Our lead litigators have tried cases at all levels of the judicial system, including federal district court and state district court. Our appellate lawyers have presented appeals to the Supreme Court of Texas, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, and eleven of the fourteen intermediate courts of appeal in Texas. Our attorneys have represented clients before administrative tribunals and have arbitrated cases before the American Arbitration Association and JAMS, Inc.
We strive to provide top-quality legal services in a cost effective and responsive manner. Although we will work with our clients to favorably settle cases before trial, our attorneys enjoy going to trial before a judge or jury when necessary to bring a case to satisfactory resolution. Many of our cases require strategic vision, sophisticated litigation skills, and pose unique challenges presented by complex litigation. We value efficiency and believe it is important to pick our battles wisely – fighting those that serve our clients’ interests and avoiding those that obscure the important issues and needlessly drive-up costs. Litigation is a collaborative process, so the choices that are made in each case are the client’s as well as the attorney’s.
Sophisticated clients understand that staffing cases with experienced and skilled lawyers usually results in lower overall costs. We obtain successful results for our clients through a combination of hard work, analytical skill, creative thinking, and sound judgment.
If you lose your case in civil court (or don’t respond), a judgment will be entered against you. The judge or jury deciding your case may award the other party monetary damages and sometimes, additional amounts such as court costs and/or attorneys’ fees.
If you feel the outcome of the case was incorrect and you have proper grounds to do so, you can pursue further legal remedies with a higher court. A civil litigation attorney who is experienced in appellate law can help determine if you have grounds to appeal, request a new trial, or ask for a bill of review.
If you don’t have grounds to pursue your case with a higher court, you must pay the judgment. If you don’t pay, the other party has several legal options to compel you to pay including placing a judgment lien on your property, and having law enforcement seize your property and bank accounts.
