We Embody the Spirit, Grit, and Work Ethic of the West Why We Do What We Do

Everything we do – every decision we make, every client we choose to work with, every case we file – is driven by our desire to level the playing field for working-class Texans. Each of our attorneys come from humble beginnings and know the value of hard work. Our fathers and grandfathers were farmers, mechanics, laborers, firefighters, and enlisted military – and we haven’t forgotten where we come from. We’ve intentionally chosen not to represent corporations or the 1 percenters. Instead, we advocate for people like us – hardworking, family-oriented West Texans who simply want to give their kids a better life than they had. Sometimes that means standing up to big insurance companies that are trying to give you the short-end of the stick. Other times, that means not backing down when oil companies try to bully our clients. Regardless of the adversary, know our mission remains the same – to level the playing field for people like me and you.
