Robert C. Jenevein: Attorney with Vincent Serafino Geary Waddell Jenevein, P.C.



Former Judge Bob Jenevein joined Vincent Lopez Serafino Jenevein, P.C. after 11 years of private practice and four years on the Dallas County Bench. Judge Jenevein presided over more jury trials and disposed of more cases in his first year on the Bench than any civil judge in the history of Dallas County. Every year thereafter, he served as the Presiding Judge of the Dallas County Courts at Law. Having experienced 250 jury trials in four years, Judge Jenevein is known for his expertise in jury selection, a topic on which he enjoys speaking. In March of 2001, CBS Evening News with Dan Rather ran an Eye-on-America spotlight on jury trials in Judge Jenevein's court.

As a civil litigator before and after his tenure on the Bench, Judge Jenevein has handled a wide variety of cases, from personal injury and landlord-tenant disputes to complex commercial torts, and he has prevailed at every level of the Texas judicial system. His preference, however, is jury trials, on either side of the "v."

As a mediator in civil and family cases, the former judge has used his experience to consistently settle over 80% of the hundreds of cases litigants and other judges have referred to him.

Speeches and Presentations

Judge Jenevein has been a consistent faculty member on the highly acclaimed Choosing and Courting a Jury seminar presented in both Dallas and Houston. He has spoken on the topics of Professional Ethics in Litigation, Strategies for Winning at Hearings and at Trials, and Jury Dynamics at the Dallas Bar Association's Bench-Bar Conference


Judge Jenevein graduated from St. Mark's School in Dallas (1980), Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia (1984), and Texas Tech University School of Law in Lubbock (1991), where he was an Associate Editor of the Law Review and inducted as a member of the National Order of Barristers.

Professional History

Jenevein joined the civil litigation section of Haynes & Boone, LLP in Dallas before starting his own litigation and mediation practice in 1993, a business that flourished until he donned his judicial robes in 1999.

In 2003, Jenevein joined the business litigation boutique of Brady & Cole, PC. He also established a healthy mediation practice before joining Vial Hamilton Koch & Knox in 2005.
