TO US

When you work with us, you will never fight alone

  • "I have spent more than three decades representing people who have been harmed or wronged.

    It is amazing how many times, while waiting on a jury verdict, my client has turned to me and said, "Susan, regardless of how this turns out, you told my story, and I got my day in court. I was heard and I thank you." Each time has been a great gift to me. In each case, I learn not only about my client, but about myself. Sometimes I am frustrated with the process, but I have great faith in our jury system and am grateful for the chance to be a part of it."

Employment Law
for Employees

quoteFirst they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.

Your rights in the workplace extend far beyond the right to pursue compensation for an injury. While Texas is an at-will employment state, that does not give employers the unchecked right to take any adverse employment action for any reason.

When you take a lawful action that your employer does not like, such as blowing the whistle on a dangerous or unethical practice, there is a chance that your employer may unlawfully retaliate against you. Other employers have been known to terminate employees for illegal reasons, such as reasons related to a constitutionally protected trait. We can help you take action to address issues such as:

Sexual Harassment

Under no circumstances is it acceptable for anyone in your workplace to touch or grab you without your permission. Sexual harassment may also include unwanted behaviors like making repeated sexual comments or "jokes." If you have been sexually harassed, you may have certain legal protections available, often including the right to compensation. Continue Reading

Discrimination

No employer may take adverse employment action against a worker due to the worker's membership in a constitutionally protected group. In some cases, employers may unlawfully discriminate against employees based on protected characteristics such as religion, race, national origin, gender or sexuality, and age. Continue Reading

Personal Injury

If you were harmed by another party who was acting carelessly, you may be entitled to compensation. We can help you if you were injured in a motor vehicle accident, such as a car wreck or commercial truck accident. Our attorneys also handle nonsubscriber work injuries and wrongful death claims.


Criminal Defense

Our attorneys understand how easy it is for a person to become caught up in the criminal justice system, whether they have truly done something wrong or not. Our aggressive criminal defense attorneys will fight to uphold your rights and to achieve the best outcome possible so that you can keep moving forward in life.
