Texas Personal Injury Lawyer
M. Raymond Hatcher of Sloan, Bagley, Hatcher & Perry was born in Mission, Texas and attended Texas A&M University where he received his Bachelor of Science and Master of Science Degrees. After graduation, he worked with Schering, which is a Fortune 100 pharmaceutical company. He worked in this position for seven years in the marketing and sale of pharmaceuticals when he then decided to attend law school at Texas Tech University School of Law. He graduated Cum Laude in 1997.
While Mr. Hatcher was in law school, he was chosen to be a Member of the Board of Barristers. He represented Texas Tech by serving on its National Trial Advocacy Teams. In doing so, he was eventually awarded for "Excellence for the Future Award" in the field of Trial Advocacy. During his third year of law school he and only 36 other law and pharmacy students in the nation were selected to participate in an internship with the Food & Drug Law Institute in Washington D.C.
In 1997, Mr. Hatcher was admitted to the State Bar of Texas as well as the U.S. District Courts for Eastern, Western, Northern and Southern Districts of Texas. He dedicates 100 percent of his practice to litigation, specifically personal injury and commercial litigation. Some of the many cases he has tried and arbitrated include truck accidents, car accidents, commercial litigation, non-subscriber workplace injury, ERISA and toxic torts.
With his background in science and his former employment with a pharmaceutical company, he is specially apt to handle cases involving dangerous drugs, medical device failures and the like. He has a unique insight into these issues unlike most attorneys have. In his free time, Ray enjoys flying, skiing, scuba diving, hunting and fishing.
