Kiwanis Club of Houston
April 21st Luncheon
**We will be at Brennan's of Houston for this lunch**
Speaker: Joe Jaworski
Joe Jaworski is a third-generation Texas trial attorney and former Mayor of Galveston, Texas. Joe’s term as mayor was defined by his unwavering support for and success in rebuilding
Galveston’s storm-devastated public housing; a political choice that made a positive difference for thousands of Island residents but cost him a second term.
Joe earned his bachelor’s from North Carolina’s Davidson College and his law degree from the University of Texas at Austin. In between college and law school, Joe played drums for four years in a national touring and recording band – North Carolina’s “Other Bright Colors.”
In 2021, he enters his thirtieth year of practice, a career that began as law clerk to United States Court of Appeals Fifth Circuit Judge John R. Brown, followed by a robust Admiralty defense trial
practice representing Gulf Coast maritime interests and, then, a rewarding plaintiff’s trial practice representing injured maritime workers. From these various career experiences he finally found his niche.
Joe owns The Jaworski Law Firm, headquartered in Galveston, and his practice is 100% mediation. He specializes in mediating Defense Base Act claims, mediating hundreds of claims annually domestically and abroad; these are the claims brought by military contractors for
personal injuries arising from the War on Terror.
Joe and his wife Rebecca have two children and live in Galveston.
