Reagan Sahadi Shares His Insights on How to Run A Successful Law Firm

Reagan Sahadi has had overwhelming success litigating cases throughout the nation in several areas of the law. Specifically, Reagan excels in representing personal injury and products liability victims. He formed Sahadi Legal Group to provide the wealth of experience and resources of a larger law firm while still maintaining the personal touch of a boutique firm.

 

Upon graduating from law school, Reagan Sahadi joined Donnell, Abernethy & Kieschnick in Corpus Christi where he worked for several years. He remained in Corpus Christi, and subsequently joined Wigington Rumley Dunn & Blair LLP, where he focused his practice on truck accidents, products liability, oil and gas accidents, and other catastrophic personal injury accidents.

 

Additionally, Reagan Sahadi is a former sitting municipal court judge for the city of Goliad, Texas. Reagan was the first municipal court judge for the city of Goliad and he presided over a wide variety of cases for the city.

 

Reagan recently obtained a verdict in a personal injury case exceeding 120 million dollars, the largest verdict for actual damages in El Paso County history. He has negotiated settlements on behalf of his clients in the seven-figure range on multiple occasions, including a recent $19,000,000.00 settlement on a products liability action. In total since 2009, Reagan’s verdicts and settlements have surpassed several hundred million dollars.

Reagan Sahadi has recently been engaged to represent two victims of the November 5, 2021 tragedy at the Astroworld Music Festival that left 10 people dead and hundreds injured.

 

Reagan Sahadi is licensed to practice in all Texas state courts and the Southern, Eastern, and Western Districts of Texas. He is a member of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association and the Attorneys Information Exchange Group. In the past, Reagan has served on the Board of Directors for the Corpus Christi Young Lawyers Association and was appointed by the mayor to the Board of Directors to the Corpus Christi Crime Control and Prevention District.

 

We had the opportunity to connect with Reagan Sahadi and hear what it takes to run a successful personal injury law firm. He gave us insights into everything from the qualities he looks for when hiring new talent to how to create a positive company culture.

 

What qualities and skills do you look for when hiring new talent?

I look for a strong work ethic and a “can-do” attitude, I like a forward aggressive thinker.  I hate hearing the words “I don’t know.”  I’d rather hear “I don’t know, but I will find out.” As long as someone has a strong work ethic and ability, the knowledge can be acquired.

 

What questions do you ask during an interview?

Are you energetic and motivated?

Are you willing to learn?

Are you eager?

Do you care about the work we do here?

 

How do you motivate your team for outstanding results?

It starts with hiring a good team.  Then, you need to reward them with a bonus structure and vacation time. The personal injury plaintiff’s world in South Texas is small.  Everyone knows who is capable and who is not in terms of support staff.

 

How do you help create and sustain the culture of your company?

Hire excellent people and then let them do what they do best.  My two paralegals are basically lawyers; they do everything a lawyer can do except appearing in court.  They draft motions, call clients, and work up the files.

 

How do you handle difficult clients?

Gentle persistence and positive reinforcement are always the keys.  Even when a client is being difficult, you need to continue to repeat your stated position while exuding exude a positive and amicable attitude.

 

What does your company do to help the community?

The Sahadi Legal Group sponsors several charities in my wife’s hometown of Goliad, Texas. This includes The Little Miss Goliad Pageant and the Ignacio Zaragoza Society. The latter of which is a Hispanic scholarship fund.

 

What advice do you have for someone interested in starting their own company?

Don’t be afraid.  Jump off with both feet and make a go at it.  The worst that can happen is still better than not trying at all.

 

What is the biggest mistake you see others making in business?

Tasting success and then becoming complacent.  It happens to all of us, but you have to keep yourself motivated and be hungry all of the time or you will fall behind.

 

What are the key elements for starting and running a successful business?

Keeping control of costs, hiring good people, attracting business, and listening to your staff.

 

Who is the one entrepreneur to be your greatest example and inspiration?  Why?

I would have to say Mikal Watts.  He is the attorney down here in South Texas who started the model for Plaintiff’s attorneys to follow.  He inspired my former bosses who then taught me.

 

 

Environmental engineering and MBA by degree that has found passion within the digital marketing space and as a result transformed businesses and individuals’s realities throughout, by helping them voice their stories on top publications.
