Mike Mosher grew up on El Paso, Texas and graduated with honors from the University of Texas Law School in 1981.  He began his practice of law in New York City with the law firm of Kaye, Scholer, Fierman, Hays and Handler.  After several years at Kaye Scholer he returned to Texas to practice law.  In 1990 he started his own firm and in 1992, he moved his home base to Paris, Texas where he has remained.

In 1992 Mike Mosher won the first case to go to trial against the Upjohn Company involving the drug Halcion.  The case was Freeman v. Upjohn in Dallas, Texas and Mr. Mosher represented Bill Freeman, a former police officer who had been convicted of the murder of his best friend.  In the Upjohn case, Mr. Mosher established that Freeman's actions had been caused by the drug Halcion and the jury awarded his family $1.9 million dollars* . Since then Mr. Mosher has represented plaintiffs in numerous cases, throughout the United States, against doctors and drug companies, where the injuries were caused by psychiatric drugs.  

Mr. Mosher has extensive knowledge of the pharmacokinetics, the adverse reactions, and the proper administration of all the psychotropic drugs including the anxiolytics (eg. Xanax, Ativan, Klonopin), the hypnotics (Halcion, Dalmane, Restoril), the stimulants (eg. Ritalin, dexedrine, Adderall) the anticonvulsants (eg. Tegretol, Depakote, Neurontin), the antidepressants (eg. all the SSRIs, Effexor and the tricyclic antidepressants), and the neuroleptics, (eg. Zyprexa, Risperdal, Seroquil, Abilify). 

In 1998, Mr. Mosher won a $3 million dollar verdict against a WalMart Pharmacy in Austin, Texas on behalf of the family of Cameron Pettus who had been placed on desipramine for supposed ADHD.  Cameron developed a hypersensitivity reaction which caused his death.  The prescribing doctor, and all the other defendants except WalMart, accepted responsibility and settled.  Only WalMart refused.  Mr. Mosher and the family refused to accept WalMart's arrogant refusal to accept responsibility and they proceeded to trial.  The jury agreed with the family and awarded a $3 million dollar verdict against WalMart*.

In addition to trial verdicts, Mr. Mosher has settled numerous cases against doctors and drug companies involving injuries from addiction to Xanax, Klonopin and the other benzodiazepines as well as injuries resulting from SSRIs.


Mr. Mosher has litigated issues surrounding these drugs with the drug companies, with doctors, in the context of child custody actions, and in defense of those accused of crimes committed while under the effects of these drugs.

While Mr. Mosher has extensive knowledge of psychiatric drugs, his practice is not limited to such drugs.  He has litigated and won medical malpractice cases involving misdiagnosis of a variety of conditions and accident cases involving defective products including automobiles. Mr. Mosher accepts cases throughout Texas involving any kind of litigation.  He handles criminal cases, civil cases, and family law cases and uses his skills and knowledge to seek justice for all of his clients.
