Jonathan Lisenby’s career evolution from United States Army sergeant (underwater engineer and salvage diver) to high stakes lawyer standing up to some of America’s most powerful corporations places him among Texas’ most competent, effective, and unerringly relentless legal advocates for TX property owners and insurance policyholders.

Jonathan’s law practice focuses on two areas – holding insurance companies fully financially accountable to their policy promises when they delay or deny legitimate claims, and similarly holding accountable general contractors and building designers for shoddy or misrepresented construction creating financial and facilities hardships for owners and others responsible for commercial or government buildings.

Attorney Lisenby’s work throughout Texas in the insurance arena includes insurers’ wrongful conduct such as:

  • Insurance Delays and Bad Faith Denials
  • Tornado, Hail, and Wind Insurance Payment Denials
  • Business Insurance Claims & Underpayment Offers
  • Property Damage Claims & Bad Faith Litigation
  • Flood & Water Damage Claims and Lawsuits

Jonathan’s construction defect claims resolution and litigation practice covers the gamut of construction problems ranging from failed or poorly installed window systems causing stratospheric utility bills to poorly designed and graded sites leading to devastating water damage. His clients include:

  • Texas Businesses
  • School Districts, Charter Schools, and Universities
  • Mid and High Rise Building Owners
  • Hospitals and other Medical Facilities
  • Apartment Building Owners and Condo Boards
  • Retirement Communities and Homeowner Associations

At Gravely Jonathan represents Texas policyholders and property owners throughout the state.
