Families deserve to know what really happened, and compensation for their pain and medical bills.


For the entirety of Robertʼs legal career, he has exclusively represented plaintiffs and their families– choosing never to represent or defend a corporation in that time. Robert chooses to focus on helping people that have been harmed as a result of a company or corporationʼs negligence and fighting for those that are unable to advocate for themselves. The Wharton Law Firm was founded with the express purpose of representing clients like they were family and giving injured people the best advocacy in the fight against any corporation or entity.


Robert Wharton graduated from Florida State University before accepting a full scholarship at Baylor University School of Law in Waco, Texas. Robertʼs time at Baylor Law School prepared included a strong focus on trial advocacy that he would continuously put to use for his clients throughout his practice. Robert focuses his practice on medical malpractice claims, birth injury claims, cerebral palsy claims, nursing home claims, wrongful-death claims, catastrophic injuries, as well as maritime and admiralty claims.


Robertʼs wife Amanda is also an attorney, working in downtown Houston. When not traveling around the country advocating for his clients, he spends time with his wife hiking and biking, and playing at the park with their dogs. The Wharton family are active supporters of Susan G Komen, as well as a number of local and national charities.
