Barron, Adler, Clough & Oddo, PLLC’s Beginnings

More than 40 years ago, Michael M. Barron and Stephen I. Adler came together to establish a boutique litigation firm that would protect the property rights of their clients. Mr. Barron’s family has long Texas roots and after leaving Groesbeck he graduated from his home state university. Mr. Adler followed opportunity and promise and came to Texas after growing up on the east coast and graduating Princeton University. Both obtained their J.D.’s from the University of Texas and were admitted to the State Bar of Texas. They each had achieved professional successes before launching the law firm. Mr. Barron’s experience included working in the Attorney General’s Office where he rose to chief of the antitrust division. Mr. Adler had started a successful civil rights solo practice only a year out of law school.

Other lawyers have joined the firm in the intervening years. Some represent the best and brightest of attorneys who began their careers as government eminent domain lawyers; others have come to Barron, Adler, Clough & Oddo, PLLC from private litigation and big firm practices.

The firm has grown since its inception, with attorneys representing clients on major projects throughout the state of Texas.
