Attorney Caj Boatright
When everything is on the line, when injured people need to win, Caj Boatright is the attorney they turn to. Few lawyers have tried as many cases or obtained as many multi-million dollar settlements as Caj has. In just his first five years of plaintiff representation, he secured hundreds of millions for clients in a staggering amount of high-stakes cases:
- $11,000,000 judgment for a businessman cheated by a contract breach
- $10,000,000 settlement for the family of a victim in a fatal truck collision
- $10,000,000 settlement for an injured child
- $9,000,000 settlement for a severely injured oil field worker
- $6,500,000 settlement for two refinery workers exposed to harmful chemicals
- $3,000,000 settlement for a boat captain whose back was injured at sea
- $2,800,000 verdict for a dock worker who suffered an ankle injury during cargo operations
- $2,400,000 settlement for a woman after a truck backed into her
The secret to Caj’s exceptional results is the philosophy we embody at Arnold & Itkin:
- Relentless Endurance – We refuse to be outworked.
- Extensive Preparation – We put everything into preparing each case for trial.
- Unwavering Dedication – We fight for the best possible result, no matter what.
- Unrivaled Resources – We’ve beaten the world’s largest opponents.
- Extensive Skill & Experience – As courtroom litigators, we live for the fight.
Caj sees his clients like family, which informs his legal practice. He takes every case personally, which is why he ceaselessly fights for the best results for his clients. He also believes that trying cases before a jury is the best way for his clients to get what they need. He refuses to back down from any defendant, no matter how big or powerful, and it has resulted in life-changing verdicts and settlements.
Multiple honors and awards have marked his remarkable legal career. These include multiple selections to the Texas Super Lawyers® Rising Stars™, designation as a “Top 100 Trial Lawyer in America,” and even the “Top Professional on the Fast Track” award from H Texas Magazine. For his incredible results, he was offered exclusive membership in the Million Dollar Advocates and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum®. He was also selected for the list for Best Lawyers in America® for Admiralty and Maritime Law.
One of Caj’s primary strengths as a lawyer is his wide range of experience in the field. He spent four years at one of the most well-respected firms in Texas practicing complex commercial litigation and appellate law. He spent an additional five years overseeing some of Exxon Mobil’s most important cases, entrusted with cases worth billions of dollars. He also clerked for the Honorable Reynaldo Garza on the United States Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. Today, he applies his vast knowledge to representing the injured and grieving.
Caj was raised in a small town in western Texas named Sweetwater. A lifelong Texas resident, he attended Southwestern University for his undergraduate degree and the University of Texas School of Law for his law degree. He attended law school alongside Kurt and Jason, and eventually became the first attorney to join the firm after its founding. When not litigating cases, Caj spends time with his wife Jodi and their three children. Together, they attend sporting events, enjoy the outdoors, attend Kingwood United Methodist Church, and volunteer for Young Life.
