Attorney at The Lanier Law Firm
Maura Kolb joined The Lanier Law Firm after working closely with the firm on complex commercial and personal injury litigation matters. Her innovative thinking and compassionate approach with clients made her a perfect addition to The Lanier Law Firm team. Maura's practice over the years has focused on antitrust and pharmaceutical litigation, as well as disputes involving products liability, breach of contract, personal injury and wrongful death. She was an integral part of the various multi-million dollar Vioxx trials, which garnered national attention and set the stage for the $4.85 billion nation-wide settlement. Maura displayed her ability to truly represent our firm clients as she managed the law firm’s voluminous Vioxx settlements to completion, advocating for increased settlement values for each client. As the Vioxx matters came to a close, Maura began representing clients affected by the BP Gulf Oil Spill. Her work in this area, which was largely pro bono, resulted in hundreds of clients receiving money for their vast losses. In 2011 she was promoted to the high profile role of managing the bankruptcy claims settlement department for the asbestos section of the firm. She continues in that capacity today collecting millions of dollars for The Lanier Law Firm clients every year. In fact, the cases Maura has worked with the firm have grossed in excess of $400 million. Maura was born in East Chicago, Indiana. She graduated cum laude from Northeast Missouri State University in Kirksville, Missouri in 1989, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications with a concentration in Business Management and minors in Spanish and Criminal Justice. She moved to Texas and earned her law degree from the University of Houston in 1995 and began practicing law at the firm of O'Quinn & Laminack in Houston.
