Curt is a founding partner of the San Antonio-based law firm Martin Cukjati & Tom, LLP. He is licensed to practice in all state and federal courts in Texas and is admitted to practice before the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court. Curt is committed to helping those who are most deserving of focused legal services. Curt achieved an AV Preeminent Rating from Martindale-Hubbell in 2011, which he maintains to this day.
For more than 30 years, Trey Martin and Curt Cukjati have developed a unique and unusually diverse range of legal experience. Before founding this firm, both men worked at “big law” firms representing corporations in lawsuits and civil appeals. While both Trey and Curt appreciate the legal experience these firms provided, both men felt they weren’t the right fit for them. In fact, working for a large firm without the right corporate culture kept Curt from being with his wife while she was in labor at the hospital. Since that time, the two, along with their third name partner Jeff Tom and associate attorney Jacob Cukjati, have represented plaintiffs and defendants in million-dollar claims, won million-dollar verdicts, and argued appeals throughout the State of Texas.
The firm believes it is important to shake things up and help your community, and it upholds that idea by accepting a variety of cases, including those other firms may not choose to accept. The more seasoned partners enjoy sharing their experience with other lawyers and helping those most deserving of focused legal services. These San Antonio litigators are very proud of their large number of repeat clients. They strive daily to set the standard for what lawyers should be doing on behalf of their clients.
Across their cumulative legal careers, high points have included more than the record-setting case results they’ve been able to achieve. The lawyers count among their most important achievements getting a Christmas card from a destitute client for 10 years in a row for pro bono work, counseling parents who’ve lost a child, and achieving the longevity of 30 years together despite personal tragedy both at work and outside of it.
