Rey Flores is a trial lawyer and combat veteran who brings to the courtroom the same focus, creativity and will to win that he displayed during his time on active duty with the U.S. Army. An honors graduate of the University of Texas School of Law and a dean’s list graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point, Mr. Flores represents clients in state and federal courts, arbitrations, and mediations nationwide.

Mr. Flores was recognized in the 2021 list of “Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch” in the field of commercial litigation. Mr. Flores was also selected to the Texas Rising Stars list for 2020 for excellence in business litigation. Fewer than 2.5 percent of eligible Texas attorneys earn this recognition each year.

Mr. Flores’ litigation experience includes a broad range of business-related disputes. His clients include some of the largest oil and gas exploration and service companies in the world, petrochemical companies, an international construction materials company, a crane manufacturer, a nationwide retailer, and individual plaintiffs and defendants. He has successfully represented these clients in matters including complex commercial contract disputes, wage and hour claims under the Fair Labor Standards Act and similar state laws, trade secret misappropriation claims, construction defect claims, wrongful death and catastrophic injury cases, executive compensation disputes, and various business torts. Mr. Flores’ experience includes collective and class action litigation in jurisdictions across the country.

Mr. Flores’ previous litigation experience includes work as both a prosecutor and criminal defense attorney and as lead counsel on some of the most complex, significant, and high-profile national security cases in the United States.

Mr. Flores’ experience also includes matters involving Latin America, where his language ability and cultural understanding bring significant value to clients with international disputes.

A former armored cavalry and JAG officer, Mr. Flores previously served as a tank and scout platoon leader in Iraq and as the executive officer of an armored cavalry troop in Germany. Following the latter assignment, he was nominated and selected for a prestigious assignment as the aide-de-camp for a general officer. In this role, the general officer for whom he worked would ultimately evaluate Mr. Flores as the best captain in the division.

Mr. Flores received numerous awards throughout his military career including the Bronze Star for exemplary service in combat, three Meritorious Service Medals, the Army Commendation Medal, the National Defense Service Medal, the Iraq Campaign Medal with three campaign stars, the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, and the Overseas Service Ribbon.
