Real Estate.

Real Estate law is the branch of law that covers a person's right to land. A lawyer can be helpful and sometimes necessary when disputes regarding property arise between owners of the same property, or owners and their community, or if there is a dispute between renters and landlords. If you are buying, selling, leasing, otherwise transferring interest in a property, or financing a property you should consult an attorney.

Personal Injury & Wrongful Death.

If you have been injured or a loved one was killed as the result of another person's actions you may have the right to compensation. Whether the injury or death was intended or the result of negligence, you and your loved ones have a right to safety, and if that right has been violated you deserve compensation for physical, monetary, and even emotional losses.

Family Law.

Family law pertains to legal matters within a family. This includes the formation of marriages, civil unions, and domestic partnerships, and the termination of such relationships. When such relationships are dissolved, issues of property division, child custody, visitation, and support fall under family law. Issues of paternity can also fall under family law. If a person or couple is looking to adopt it is a legal matter. Child abuse and abduction are also areas of family law. This is not an exhaustive list, and if you are concerned that your family requires legal help, please consult an attorney.

Oil & Gas Law.

There are both state and federal laws governing the acquisition and ownership of gas and oil. These laws can be complicated, and if you are leasing mineral rights or have found gas or oil on your property it would be best to consult an attorney. If a neighbor has found gas on their property you may also wish to consult an attorney.

Business Law.

Owning a business is fraught with legal decisions, and starting one is no easy task. Whether you have an established business or are just starting one, an attorney can help you understand the rights you and your business are afforded. An attorney will also inform you of the responsibilities you owe to your employees and customers to avoid liability. Business law covers business organization, contracts, sales, employment, and more.

Corporate Litigation.

In 1973 Texas passed the Deceptive Trade Practices Act (DTPA). The DTPA is intended to protect consumers against misleading, deceptive, and unconscionable actions on the part of a business. As an extreme example: claiming that your lotion could cure cancer became illegal. This act is just one aspect of corporate litigation, and it is important to hire an attorney who is familiar with corporate law to handle your litigation proceedings.
