The Dallas and Frisco offices gathered on the afternoon of Thursday, September 30th for the announcement of Jesse Cromwell making partner. Mr. Cromwell joined McCathern as an associate attorney in 2017 and in the years since has proven himself repeatedly across several practice areas and both in defense of clients and in representing plaintiffs. Mr. Cromwell is particularly experienced in Business & Commercial Litigation, Insurance Litigation, and Construction Litigation matters.

In recognition of his hard work, Mr. Cromwell was selected by his peer attorneys to the 2021 and 2022 Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch lists (Commercial Litigation: Construction Litigation) and the 2021 edition of D Magazine’s Best Lawyers Under 40 (Business/Commercial Litigation).

Earlier in September, the Houston office of McCathern elevated attorney Marianne Robak to Partner. Ms. Robak joined McCathern in 2019 after gaining substantial experience at other Houston-area law firms. In just two years with McCathern, Ms. Robak proved herself to be an exceptional counsel to her clients.

The partners at McCathern’s four offices are ecstatic to welcome Jesse Cromwell and Marianne Roback to their partnership and are confident that the pair will be critical parts of the firm’s growth long into the future.
