Berry Law: Veterans Serving Veterans
Berry Law was founded in 1965 by John Stevens Berry, Sr., who spent part of his time in the Army serving in Vietnam. During a JAG tour in Vietnam, he successfully defended Green Berets against murder charges among other courtroom victories for his fellow servicemembers, resulting in major news coverage and an elite reputation. While developing a criminal defense practice, he also helped Veterans with legal work, particularly supporting fellow Vietnam Veterans who had been disabled in service. This is how our Veterans disability practice began.
The firm is now run by John S. Berry, Jr., who retired as a Lieutenant Colonel from the National Guard, after earlier Active Duty tours in both Bosnia and Iraq. John has built a Firm that lives on military tradition and values. In fact, the organization became the first law firm to ever receive the HIREVets Platinum Medallion, presented to companies that display a dedication to hiring Veterans.
On our staff are Veterans from the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps. We have attorneys hailing from each branch, and are proud to have both Officers and Enlisted, with service ranks ranging from E2 – O6 (including an E9). Our Veterans have served in Vietnam, Bosnia, Kuwait, Iraq, Afghanistan, at sea, and elsewhere around the world, and have the accompanying ribbon racks of sustained superior service to the country. Also on staff are members of the Reserves and National Guard still wearing the uniform.
We bring both our passion for the military and our passion for the law to help Houston Veterans with their legal needs.
We also assist Veterans in El Paso, San Antonio, Dallas, Austin, and Fort Worth.
