First and foremost, our Firm's attorneys believe in strict adherence to the highest ethical standards, and personal integrity is preeminent in their practice. Our Firm's attorneys conduct their practices with these principles in mind while working within the framework of the legal system's traditional values, which we believe enables us to fully achieve the best possible results for our clients. We are always readily available to our clients, and promptly respond to their needs and requests.
Our Firm consists of trial attorneys. However, we also understand that trial, although sometimes necessary, is not always in the client's best interest. Therefore, our Firm's attorneys will, when appropriate, encourage pre-trial resolution through negotiation, mediation and arbitration. Nevertheless, our Firm's attorneys have taken many cases to trial and stand ready to do so whenever necessary. Our Firm's fundamental objective is to serve the client's best interests in the most cost-effective manner possible, while achieving the results sought by the client.
Our Firm's attorneys have deep roots in Southeast Texas, and we are proud of their active participation and leadership in the local legal community. They participate in a wide range of bar-related, civic and professional activities, which serve to enhance their relationships with the judiciary, fellow attorneys and members of other professions. Our Firm's attorneys have published numerous papers addressing a wide range of legal topics, and have spoken at state and national seminars and forums.
