McCathern has offices in Dallas, Houston, and Los Angeles with attorneys practicing across a wide range of practice groups.

Becoming a partner at the firm is not easily achieved. McCathern partnership is the result of hard work, dedication, and exemplary client service. Attorneys must prove themselves worthy of partnership by demonstrating extraordinary business acumen and have the fortitude to achieve the best possible results for each client.

“Making partner is a significant career milestone,” stated Arnold Shokouhi, Managing Partner at McCathern.  “Jesse and Andy are exceptional attorneys who have put in the hard work and dedication required for this role.  We congratulate them with enthusiasm and vigor and welcome them as McCathern’s newest Partners.”

McCathern’s partners are experts in their legal practice areas and proactively identify business opportunities for the firm and its clients. Attorneys who achieve partnership have a track record of going the extra mile for clients at every turn.

About Jesse Hoffman


Jesse Hoffman represents some of the most promising and successful businesses in the country and is routinely recognized for his accomplishments by both clients and respected legal publications. He specializes in civil, business, and employment litigation and serves as outside general counsel for the firm’s corporate clients. Jesse is licensed to practice in all Texas state courts, all Federal District Courts in Texas, and in the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. He was named to the Texas Super Lawyers Rising Stars® list in 2013, 2014, and 2015.

Jesse earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas at Austin with majors in English Rhetoric and Political Science and earned a place in the Sigma Tau Delta honors society. He attended Law School at Southern Methodist University’s Dedman School of Law in Dallas, Texas where he was employed by the American Law Institute to assist in creating the Restatement 3rd of Torts. Jesse earned his J.D. in 2008 and accepted a position as Assistant Attorney General for the State of Texas, practicing in the Law Enforcement Defense Division. While litigating for the Attorney General, he was responsible for some of the State’s most groundbreaking legal victories. Among them, Jesse authored the Motion for Summary Judgment, which disposed the most critical legal issues under consideration in Sossamon v. Texas, a landmark ruling that was upheld in favor of the State in a 6-2 decision by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Now in private practice at McCathern, Jesse dedicates these talents to helping his clients grow their businesses, maneuver increasingly complex litigation, and lays the groundwork to protect their interests well into the future. His courtroom expertise is second to none, but equally as important is that his efforts extend well beyond the courtroom steps. Jesse represents client interests wherever they may be, including the Texas Capital where he drafted legislation to effect truly lasting change in the laws of Texas. With his dedicated assistance, clients enjoy the benefits of creative solutions often coming from very far outside of the box.

In addition to extensive litigation and legal experience, Jesse also has a strong academic background and has been recognized by the College of the State Bar of Texas for continued dedication to his legal education. He is an active member of the Dallas-Ft. Worth community, where he resides with his wife and three sons.
