Mr. Goudarzi received his B.A. (1993) and J.D. (1996) from Texas Tech University. He is a past President of the East Texas Trial Lawyers Association (2011-2017) and currently serves on its board of directors in the capacity of President Emeritus. Mr. Goudarzi has been honored for many years as a Texas Super Lawyer (Super Lawyers recognition is a Thomson Reuters service), a National Trial Lawyers Top 100 Trial Lawyer (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017), a Trial Lawyers Board of Regents Litigator Award winner in 2014 and 2015 (ranked top 1% of lawyers), and a National Association of Distinguished Counsel member (2015) and a member of the American Academy of Trial Attorneys – Premier 100 (2015).   

Mr. Goudarzi was the lead trial lawyer on the #1, #2, and #3 largest trucking verdicts in Texas history.  For the past 3 years (2018, 2019 and 2020), Mr. Goudarzi’s firm has been voted the #1 18-Wheeler Trucking Law Firm in the nation.  In 2018, Mr. Goudarzi obtained four jury verdicts totaling more than $410,000,000.00 in truck accident cases.  In July 2019, Mr. Goudarzi secured the largest single plaintiff settlement in American history—$140 million.  Most recently, as the Courts are just beginning to allow jury trials since the outbreak of COVID-19, in November of 2021, Mr. Goudarzi obtained a $730,000,000.00 verdict for a single fatality in a collision with a tractor-trailer. 

Mr. Goudarzi has been proclaimed the “King of Trucking Litigation” in America by multiple national publications attributable to his unprecedented record-breaking verdicts and settlements in truck collision cases.   

Mr. Goudarzi is honored to have been invited, and proud to serve, on the Association of Plaintiff Interstate Trucking Lawyers of America (“APITLA”) National Advisory Board—a team committed to achieving a substantial reduction in the thousands of traffic deaths and injuries that occur each year on America's highways that are caused by unsafe trucking companies who choose to operate in violation of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. 

Mr. Goudarzi’s practice is devoted to the representation of victims in catastrophic injury and wrongful death cases, including commercial trucking and auto negligence, products liability, workplace injury and premises liability. His law firm has represented over 24,000 people. Mr. Goudarzi is admitted to practice in all State Courts of Texas and the United States District Courts for the Northern, Southern, Eastern and Western Districts of Texas. 

Mr. Goudarzi has tried cases all over the state of Texas and has secured record jury verdicts in Upshur County, Gregg County, Harrison County, Dallas County, Hopkins County, Marion County, Harris County, Camp County, Titus County, and Smith County. Additionally, he has achieved historic and record settlements throughout the state. In 2015, Mr. Goudarzi negotiated the 5th, 13th and 17th largest settlements in the United States and the 3rd, 4th, 6th, 11th and 16th largest settlements in Texas.   

Mr. Goudarzi is also a member of the American Association for Justice, the Million Dollar and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum (since 2013), the Honorable T. John Ward American Inn of Court and the Upshur County Bar Association. 

Mr. Goudarzi’s successes have not gone unnoticed, even by his adversaries. Lawyers who have been opposite Mr. Goudarzi in lawsuits and witnessed first-hand his tenacity and advocacy skills often refer Mr. Goudarzi clients, including their own family members.
