Among the best!
We were sued by an individual over a house that we worked on as new construction. Mr Saunders was able to beat them in court the first time with no problem. After the individual dropped the suit in Denton County, he refiled in Dallas County. We went through 22 months of litigation, and again, with the help of Mr. Saunders, we were successful in the outcome. Then they sued us a third time in Dallas County for a personal injury that they tried to tie to the house that had alleged defective plumbing. Mr. Saunders was successful that round, as well. I have worked with several attorneys in the past, and Mr Saunders is among the best. His professionalism is unsurpassed. He is extremely responsive to the needs of his client, and keeps the client updated throughout the case. Even during busy times when I had to leave a message, my call was returned in a timely manner. I highly recommend him!

At all times he is thorough and ethical, and was vigilant of his client's interests in coming to a fair and creative resolution to our case. I highly recommend him."
Litigation Attorney | Feb 14
Relationship: Co-worker
"Brantley Saunders served as my mentor out of law school in 1997, has been my close friend since that time, and is my trusted law partner. If my family was in need of a litigator for their business or personal dispute (and I couldn't assist them), I would refer them to Brantley and know they were in excellent hands. He is a credit to the legal profession, a gentleman, and one of the best legal minds I have ever encountered."
