The Partners in the firm have served as lead counsel throughout the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas and the Northern District of Texas and have gained insight into the various judges and venues. Out of this trial practice has grown a related practice of serving as “local counsel” for law firms from across the United States and assisting in the representation of businesses based both in the United States and abroad. This “local counsel” practice includes assisting in patent cases, commercial litigation, catastrophic injury and other complex cases. The firm provides assistance with local rules, filings and procedures, insight into local judges and juries and has run the spectrum from serving in a consulting role to conducting voir dire and being one of the lead trial attorneys. Local counsel cases are routinely handled in Sherman, Plano, Tyler, Marshall and Texarkana. Our experience with multiple cases, firms and litigation has taught us the importance of flexibility and the ability to mold into part of the team, at whatever level desired by the client and lead counsel.
