Pradia was educated on how to be an effective litigator from his mentors Craig Washington, Sarnie Randle, Jr. and Theadore Andrews. Throughout his career, Pradia has remained humble and appreciative of all the people who helped shape his legal career. “TP,” as Troy is affectionately known, has represented the common people who needed a hand in tackling the large corporations and Fortune 500 Insurance Companies. Early on in his legal career, Pradia started his own law firm, The Law Offices of Troy J. Pradia, and had tremendous success.

In 2008, Pradia began litigating personal injury cases with Jonathan H. Cox, and in 2010 they finally joined forces and created The Cox Pradia Law Firm, P.L.L.C. The Cox Pradia Law Firm, P.L.L.C. then introduced a legal marketing brand, BigCityAccidents.com, to the Houston community to make people aware of a competent law firm who could make those “TOO BIG TO FAIL” corporations pay for their negligent acts. The Cox Pradia Law Firm, P.L.L.C. and BigCityAccidents.com have assisted thousands of clients in their quest to receive just compensation for their personal injuries. The goal of The Cox Pradia Law Firm, P.L.L.C. is to become the largest African American personal injury law firm in the State of Texas over the next five years. Our Motto is “WE ARE TRIAL LAWYERS AND NOT CLAIMS ADJUSTERS AND WE WILL TAKE THE FIGHT TO THE COURTS.”

Pradia and The Cox Pradia Law Firm, P.L.L.C. are also committed to giving back to the community. During Thanksgiving 2013, The Cox Pradia Law Firm, P.L.L.C. provided Thanksgiving dinner to more than 200 people at “The Bread of Life,” a nonprofit homeless shelter, which is associated with St. John’s United Methodist Church in Downtown Houston. The firm will continue to provide Thanksgiving meals for “The Bread of Life” on an annual basis because it’s the right thing to do. The Cox Pradia Law Firm, P.L.L.C. also donated over 300 backpacks to elementary and middle school students returning to school in Houston in August 2013. The future is very bright for Pradia and The Cox Pradia Law Firm, P.L.L.C. Pradia believes in giving back to the community and because of all the blessings bestowed upon him, he will continue to pay it forward.
