Rey Flores is a trial lawyer and combat veteran who brings the same focus, creativity, and will to win to his cases as he displayed during his 14 years on active duty with the US Army. An honors graduate of the University of Texas School of Law and a dean’s list graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point, Mr. Flores has tried 16 cases to verdict as lead counsel, served as second chair in 10 cases tried to verdict, and has represented numerous clients before administrative boards.
Mr. Flores’ experience includes nationally and internationally high-profile cases with significant media attention. He most recently served as an attorney assigned to the Pentagon and worked on some of the most complex and significant national security cases in the United States.
A former armored cavalry officer, he served as a tank and scout platoon leader in Iraq and as the executive officer of an armored cavalry troop in Germany. Following the latter assignment, he was nominated and selected for a prestigious assignment as the aide-de-camp for a general officer. In this role, the general officer for whom he worked would ultimately evaluate Mr. Flores as the best captain in the division.
Mr. Flores received numerous awards throughout his military career including the Bronze Star for exemplary service in combat, two Meritorious Service Medals, the Army Commendation Medal, the National Defense Service Medal, the Iraq Campaign Medal with three campaign stars, the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, and the Overseas Service Ribbon.
