HOUSTON—The law firm Kane Russell Coleman Logan is growing in the new year. The firm has welcomed two new hires in the past month to its Houston office – David Ellender and Sean Madera. The addition of these attorneys will allow the firm to further bolster both its transactional and litigation services and continue to offer comprehensive representation for its clients in 2019.
David Ellender has joined the firm’s Houston office, where he will represent clients in insurance and liability litigation. He handles a wide variety of cases at the federal and state level, including MDL products liability litigation in federal court to first and third-party personal injury cases. Prior to joining KRCL, David served as first chair defense counsel in first and third-party actions against Geico policyholders in Harris County and surrounding counties. This work, in combination with his more than 10 years of experience representing insured and corporate clients in individual and class action claims of negligence, personal injury, and products liability, enables him to handle everything from complex motion arguments to jury trials and appeals.
Sean Madera also joins the litigation team in the Houston office. Sean advocates for clients in catastrophic personal injuries, premises liability, products liability, transportation-related injuries, insurance coverage, and commercial contracts. With experience on both sides of the docket, Sean deftly navigates complex and lengthy court proceedings to achieve his clients’ desired goals. Sean earned a Juris Doctor from South Texas College of Law, where he graduated as class valedictorian. During his studies, Sean interned at the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Texas Department of Justice Fraud Division, where he aided in investigations and gained invaluable experience in the court system.
“We are happy to welcome David and Sean to the litigation team in Houston,” said Mike Ridulfo, Managing Director of the firm’s Houston office. “I have no doubt that our clients will be impressed by both David and Sean’s diverse experiences and innovative perspectives. They are both astute litigators and will be valuable additions as we continue taking on high stakes litigation.”
