challenges and follow his dream of running his own law firm. When the time was right, Mr. Flud took the leap and established his own law firm, confident in his ability to provide exceptional legal services and create a supportive environment for his clients. Ultimately, the decision has proven to be immensely rewarding, enabling Mr. Flud to make a meaningful impact in the legal community and provide top-notch legal representation to clients who entrust him with their legal matters.
As a civil litigator, Mr. Flud has done it all. He has done bench and jury trials, depositions, mediations, appeals, and many contested court hearings. Mr. Flud is always glad when parties can resolve their disputes amicably by agreement, but he is not afraid to fight it out in the courtroom when agreement is not possible.
Mr. Flud was born and raised in Oklahoma. He moved to Texas in 2004 and has been here ever since. Mr. Flud has two children. His son serves in the Army, and his daughter is in middle school. Mr. Flud enjoys spending time with family and friends, exercising, watching movies and sitcoms, and hiking when he can.
