Attorney Willie Ben “Bill” Daw, IIIIn February 1994, Mr. Daw left the Houston office of Phelps Dunbar to form what has evolved into Daw & Ray, L.L.P. In 1990, Mr. Daw became Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and has achieved Martindale-Hubbell’s highest rating for legal ability and ethical standards based on both judicial and peer review

Mr. Daw is experienced in virtually all facets of tort, insurance and commercial litigation. He has successfully tried numerous cases throughout Texas. He also frequently speaks to the claims industry on a wide range of topics, including investigation techniques, bad faith issues and changes in Texas law.

Mr. Daw served as co-lead counsel in the representation of a psychotherapist accused in implanting false memories of childhood satanic ritualistic abuse into the mind of her patient. After a two-week trial, the jury returned a verdict in favor of the psychotherapist which, according to the July 13, 1998, edition of the Houston Chronicle, was the first defense verdict returned in a false memory case. The Chronicle reported that nationally, nine other similar trials resulted in verdicts for the plaintiffs. In 1999, the National Law Journal named that result as one of the top 15 defense verdicts of 1998.
