We take pride in finding pragmatic solutions to complex problems. The attorneys at our Texas law firm truly listen to our clients—an approach we feel is essential to our success in finding solutions through mediation.

While litigation through trial is sometimes the only way to resolve a matter, once a case reaches its endpoint and is before the court or a jury, the parties have lost any self-determination in deciding the outcome.

Even the best litigators will admit that no matter how strong a case appears, this element of the unknown precludes any guarantee of a favorable outcome.

In the vast majority of legal disputes, an outside perspective and creative, out-of-the-box mediation can settle a case in a timely fashion, before the mounting costs of litigation are incurred.

Our legal experience, both inside and outside the courtroom, can be a valuable tool in providing a realistic and neutral overview of issues. We help parties find a resolution while each side maintains control over the outcome of the case.

Our San Antonio attorneys and Austin office provide creative mediation services, grounded in our experience and commitment to listening carefully to our clients.

For many individuals and business owners, the process of seeking bankruptcy protection feels overwhelming—which is why our team is committed to truly listening to our clients and maintaining prompt, clear communication.

The laws and process of bankruptcy have been enacted specifically to allow people to stabilize their debt situation and gain a new start.

Here’s the important thing to remember: bankruptcy is a tool to be used in the right circumstances.

Our San Antonio attorneys and Austin legal office provide thoughtful, communicative bankruptcy counseling to individuals and business owners. If you or your business are in over your head, we can answer your questions and guide you through the process.

Elder law planning helps you prepare and set aside funds for the future health complications that sometimes accompany growing older. This approach seeks to preserve some income and assets to cover the costs of long-term care services, whether at home or in a nursing facility.

We also help clients plan for guardianship. While designating Powers of Attorney can give you control over who will make which decisions for you, should you become incapacitated, POA doesn’t cover everything. Nominating a guardian fills in the gaps and ensures the court knows your preference if a guardian ever needs to be appointed.

Likewise, we work with clients on Medicaid planning—which more people are eligible for than they realize—and special needs and veterans’ benefits.
