Personal and Powerful

Ron loves to fight for the underdog. In fact, his favorite cases are those he is told cannot be won. Never a wallflower, Ron makes his presence known in every room he enters – whether it’s a courtroom or a conference room. After decades of practice, he knows everyone at the courthouse by name.

He brings his friendly, energetic nature to each of his cases and challenges excite him. He limits his practice to family law matters and never shies away from litigating any of them if needed. In Ron’s mind, the tougher the case, the more invigorated he is to fight. He is an advocate for his clients, keeping his caseload limited in order to devote as much of his time to each case as needed.

More Than Just a Lawyer

Ron is married with two grown children and a granddaughter who is the apple of his eye. When he isn’t practicing law, he is at home on the ranch with his family and tending to their horses. As a former JAG, Ron is still committed to community service work that helps veterans. He also supports local law enforcement and proudly hosts an annual elk chili lunch for Hood County law enforcement officers at his ranch every year.

Ron grew up in El Campo, Texas, and in high school, was voted “most likely to NEED a lawyer.” Yet, he recognized the importance of education and had the ambition to make a better life for himself and his family. He was the first in his family to attend college and chose to continue his education through law school. Since then, he has been passionate about excelling as an attorney and a community servant – ultimately leading to his election as Hood County judge.

Traditional yet Innovative

All of the attorneys at Brousseau Naftis Erick & Massingill believe there is power in words. Words, proverbs, sayings, and quotations have the power to connect the present to the past. The words and sayings that each attorney holds onto are meaningful in shaping the firm’s culture and philosophies.

Ron’s favorite quote is, “I never let the law stand in the way of justice for my client, which captures his dedication to his clients. His larger-than-life personality leaves a lasting impression on everyone he meets. He always gives 100% and has fun doing it.
