We also advise our insurance clients on coverage and extra-contractual issues, handle administrative hearings and appeals, and defend class actions on premium overcharge and coverage issues.

  • Commercial Litigation

    We handle a variety of commercial litigation matters including complex collection cases, banking litigation, breach of contract, Deceptive Trade Practices Act litigation, business torts and labor and employment matters. We represent businesses as plaintiffs and defend them in cases where they have been sued. Our attorneys have represented clients ranging from sole proprietors to Fortune 500 companies.

  • Appeals

    Our attorneys have handled oral argument in the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, Texas Supreme Court, and numerous courts of appeal from El Paso to Houston. We have the resources and experience to handle your case from trial through appeal.

  • Administrative Law

    We are experienced in medical fee disputes, workers' compensation benefits cases, and insurance agency licensing and compliance issues. With our background in commercial and insurance litigation, we are able to handle petitions for judicial review at the district court and appellate levels with the same team of lawyers who tried the administrative matter, saving the client the time and expense of educating a new set of lawyers on issues already researched and presented.

Our attorneys are experienced in litigation and business counseling affecting the construction industry. We integrate our expertise in commercial litigation, insurance law and administrative law in serving our construction clients. In approaching construction disputes, our objective is always to resolve the matter quickly, efficiently, and in a manner satisfactory to our clients. However, our extensive commercial litigation experience enables us to handle the prosecution or defense of the claim with the skill and intensity necessary to preserve the rights of our clients, in the event a settlement cannot be reached.
