We have obtained judgment on behalf of our clients after trial in numerous cases. Our strategy starts from the first day we meet with our clients to develop a comprehensive strategy for the entire litigation. We set the ultimate goal of prevailing at trial, but we utilize discovery and motion practice to position our clients to prevail in the litigation as early as possible.
We have represented our clients in courts of appeals throughout the state, and we have prevailed before the Texas Supreme Court. We plan all of our litigations to ensure that we preserve arguments for appeal where needed and position our client to prevail on appeal. Following is a non-exclusive list of cases affirmed on appeal:
- 2012 Tex. App. LEXIS 4580 (Tex. App. Dallas June 11, 2012);
- 2011 Tex. App. LEXIS 9719 (Tex. App. Houston [14th Dist.] Dec. 13, 2011)
- 345 S.W.3d 204 (Tex. App. Dallas 2011)
- 2011 Tex. App. LEXIS 1652 (Tex. App. Houston [14th Dist.] Mar. 8, 2011, pet. denied)
Private arbitration of disputes is becoming more common. Many consumer and business contracts now include arbitration provisions requiring the parties to submit their dispute to private arbitration rather than through a court. We have worked on complex arbitrations involving more than fifty parties, and we also have experience with less-complex arbitrations as well. In general, your rights (other than going to court) should not be infringed by an arbitration agreement, and we have experience not only in arbitration, itself, but also in challenging and defending the validity of arbitration provisions.
We are trained mediators, and we have significant experience representing our clients in mediation. We have settled many cases at mediation. Mediation is the process where parties agree to meet with a mediator to determine if a settlement can be negotiated. We work with our clients to make sure they understand their best alternative to a negotiated agreement so that they can determine whether to accept a settlement offer or proceed with litigation.
