What to expect when you work with me

Clear Explanations


I am a firm believer in educating and empowering clients. That’s why I'll thoroughly explain your options and your contract before you sign a thing.


Fierce Representation


When facing a legal dispute, you want a lawyer who is not afraid of the fight. I will push for a fair outcome and, if needed, fight for your rights in court.


An Accessible Attorney


As a client, you’ll have direct access to me — not just my support staff. My devotion to your case is one of many ways I work to put your mind at ease.


Personal injury attorney serving the greater Houston area

I handle injury cases in & around Pasadena, South Houston, & Clear Lake

Jose Luis Orihuela

Attorney at Law

Some say that being a lawyer is all business, but when it comes to people getting hurt, I make each case personal. That’s because I understand that every injury can affect a person’s health, family, and ability to work. And so, whether it’s a minor slip and fall or a life-threatening trauma, I fight with my client’s best interests at heart.

Service tailor-made for Pasadena

As a former industrial laborer, I make a point of helping local blue collar workers. You'll never see me shy away from injuries caused by industrial or maritime accidents.

All Walks of Life Welcome

I am proud to come from a hardworking Peruvian family, and I am proud to be a first-generation American. Many of the people I represent in this area have a background similar to mine, and it is a privilege to guide them through their legal trouble whether in English or Spanish.

Notable Cases

Focused on the big picture

Whether it's a car wreck or catastrophic injury that brings you to my door, your well-being is priority #1. Period.

The way I see it, being a lawyer isn't just about bringing forth client claims. Really, it’s about assisting each individual in overcoming the hurdles that life throws at them.

No two cases I take are exactly the same because every client has their own unique situation and hardships. I understand that when you first call me, you are not calling with good news. That’s why, before I do anything else, I take the time to listen and determine the best method of helping you. Above all, I want to ensure that you are heard, understood, and guided toward the most effective resolution — even if that means referring you elsewhere.


Focused on Personal Injury Cases

When I first became an attorney, I tried out several different practice areas. However, I quickly realized that I could make the biggest impact on my clients' lives by focusing my energy solely on personal injury cases. After all, the South Houston area is full of workers who rely on labor-intensive jobs to support their families. When an injury threatens that lifestyle, I feel compelled to step in and fight for them.

Of course, blue collar workers are only a portion of my clientele, and no matter your job title, income, or personal background, please know that I am committed to your well-being. If you or a loved one has suffered from an injury caused by someone else in Pasadena, South Houston, Friendswood, League City, or a surrounding area, please do not hesitate to reach out for help. I do not collect any fees from my clients unless I recover financial compensation for them.
