We have had success in federal and state  courts, from trial through the appellate process, in administrative forums, and in arbitrations.

The firm is rated AV by Martindale Hubbell and is recognized for high professional legal standards and ethics by the Martindale Hubbell Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers. 

 

Located in Houston, Texas, we represent clients in all Houston area courts, the counties of south Texas, and in other areas of the state. Our litigation attorneys have strong advocacy skills, and extensive litigation experience in performing the standard duties of a trial attorney, including initial factual investigations, drafting pleadings, counseling witnesses, conducting hearings and depositions, and representing clients at trial. Our experience shows us that the effective performance of these tasks is critical to a successful outcome in litigation matters, for these form the basis upon which claims and defenses are established or defeated. Successful results in litigated matters are often determined by which party’s attorney identifies and exploits the strategic weakness of the other party’s case. Early identification of these strategic points is also crucial to a cost effective presentation of the case. Because of our experience, we can provide our clients with initial case evaluation, goal determination, strategic planning, and strong advocacy skills. Our attorneys work closely with clients to determine litigation goals, strategies, and budgets. After initial client consultation, when the direction of the case is determined, our goal is simple: to achieve the client’s targeted legal result as effectively and efficiently as possible.
