Frequently Asked Questions

1. What kind of cases do you handle?
We handle a wide range of cases including breach of contract, business & commercial disputes, construction litigation, serious personal injury claims, and more.

2. Do you provide free telephone consultations?

No, but our website contains a wealth of information about the most common types of matters that fall within our areas of practice.

3. Do you handle cases outside of the North Texas area?

We have attorneys licensed to practice law throughout the State of Texas in both state and federal court; however, it is usually more cost effective for a client to hire an attorney with offices near the place where a lawsuit is or will be filed.

4. How much does a typical lawsuit cost?

There is no “typical” cost for a lawsuit. The cost of every case depends on the particular facts and issues, how quickly the case can be resolved, as well as how difficult and aggressive the other party and its attorney are.  We can help you plan a litigation budget that is right for your case.

5. How long does a typical lawsuit take start to finish?

It depends on the particular facts and issues and the willingness of the parties to settle. Many lawsuits settle within the first six months.  Others may take a year or more.  It is unlikely for a case to be reached for trial within the first year, and it is not unusual to take 2-3 years for an ordinary lawsuit to go to trial.

6. How much do you charge?

Our attorneys typically charge hourly rates between $350 and $500 depending on many factors including their experience, and our paraprofessionals typically charge between $100 and $150 per hour. These are customary and usual hourly rates for the North Texas area.
