TEXAS TRIAL LAWYER

Milan G. Marinkovich

Milan G. Marinkovich is the managing attorney in The Woodlands, Texas office of MILAN G. MARINKOVICH & ASSOCIATES, PLLC.  He received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Pittsburgh and his Juris Doctor at Widener University School of Law in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.


With more than seven years of prior experience managing both coverage issues and personal injury liability claims for an insurer in Georgia and Texas, Milan is adept at each of these respective aspects of insurance. In addition to his work as lead defense counsel, he provides insurers with coverage opinions, reservation of rights letters, and conducts examinations under oath ("EUOs") on suspected fraudulent claim submissions. His civil  litigation trial practice focuses on both insurance coverage and defense (personal automobile and trucking), general liability, and premises liability. He also represents clients involved in business disputes, and handles both criminal and family law cases.


He is a former Assistant Nueces County Attorney in the Civil Litigation Division (Corpus Christi, Texas), where he successfully argued two published cases before the Thirteenth Court of Appeals:



  • Soliz v. Nueces County, 134 S.W.3d 298, Tex.App. - Corpus Christi, 2003  (No. 13-02-197-CV); Counsel for Appellee


As a former Assistant District Attorney, he prosecuted numerous misdemeanor and felony cases before juries with the Nueces County District Attorney’s office. His current criminal defense practice is devoted to representing clients charged with serious felony offenses, including first degree murder.


On February 20, 2019, Milan obtained a $300,000.00 jury verdict for a 7-year old victim of illicit sexual contact.


Milan is a current member of the Woodlands Bar Association and a legal advocate for both the International Association of Special Investigation Units (IASIU) and the Texas Association of Special Investigation Units (TASIU). He represents individuals, corporations, and insurance carriers in all state courts throughout Texas and has represented trucking clients in Tennessee, Pro Hac Vice, pursuant to Rule 19 of the Tennessee Supreme Court.
