Who We Are
We are a Dallas law firm with a nationally prominent litigation practice. We also have well-known corporate governance, employment, and real estate practices, to name a few. But practice areas don’t define us; our clients do. In Dallas, there is an imposing bigger-than-life statue of a Texas Ranger. It reads: “One riot, one ranger.” That’s the spirit in which we approach every matter. Our clients benefit from the results we deliver – not the number of attorneys we assign.
To us, service means this: We should represent one less worry to our clients. Our reputation for service and responsiveness can be explained simply – we make sure our clients’ interests become our own.
We have a reputation for being lawyers’ lawyers. That is to say, when law firms need counsel, they often turn to us. In fact, a lot of good lawyers refer to us as the second best law firm in town... after their own.
