Civil Litigation

Our broad experience in all phases of civil litigation enables us to analyze every step of a lawsuit based on our client's goals. Our unique approach to each court case is influenced by our handling of scores of lawsuits in diverse areas of the law.

Employment Litigation

Ask your neighbor—would they rather suffer an injury today and fully recover after several months and $10,000 in out of pocket expenses, or would they rather lose their job today. You will likely be surprised by the answers you get. The loss of a job can be as devastating as a significant injury, or even the death of a loved one. The loss of a job immediately puts your financial future at risk, especially if the job is a high-paid, high-functioning position. The more important the job, the longer it will take normally to replace it. When the former employer has bad motives and seeks to hurt you, it is even harder.

While sometimes there is little relief for an employee, under current state and federal law some protections may exist. Our employment litigation cases typically include violations of the various statutes prohibiting harassment in the workplace based on race, sex, religion, national origin, disability, and age. We also handle retaliation claims under the Family & Medical Leave Act, the Texas Whistleblower Act, and the Texas Workers' Compensation Act. Additionally, we represent clients in employment contract litigation, typically concerning non-competition and non-solicitation disputes.

If you believe that you have a possible employment law claim, do not wait to seek representation. There are very short time limits and filing requirements to preserve a claim in many of these cases, so do not delay in evaluation of your claim.

Business Litigation

The small business is the engine that runs the American economy. When a small businessman is unfairly attacked by a competitor, when business secrets are stolen, or when a larger business uses its financial leverage to breach its agreements with impunity, it hurts American families that depend upon that small business. The outcome in business litigation cases is often critically important to the livelihoods of many families and several generations of the business owner's family. It is common to have thousands of pages of exhibits and dozens of witnesses in these important cases. When results really matter, the corporate or business attorney will need help in preparing and trying these cases.

We represent individuals and businesses in commercial matters including corporate and partnership issues, consumer disputes, contract matters, and other disputes common to businesses. We also provide a broad range of services that includes advising clients regarding setting up new business entities, drafting corporate documents, and advising clients regarding compliance with federal, state and local laws.

We also represent clients in contract disputes, fraud and business related torts, and violations of the Deceptive Trade Practices and similar consumer laws.

Most civil litigation cases incur hourly fees; however, selected civil litigation may be handled on contingent-fee basis. The court costs of preparing the lawsuit and other expenses can be paid by either our firm or you depending upon a number of factors. Fees and costs are discussed with clients at the outset of the case.
