Pedro Leyva

Pedro Leyva is a personal injury attorney who handles cases throughout Texas and New Mexico. He is committed to the pursuit of justice for clients who have experienced a life-altering injury because of someone else’s negligence. His case experience includes catastrophic injuries and wrongful death cases in the oilfield and crashes involving 18-wheeler trucks and commercial vehicles.

Pedro brings a strategic advantage to his oilfield cases with first-hand knowledge after having worked in both the oilfield and in oil refineries. His dad, brother and many family members still work in the oilfield today. Pedro’s background helps him in understanding not only how a severe injury or death occurred but also why it occurred so companies can be held fully accountable.

In just a few short years, Pedro has recovered millions of dollars for his clients. He has built a reputation of excellence in his cases and is committed to always going the extra mile for his clients.

Pedro grew up in the small West Texas border town of Presidio, Texas.  He is the son of Mexican immigrants and grew up speaking Spanish as his primary language. Pedro graduated Valedictorian of Presidio High School’s Class of 2009. He went on to the University of Texas where he graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration. Upon graduating from the University of Texas, Pedro worked for General Motors in their Customer Experience Division. It was there where he learned the invaluable importance of client relationships.

Pedro later attended Texas Tech University School of Law where he graduated summa cum laude, or “with highest honor.” He was a member of the Texas Tech Law Review, the Hispanic Law Students Association, and Phi Delta Phi International Legal Honor Society. Upon graduating, Pedro was elected to the Order of the Coif.
