Attorney's are hired because of a conflict or problem that needs solving.  The Goal of my Firm is to successfully resolve the issue for which we are hired,  in my clients best interest, and do so cost effectively!  This requires not only a superior understanding of the law but, it also requires effective communication with the client.  Not every client has a realistic understanding and expectations of all aspects of their case, or know all of their options.  Effective communication is the key.  It is important that the attorney has the necessary energy, skills and confidence to go to battle for the client, this means take the case to trial if necessary,  and win!! My firm has a track record of aggresive representation through all phases of litigation whether it is a criminal case or civil matter, such as a personal injury, business dispute or family law issue.

The Anderson Law Firm is our TEXAS Firm!
Heck, I live in Austin a city jam packed with lawyers and I drive 300 miles for Darren's trusted counsel. Darren and his expert legal team have advised my family on all of our legal issues with excellent results in each case. The firm has assisted our family with personal injury, construction defects, family issues, and criminal cases. One recent case I would like to highlight is Darren and team represented us on a personal injury incident and fought tooth and nail for justice!! The insurance company wanted to settle for 500.00!! My wife's injury was substantial and we thought that was a slap in our faces! We go see Darren and to make a long story short, that 500 ended up being several thousand when the case was resolved. Darren delivered our justice! Darren has even went so far as to advise me on a criminal case my daughter was involved in Arizona, that's right, ARIZONA!. His firm made some calls to the local prosecutor's and legal offices and obtained very helpful information we used to make the correct legal moves in Arizona resulting in a "Case Dismissed" outcome!! That's going above and beyond for his clients. Bottom line is Darren and his expert team are achievers and get positive results. I will testify to that and you folks that live with Darren right in your back yard are blessed to have his firm so close to you because the Anderson Law firm is my TEXAS firm!

I have been using Darren as my attorney for 15 years now. He has won every case I have hired him for. I have hired him for my husband, son, daughter and my brother. He is very professional and efficient. I have total confidence in his representation. If you want to win then hire the Beast that's what I call him.

He went above and beyond for me and my family!
I was in car accident and had suffered some knee and neck injuries because of the crash. I had lots of troubles trying to settle with the Insurance Company directly, so I decided to get in contact with a law firm. At first I had a bad experience with a previous attorney I had hired a different place. So I had done lots of research, before hiring Mr. Anderson. He exceeded all my expectations! He has aggressive, engaging and I could tell he truly had my best interest at heart.

Custody Case
I felt very comfortable when I consulted with Mr. Anderson. I felt he immediately took my case very personal. There was never a time I didn't feel I could call to reassure my fears. I would highly recommend Mr. Anderson to anyone, and I do often.

Darren Anderson was very understanding , listens very well when talking to him about my case. He was honest an never once mislead me on my case. He has been amazing blessing. He did what he said he would . An not only won one but two of my case's. Very timely fashion. I had use other lawyers who drag the case on lied to me gave me false hope , and took my money . Mr. Anderson didn't he top lawyer in my area. I love the fact he a fighter and won't give up. He worth every dime he ask me for. When you have a lawyer who does what they say money no option. I will use him again if needed . I highly recommend him above all . Thank you Mr. Anderson truly a blessing

Mold Issues
We had mold in our home several years ago. And we didn't know what to do or who to go to. So we called Darren Anderson. He helped us with the insurance company, getting them to pay for the damages to our home and the contractors who we had to have to remediate the home. He got it handled for us in a timely manner and were able to not stress about dealing with insurance company and contractor.
