Hugh J. Plummer, Jr.

Attorney at Thomas J. Henry Law's San Antonio Office

Mr. Hugh J. Plummer, Jr., is a senior litigation attorney at Thomas J. Henry Law, joining the firm’s San Antonio office in 2020.

A second-generation Texas Trial Lawyer, Mr. Plummer was raised watching his father, the late “Pete” Plummer try cases in Harris County, Texas, a venue that some of the greatest trial lawyers in the United States, call home. Like his father, Hugh quickly developed a passion for the art of becoming a trial lawyer. While attending South Texas College of Law, Hugh clerked on the First Court of Appeals under Justice Tim Taft, and then with the esteemed criminal Trial Lawyer, Dick DeGuerin. His prowess as a law school advocate, landed him a spot on the STCL Varsity Mock Trial team, under the renowned Dean T. Gerald Treece.

Mr. Plummer’s success as a Trial Lawyer continued to build when he transitioned from law school advocate to licensed attorney in 2003. He successfully first and second chaired a variety of commercial civil trials during his early years, including being one of the youngest members to present oral argument to the Fifth Circuit of the United States. His passion, however, was helping individuals and families who have suffered catastrophic injuries or death, in complex personal injury litigation.

By 2008, Mr. Plummer’s success had propelled him to open The Plummer Law Firm, P.C., where Mr. Plummer represented individuals and families who had sustained a variety of personal injuries, trucking accidents, workplace injuries, premises liability, dog mauling, and death cases. Hugh has successfully represented clients and tried over 20 or more district and county court jury trials.

His success brought new opportunities to Mr. Plummer. In 2012, Mr. Plummer helped co-found and create a litigation finance company, specifically tailored to the needs of trial lawyers. In September of 2013, and upon launch, Mr. Plummer became the co-founder and CEO of LitCap. LitCap was the first finance company of its kind, that allowed Trial Lawyers to finance case-related costs and expenses through an online platform he designed and developed with his business partner. Under Mr. Plummer’s leadership, LitCap has facilitated over $360 million in loans to preeminent lawyers, at a sub 2% default and 20% gross return for lenders.

Throughout his more than seventeen years of practicing law as a preeminent trial attorney in Houston, Texas, Mr. Plummer’s success and experience as a trial lawyer were instrumental in his input in developing LitCap. Mr. Plummer has been named “Rising Star” by Texas Monthly several times and was a member of the National Trial Lawyers Association with the honor of being named “Top 40 Under 40” for his region. Mr. Plummer became and is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, in 2012, based on his success in the courtroom.

While practicing for TJH in San Antonio and Austin, Mr. Plummer currently lives in Houston, Texas, with his wife Allyson, and three children Ellie (17), Hud (9), and Charlotte (8). He is a life member of the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo and is involved with Adopt an Angel, Kids Meals, and other local charitable organizations.
