Carl R. Houston, a California native, is an attorney with successful experience in commercial and civil litigation, including general casualty, complex/toxic tort, construction, product liability, professional liability and first-party cases. Mr. Houston graduated from the University of Southern California’s Marshall School of Business, with a B.S. degree in Business Administration (emphasis in Finance and Marketing). After two years working as a marketing and merchandising analyst, Mr. Houston earned his Juris Doctorate from the University of Oregon School of Law, where he received a Law Award of Excellence Scholarship.

Prior to joining Wright Finlay & Zak in 2017, Mr. Houston worked at a national firm for 5½ years, where he served as a senior associate that represented a variety of clients. During that time, Mr. Houston consistently obtained favorable results in which clients were dismissed (e.g. motions for summary judgment) and paid nothing. The foregoing led to Mr. Houston being listed by Super Lawyers as a Rising Star (Mountain States) from 2015-2017. Mr. Houston’s practice is now focused on real estate litigation, representing the interests of lenders and servicers, including HOA lien law, wrongful foreclosure defense, fair debt collection practices defense and title dispute matters. Mr. Houston is admitted to the State of Nevada and United States District Court for the District of Nevada, where he regularly practices. He is also a member of the Las Vegas Defense Lawyers.
