LAW OFFICES OF PAUL G. VICK
The Law Offices of Paul G. Vick opened in June 1995. The firm is dedicated to the representation of small businesses and individuals, primarily in the areas of litigation and organization. In addition, the firm actively practices in the areas of mediation and alternate dispute resolution.
Fees are generated by hourly billing rates of $250.00 per hour, as well as mediation fees per party of $500.00 for half-day mediation to $1,000.00 per party for full-day mediation. Many of our litigation cases are handled on a contingent fee basis. This arrangement consists of attorney fees equal to an average of forty (40%) percent of the total amount of recovery on a case, either through settlement or jury verdict. Fees are not paid until a recovery is obtained.
II. FIRM PHILOSOPHY
The firm, when feasible, handles cases for those businesses and individuals where hourly billing is not practical. Many small businesses and individuals simply can not absorb the cost of hourly rates in order to pursue valid claims against larger and more financially empowered entities. It is these clients, as well as those which are retained on an hourly basis, that the firm has attracted since its inception, and with a great degree of success.
Some of the most notable cases handled by our firm include the following:
· Obtained a successful jury verdict on behalf of a commercial real estate broker on a commission dispute involving a commercial office building. This verdict was upheld by the Texas Supreme Court.
· Obtained a favorable ruling from the Texas Supreme Court regarding Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Texas resulting in confidential settlement for fraudulent misrepresentation of health policy benefits;
· Obtained a $1.35 million jury verdict in Federal District Court against a municipality on behalf of a small business owner who contracted with the city and was subjected to abuse of process violations by the city. This case was briefed and argued twice before the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans, resulting in a settlement of the jury verdict.
· Obtained the seconds largest age discrimination jury verdict in the State of Texas in 2012 on behalf of an advertising executive who was wrongfully terminated from his employment based upon his age. The case was tried to a jury in State District Court in Dallas County, Texas.
