Civil Litigation Services

The firm's business model is based on the small and/or solo practice law firm that was common in an earlier era. Specifically, the firm is a general civil practice that represents individuals, families, and small to mid-size businesses in a variety of matters and disputes.

The firm seldom handles matters involving criminal prosecutions, but it has realized some of its greatest successes in civil lawsuits with criminal implications involving:

  • false arrest.
  • malicious prosecution.
  • antitrust violations.
  • fraud against the government.

Practice Areas

The primary practice areas of the firm are:

  • Commercial/Consumer Litigation
  • Personal Injury Litigation
  • Family Law Litigation
    • Divorce
    • Custody
    • Estates

Benefits and Cost of Services

Key benefits of our small practice business model are direct access to the attorney actually handling your representation and flexibility in terms of the attorney compensation structure.

Contingent Fee Representation

Personal injury and consumer cases are typically handled on a contingent fee basis. Under this agreement, the firm's fees and case expenses are paid from the recovery, so the client does not have to pay out of their pocket for the legal and investigative services and case expenses.

Hourly/Blended Rate Litigation

The firm's organization permits flexibility in fee structuring for commercial litigation matters. We represent a number of clients on unique, individually tailored, reduced hourly/blended rate fee structures. Many of the firm's clients originate by referral from large regional law firms whose fee committee rules do not permit this unique attorney compensation structure.

Hourly Rate Litigation

The firm's hourly rates are consistent with traditional attorney billing, and are adjusted periodically based on market considerations. The firm's hourly attorney rates are generally 10-20% below those billed by mid-sized and large law firms in the Texas market area. Our considerably lower cost structure allows us to offer savings to our clients, without sacrificing skill and expertise.
