Polly Fohn

Haynes and Boone LLP

Polly Fohn has argued to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals and Texas appellate courts and has been involved in appeals of some of the largest jury verdicts in Texas since graduating from Harvard Law School in 2008.

She served as a clerk for Judge R. Lanier Anderson on the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals and has spoken on preservation of error at the Advanced Personal Injury Course and on summary judgment practice at the Advanced Civil Trial Course.

For example, she persuaded a trial court to render a take-nothing judgment in the face of an adverse multimillion dollar jury verdict. She also successfully petitioned an en banccourt of appeals to reverse a panel decision and render judgment for her client.

Polly has collaborated with trials teams to obtain summary judgments, helped negotiate settlements, and independently argued jury charges in high stakes litigation.

As member of the editorial board for The Houston Lawyer magazine, she writes columns on topics ranging from reviews of new legal books to profiles of prominent local lawyers. Polly gives back to her community as a Young Leader of the United Way of Greater Houston.
