Family Law


How do you go about deciding which entity to choose when forming your business?  

This decision is important and largely depends on the type of business you are creating.  Some questions to think about when forming your entity:


  • How much personal liability am I comfortable with?

  • Am I forming an entity with other people?  

  • What are the tax implications associated with each business entity?

Construction Law



We cover a wide range of legal issues including contract, negligence, bonds and bonding, guarantees and sureties, liens and other security interests, tendering, construction claims, and related consultancy contracts.


Our clients include financial institutions, surveyors, architects, builders, engineers, construction workers, and planners.

Criminal Law



Have you or a loved one been arrested and need representation?


Has your home builder left you out in the rain? 


If you’ve been taken advantage of or defrauded, the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act protects most consumers by allowing for recovery in most cases.


Let us help you get what you deserve.
