Jeremy Masten practiced exclusively with Hawash Cicack & Gaston for 7 years and has been of-counsel since July 2020. He worked primarily in commercial and insurance litigation, helping his clients resolve disputes affecting every aspect of their business, including ownership, investment, management, employment, vendors, contractors, insurance, leasing, and even bankruptcy (on both the creditor and debtor side).
Jeremy has first-hand experience in many of the state, federal, and bankruptcy courts in Harris and Montgomery County, as well as half a dozen other courtrooms throughout the State of Texas.
In some cases, Jeremy picks up the phone and works things out — he knows that, too often, the only people who profit from going to court are the lawyers. He thinks his role as a lawyer is to solve problems, not make them — that’s why he got into this gig in the first place.
In July 2020, Jeremy and his wife moved to Bell County, Texas, where he pursues a general practice, spends time exploring Central Texas, reads philosophy and poetry, and watches soccer.
