Mr. Richard “RJ” Torres was inspired to follow in his sisters’ footsteps and be a legal advocate and litigator for those in need. While playing baseball for the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, Texas, RJ earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Management. Upon graduating from UIW, RJ went on to further his education at the Texas Southern University, Thurgood Marshall School of Law. During his time in law school, RJ interned at a law firm in Houston and was an active member of the Hispanic Law Student Association at TSU and graduated early.
Upon graduation from TSU, RJ returned to Corpus Christi, Texas, and partnered up with his sister. The dream of being partners became a reality, and The Torres Law Firm was established in 2013.
RJ immediately embraced the role of a litigator litigation seriously, and jumped into jury trials within months of being an attorney. RJ has had tremendous success in his profession, with countless victories big and small in the courtroom. RJ continues to take educational courses and stays up late reading to expand his knowledge and training. He has completed advanced coursework through the Criminal Defense Lawyer Trial College in Huntsville, Texas with a goal to be the best.
Part of this relentless dedication may stem from an early moment in RJ’s career. Two months after becoming licensed as an attorney, RJ took his first case to trial. He transformed the experience into motivation. It was from this first trial, RJ made a promise to himself, to do everything in his power to win. To this day, his promise holds true.
My mission is straight and to the point — win.
