Mr. Akers' law practice started at Vinson & Elkins, one of the nation's largest firms, before he joined Phillips & Akers as a Shareholder. In 2014, after Phillips Akers Womac merged with a large, regional firm, he commenced his own practice with The Akers Firm. He has tried to verdict over 400 lawsuits, including a wide range of subject areas: products liability, premises liability, retailer liability, construction, railroad, truck and automotive, and many and various business-related matters.

Mr. Akers has served on a Pattern Jury Charge Committee for over 30 years, making him the longest-serving Pattern Jury Charge member in the state. He was the chair of the Negligence Committee for 10 years, and currently is a member of the Oversight Committee.

He is the principal author of The Trial Lawyer Series of books published by Knowles Publishing, a multi-volume set of instructional books for civil trial lawyers.

In 1996, the Texas Association of Defense Counsel honored Mr. Akers with its President™s Award for his service to that organization through his legislative activities.

Mr. Akers has been married since 1984 to Colleen Cullen Akers and has three children. His oldest son, Cordt Akers, spent years at the District Attorney’s office as a prosecutor, then joined the pre-eminent criminal defense firm, Cogdell Law Firm, where he practiced for several years before joining The Akers Firm. His daughter Allison Akers is a former school teacher, currently a stay at home mom. His son Bradley runs two companies—one a roofing company, Republic Roof Systems, and the other a digital marketing company, Elevated Marketing Solutions. He is the proud grandfather of Benjamin Akers, Camila Gras, and Logan Akers. He is active in various church-related groups and serves on various boards of charitable institutions.
