Lorin M. Subar’s practice focuses on commercial, qui tam and insurance litigation and appellate law. He provides effective and efficient representation to corporate clients and individuals in complex commercial litigation, breach of contract claims, class actions, products liability, construction defect litigation and personal injury litigation. Lorin’s extensive experience has given him the distinct ability to quickly grasp the critical components of matters and cases and provide a swift and effective response. Clients say they value his talent of picking up a case "on the fly" and quickly reaching an efficient resolution.

Lorin has represented clients in federal and state courts nationwide, including Texas, California, Washington, Oklahoma, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, Florida and Delaware. In addition to significant jury trial experience, Lorin has drafted and argued more than 100 federal and state appeals in all 14 Texas appellate courts, the 5th Court of Appeals, the 8th Court of Appeals, and the intermediate appellate courts and Supreme Courts for New Jersey and Oklahoma. He is an AV-Preeminent Peer-Review rated attorney by Martindale Hubbell, a title he has held for more than 25 years.  He was also recently recognized by his peers who nominated him as a 2016 Best Lawyer in Dallas by D Magazine.

Lorin is dedicated to finding solutions and reaching goals. When he is away from the office, he spends his time whipping up sweet and savory meal solutions as an amateur chef and baker, and striding toward the finish line in triathlon competitions.
