Meet Our Team
With two lawyers, one paralegal, and a small army of supporting vendors and contractors, we put the "company" in Jon Selden & Company.
Jon Selden, Attorney
Jon is a seasoned litigator with over a decade of experience—ranging from personal injury and wrongful death matters to commercial disputes to maritime cargo and collision cases.
He founded the firm in 2008 to fight for good people hurt by the reckless decisions of others—especially drunk drivers. Previously, Jon worked for personal injury firms in Houston and Austin and one of the oldest maritime law firms in Houston, where he frequently climbed aboard troubled ships in the Houston Ship Channel.
Selden attended law school at Gonzaga University School of Law and the University of Houston Law Center. He graduated with his juris doctor degree in December 2003. He is licensed to practice law in both Texas and Washington.
Selden received a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science and a minor in journalism at Brigham Young University, where he graduated in 2001.
Selden married fellow Austin lawyer Suzette Selden in 2003 and they are the proud parents of a baby girl named Posey. They live in Westlake Hills, where Jon is active in his community and church. He is an Eagle Scout and volunteers with a local Boy Scouts of America troop. He hikes and snowboards in his native Pacific Northwest as often as he can—but not nearly often enough.
Suzette Selden, Attorney
Suzette has extensive experience representing consumers and businesses in insurance disputes and other civil litigation matters.
She has represented insureds and claimants in matters involving liability insurance, life insurance, homeowners, commercial property, commercial automobile, automobile, health, and disability. Additionally, she has represented clients in varying practice areas, including insurance litigation, deceptive trade practices, business disputes, securities litigation, and construction defect cases.
Suzette was selected by Thomson Reuters for inclusion in 2012 - 2015 Texas Rising Stars® publication, an honor only 2.5 percent of lawyers in the state received. She was profiled in the 2014 edition in a feature story entitled "The Closer."
Suzette currently serves as the President of the Capital Area Trial Lawyers Association. She has co-authored the Annual Survey of Texas Insurance Law in 2007 and 2009 - 2015.

Before becoming a lawyer, Suzette worked as a television news producer for an ABC affiliate station in Washington state and interned for Dateline NBC in New York City. She also worked for International Sports Broadcasting during the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.
Dani Yero, Paralegal
Dani Yero graduated from Texas A&M University in 2014 with a degree in Leadership Development and minors in both Agriculture and Business.
After graduation, she worked as a Medical Records Specialist for a medical record retrieval company that works for law firms all over the country.
With a love for helping people and an interest in law, she pursued a career as a paralegal. After a move back to her Austin roots, she started working for Jon Selden & Company.
In her free time, she enjoys volunteering with YoungLIfe Ministries, traveling, and spending time with family and friends
