Attorney

Rene Sigman, Esq.

From small disputes to complex multi-million dollar litigation, Rene Sigman is known for her tenacity, dedication, and unbeatable work ethic in handling every case she touches.  She holds her clients’ best interest at heart and her passion for bringing justice to her clients has earned her many accolades and awards within her field and among her peers.

Her drive to be the best and do the best for her clients comes in part from her unconventional upbringing. Born and raised in Texas, Rene was one of two daughters raised by her single mom, who was an immigrant and came to America to live the American dream. Through hard work, her mother became a US citizen and built and maintained her own business for 45 years. At a young age, Rene was taught the importance of education, discipline, and hard work—It was the example that surrounded her.

Rene began competitive swimming at the young age of 5 and continued her swimming career at Texas A&M University. Rene’s ability to juggle school, athletics, and work set in motion the multi-tasking, discipline, and time management skills that would make her successful as a lawyer. At 11 years of age, she joined the debate team in middle school and won every event she competed in from Extemporaneous Speaking to Lincoln-Douglas debate. She made the decision then that she would become an attorney and use her natural born gift to help advocate for those that needed her voice the most.

Rene’s aspirations to be a top attorney brought her to South Texas College of Law for it’s Nationally ranked advocacy program headed by T. Gerald Treece. Rene competed on numerous mock trial and moot court teams while in law school accumulating several state and national awards for her advocacy skills. During her last year at law school, Rene accepted a job as a law clerk with Mostyn Law where she excelled at her job quickly and was offered a position as an attorney upon graduation. Rene worked tirelessly as an attorney for the firm for the last 16 years and earned the title of Head of Litigation at Mostyn Law in 2007.

Over the years, her tireless work ethic led to several appointments as plaintiffs’ liaison counsel and steering committees in various Hurricane and Hail Storm Multi-District Litigation throughout Texas. In 2014, Rene became licensed as an attorney in New York to assist those effected by Hurricane Sandy.

Throughout her career she has been recognized as one of the best policyholder insurance lawyers in Texas and beyond. She has been named to Super Lawyers and “Texas Rising Star” for seven years straight from 2011 to present, an achievement gained through her dedication to her clients’ cause and recognition among her peers and profession for outstanding results in consumer protection and insurance.

Rene now joins Merlin Law Group as Regional Litigation Manager and will be running Merlin’s Texas operation with the same tenacity, dedication, and hard work she is known for in the field of consumer protection and insurance.
