Jibraeel "Jib" Zaidi has considered himself a Texan for the last 15 years. He attended the University of Texas at Austin where he majored in Economics and Philosophy before attending the SMU Dedman School of Law, where he graduated with honors. After law school, Jib started his own practice where he successfully defended a breach of contract and fraud claim and successfully counter-sued for a six figure verdict. Afterwards, he joined a Dallas personal injury practice for several years before finding his home at EbersteinWitherite, LLP.
While in law school, Jib was an extern to the Honorable Justice Elizabeth Lang-Miers at the Fifth Court of Appeals, served as Assistant Managing Editor for the International Law Review, and was the 2L Representative for the Student Bar Association. He was also a member of the Mac Taylor Inn of Court and the volunteer with the Dallas Kids Project.
From the beginning, Jib aggressively pursued a career as a trial attorney. Jib was an active competitor in law school, with high placements at the National level ABA Arbitration Competition and National level Client Counseling Competition. His advocacy was recognized by induction into the Nation Order of the Barristers in his 3L year. After graduation, he pursued his passion for trial work by joining a personal injury practice and has loved it ever since. He transitioned to Eberstein Witherite where he enjoys the culture of providing quality dynamic representation tovictims of car and truck wrecks, while building personal relationships with his clients.
In his spare time, Jib enjoys reading, going to the gym, travelling, and binging on Netflix.
