Caj Boatright Attorney

“As a trial lawyer, you must be willing to go the distance in every case. Few firms actually live by that creed. Arnold & Itkin does – plain and simple. The results speak for themselves.

Caj Boatright has made a habit out of winning exceptional verdicts and settlements for his clients. In fact, in the last couple of years, it would be difficult to find another trial lawyer anywhere that has tried more cases to verdict and obtained more multi-million dollar settlements.

Meet Caj Boatright

Caj’s hard work has resulted in hundreds of millions of dollars being recovered. Though he has spent only 5 of his 15-year legal career representing Plaintiffs, just a small sample of the results Caj has obtained during that time is staggering:

  • $11,000,000 judgment for a businessman wronged when a company breached its contract with him;
  • $10,000,000 settlement for a family who lost its husband, father, and sole income provider in a trucking crash;
  • $10,000,000 settlement for an injured child;
  • $9,000,000 settlement for a severely injured oil field worker;
  • $6,500,000 settlement for two workers exposed to dangerous chemicals at a refinery;
  • $3,000,000 settlement for a boat captain who suffered a back injury at sea;
  • $2,800,000 verdict for a dock worker who suffered an ankle injury during cargo operations; and
  • $2,400,000 settlement for a woman backed into by a truck.

Caj’s success for his clients stems from a formula that runs deep at Arnold & Itkin:

  • Unmatched Preparation – We will not be outworked.
  • Dedication to getting each client maximum recovery.
  • Unrivaled Resources – We have the ability to go toe-to-toe with the biggest companies in the world, and win.
  • Endurance – We treat and prepare every case as if it going to trial.
  • Skill and experience in the courtroom.

That formula rests on Caj’s strong sense of justice and his belief that the American jury system is the best way to help people get what they deserve. He does his best to make sure his clients receive maximum compensation when companies refuse to take responsibility for their wrongful conduct. Caj’s remarkable success in the courtroom has not gone unnoticed. He was recognized by Best Lawyers® in 2017 for Admiralty & Maritime Law and has been selected for inclusion in the Texas Super Lawyers® Rising Stars℠ list by Texas Monthly Magazine multiple times. H Texas Magazine has named Caj a Top Professional on the Fast Track. He has also been honored as a “Top 100 Trial Lawyer in America” and was invited to join the Million Dollar Advocates and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum® for his courtroom accomplishments.

One of Caj’s greatest strengths is the vast and diverse experience he has packed into his career. He spent four years practicing complex commercial litigation and appellate law at one of the largest and most well respected firms in Texas. He also was a law clerk for the Honorable Reynaldo Garza on the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. Additionally, Caj spent five years handling high-stakes litigation for Exxon Mobil Corporation, overseeing some of the company’s largest cases in various states with billions of dollars of exposure. Caj brings this wealth of experience to each case he now handles.

Caj grew up in the small west Texas town of Sweetwater. He attended Southwestern University in Georgetown where he graduated cum laude with honors. He then attended law school at University of Texas with Kurt Arnold and Jason Itkin. He was the first lawyer to join Arnold & Itkin LLP after Kurt and Jason started the firm.

When he is not in the courtroom, Caj is with his wife Jodi and three kids at a sporting event or in the outdoors. Caj and Jodi are members at Kingwood United Methodist Church and volunteer for Young Life.
