In May of 1969, David Provost (1934 – 1990) and Walter Umphrey (1936 – 2021), two young trial lawyers from Port Arthur, Texas, started a law firm that has since become legendary in the state of Texas and maintains a nationwide reputation for helping individuals recover compensation for injuries. For over 50 years, we have carried Provost and Umphrey’s torch and continue the proud tradition of helping individuals get the justice they need and deserve. At Provost Umphrey, we put our resources to work for you, including experts, attorneys, and investigators. We are hard-working lawyers for hard-working people.
