Entrust Your Complex Legal Matters to Our Experienced Austin Attorneys

Our team of litigation lawyers has extensive and varied jury trial experience in a range of legal areas and issues. Our firm represents individuals, businesses, and corporations in all types of civil litigation, offering skillful guidance to both plaintiffs and defendants.

Many types of disputes can end up in a courtroom and in front of a jury. When that happens, you want a team that feels at home there, that lives there, that has thrived there. You don’t want lawyers that are using your case as a guinea pig or training ground. We can assist you with everything from contract disputes to business torts to holding someone accountable for a fiduciary duty.

We have the experience and dedication to take on complex cases, particularly in the case of construction defect litigation. We assist schools, hospitals, condos, apartments, office buildings, and other property owners with serious matters involving these large projects and have a successful track record of success.

Our Austin attorneys have the knowledge, experience, and skill to prepare and take to trial even the most complicated or toughest of cases. Learn more by visiting our Case Results page or browsing our Client Testimonials page.
