In his second year of law school, Logan Wexler won a “not guilty” verdict from a Texas jury. His client walked out of the courtroom a free man, no longer facing a year-long jail sentence. From that moment, Logan knew he needed to devote his career to jury trials. Whether facing down the awesome power of the State or a multi-million-dollar corporation, Logan refuses to back down.

“At Arnold & Itkin, every one of our clients is a human being. Before they became our clients, they were schoolteachers and roofers, truck drivers and bank tellers, each with their own life story. So, when the legal process tries to reduce their existence to a few sheets of paper, we stand up and remind the judge, the jury, and the opposing party that our client is a human being first and a plaintiff second.”
Logan Wexler was born and raised in Houston, Texas. After graduating from Lamar High School, he attended the University of Texas at San Antonio, where he studied Spanish and Music Technology. For most of his life, Logan has played music with multiple touring bands while handling the business aspects of those ventures.
In 2016, Logan enrolled in the University of Texas School of Law. During law school, Logan interned for two Federal District Judges: the Honorable Melinda Harmon and the Honorable David Hittner. He also served as a public defender in law school. Additionally, he participated in the Criminal Defense Clinic, the Civil Rights Clinic, and the Entrepreneurship and Community Development Clinic. These experience-based learning opportunities gave Logan the chance to begin trying cases before juries while still attending law school. At the Public Defender Service for the District of Columbia, he defended numerous clients who were facing parole revocation.
After graduating, Logan began his legal career as a Public Defender for the State of New Mexico in Albuquerque. While there, he continued to secure acquittals and verdicts of “not guilty” from judges and juries at in-person and online proceedings. After two successful years as a Public Defender, Logan and his wife Jenn decided to move back to Houston to live near family. It was here that Logan changed careers from criminal law to civil law, where his opponent would not be the State, but multimillion-dollar companies and entities who were no less formidable.
At Arnold & Itkin, Logan has redirected his experience with jury trials and his passion for advocacy toward helping the injured. While his practice most often involves catastrophic truck accidents, he also handles cases involving offshore injuries, plant accidents, explosions, and serious injuries. No matter the case or the size of the defendant, he is prepared to do whatever it takes to ensure his clients can rebuild their lives.
The transition from criminal law to civil law has been a welcome challenge, but Logan believes that his duty remains the same. His clients are still people from all walks of life, and they are still facing a system that places them at a clear disadvantage. Every day, Logan fights to level the playing field in favor of his clients while holding the world’s biggest defendants accountable.
