M. Jermaine Watson

Attorney Profile

undefinedI am the founding shareholder of M. J. Watson & Associates, P.C. I primarily assist clients with matters related to commercial bankruptcies and creditors' rights. Prior to founding this firm, I was an associate attorney in the Dallas office of a large Texas-based law firm for nearly five years. I have experience counseling commercial bankruptcy clients in the energy, healthcare, construction, transportation, and banking industries.

Although my practice focuses primarily on Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganizations and commercial litigation, I also counsel small and mid-sized companies on general corporate matters and transactions. I also represent the constituencies and interests of public and private institutions in civil and labor/employment matters before state and federal courts and administrative tribunals.
