About Lloyd


Mr. van Oostenrijk graduated magna cum laude from the University of Houston Law Center in 2006. While in law school, he served as an Articles Editor of the Houston Law Review and authored an article on electronic discovery.  His article was selected by his peers as the best comment on business litigation and has since been cited by other legal scholars, as well as by the New Zealand Court of Appeals in the case of Commerce Commission v. Telecom Corporation of New Zealand. Upon graduation, Lloyd was elected to membership in the Order of the Coif, an honor limited to the top 10% of the graduating class.  During his first year of practicing law, Lloyd volunteered to be the lead author of an amicus brief on behalf of the Texas Psychological Association and Texas Appleseed regarding the strict scientific method that should be applied to expert testimony regarding future dangerousness in capital cases.  You can read the brief he authored here.
