Lex Townsley

Born and raised in Lake Charles, Louisiana, Lex is a trial lawyer based out of our Austin office. You could say that being a trial lawyer runs in the family, as many members of his family are personal injury attorneys as well. Seeing his family’s dedication to helping injured individuals stand up to insurance companies and get the compensation they deserve has always inspired him to become a lawyer. Now, he helps injured victims find treatment, seek justice, and get their lives back on track.

Before joining the team at Zinda Law Group, Lex attended law school at the University of California Hastings College of Law. While in school, Lex was an avid moot court competitor, participated in a legal clinic, worked as a teaching assistant, and won an award for “Best Oral Advocate,” as well as a CALI award. He completed his undergraduate studies at New York University. During his time with Zinda Law Group, Lex has handled a range of personal injury matters. He primarily focuses on car accidents, dog bite injuries, and premises liability cases. He is currently licensed to practice law in Texas.

In his spare time, Lex enjoys skiing. When he’s not hitting the slopes, you can find him gardening or speaking (fluent) French.
