July is Black Mental Health Awareness Month. This is a very important topic in our law firm family, so we decided to team up with Ashlee and 93.7 The Beat to raise awareness. Every time you hear Amber Mostyn and Ashlee talking about mental health on The Beat this month, Mostyn Law will donate $93.70 to Charlamagne Tha God’s Mental Wealth Alliance.
If you or a loved one are experiencing a mental illness crisis, call the suicide prevention hotline at 1-800-273-TALK. The hotline is not just for the person experiencing mental illness— it’s a great resource for the people that love them too!
Here's an update on Winter Storm Uri claims. On July 7, 2021,
the Texas Multidistrict Litigation Panel appointed Judge Silvia Matthews in
Harris County to serve as the Pretrial Judge for claims arising from the lack
of electricity during Winter Storm Uri. In short, this means that claims will
be consolidated and transferred to this court where all pre-trial discovery
disputes will be heard and decided. This transfer promotes the dual goals of
efficiency and justice.
Mostyn Law is very familiar with the MDL process and has served as
Liaison Counsel for thousands of cases in eleven different MDL courts across
the State of Texas. We have had the pleasure of serving as Liaison Counsel
before Judge Silvia Matthews from 2015-2018 in the Farmers Insurance Company
Wind/Hail Storm Litigation. We expect that Judge Silvia Matthews will hold
numerous status conferences over the next few months to implement procedures
and a comprehensive discovery plan that will establish deadlines for prosecuting
