Saved my non-profit
I came to Mr. Broemer for help after a coup began to illegitimately attempt to force me out of my own non-profit corporation. Mr. Broemer guided me step by step on certain preemptive measures which protected me and my company. His knowledge and expertise made this possible. He is very approachable and kept everything on a personal level. He spent almost two hours with my wife and I and could have charged me a great deal for his time which I was easily willing to pay, and is the industry standard, but he treated it as a consultation. If you ever need an attorney to fight for you put Mr. Broemer in your corner.

Broken Contract.
We had a problem with a furniture company and we contacted Mr Broemer. He advised us what we could do legally. We talked with the company managers again and when they found out that we had consulted with Mr Broemer they decided to work with us in resolving our issue with them!! Thank You Mr Broemer!

Every Business Needs This Lawyer!
I own a business in the Sign Industry. I hired Fulton to help me deal with a fraudulent labor issue that could've potentially put me out of business. At the time I hired Fulton I felt overwhelmed and lost. It felt as if every government agency was bombarding me and demanding rapid fire responses. The need to immediately address everything paralyzed me and my business. When I met with Fulton regarding my need for help it was more than his expertise and knowledge that he brought to the table. It was his "We Got This - You're Ok - Not a Problem " demeanor and attitude that helped me personally. Knowing you have a guy like Fulton on your side, who is in it with you was everything to me. Fulton took care of the fraudulent labor issue, I am ok, and it's no longer a problem. Thank You Fulton.

Highly Recommend!
Mr. Broemer assisted my family and I with our estate planning. This could not have been a smoother process! We were rather last minute with our needs to Mr. Broemer but he and his team were right on it and got our plans put in place. Not only is he a great lawyer but a wonderful person who gives back to the community. I know I can count on him and would highly recommend him to anyone!

Turned what could have been a difficult process into a very easy, stress-free positive conlusion
I was referred to Fulton by our broker. I called and left a message on a Friday thinking I would hear back the next week. Fulton called back within 30 minutes and started working right away. I was extremely pleased with the service and expertise the Fulton provided as well as the time line. Fulton communicated effectively so all my expectations were met and exceeded.

Very Helpful and Honest!
Fulton helped me set up employee agreements (non-competes) for my business. He was very thorough and honest about what we were facing and I always felt like he went the extra mile. He was very fairly priced and stayed within a budget we had requested. I would certainly use him again.

Exceptional & Personable Performance
Fulton Broemer provides extremely exceptional service. He has always conducted himself in a manner which is outstanding, as compared to other litigators I’ve come to know over my forty years in business. Foremost, he has often made time to address my special or urgent needs promptly, by answering and initiating calls after hours and on weekends. Secondly, his method of consultation is extremely personable. He always presents his opinions and strategies in a direct and easily understood manner, and is responsive to my concerns and opinions. As the CEO of a mid-size corporation, my need for litigation support is not frequent, but is most often of a very critical nature. Without hesitation, my first thought is to call Fulton, which is perhaps the best possible measure of my endorsement. In the end, I can name a number of good attorneys for various purposes, but honestly admit I’m most comfortable and confident when I’m dealing with Fulton.

More than I expected
Mr. Broemer was able to get my former employer to release my pension fund with only ONE letter. That one letter reflected his knowledge of the law and contained all the backup references needed to avoid litigation. His attention to detail and cutting to the chase was quite impressive. The situation could have easily escalated to a lengthy battle; however, Mr. Broemer was able to resolve the issue in one blow. It was a pleasure dealing with such a honest and straightforward attorney!

Employment Law
Fulton has worked for my company or client companies for over 20 years. I owned an employment agency for close to 15 years. He helped me learn and understand the appropriate employment law for my industry. This allowed me to prevent problems or deal with them myself up to a certain point. I appreciated that he took the time to teach me about the applicable law as well as just dispensing advice. Over the course of time, he handled many legal situations for my company including a situation where my firm was sued. We got into jury selection before the case was settled. In that experience I found him to be the guy you want on your side. He is a smart, knowledgable and determined litigator and as well as an attorney that attempts to keep his client out of the courtroom when possible. But he knows how to put up a good fight when required. One unusual trait that I have appreciated is this: Fulton uses less of that 'gray area' legal speak than many attornies I've dealt with. He is capable of definitive statements that proove out over time. He doesn't waste my time (running up the fees). He knows how to have a brief, and to the point conversation providing me with the information I need without wasting my time and money. Beyond, all of that, I have found Fulton to be highly ethical and most of all, just a basically good person. I highly recommend Fulton for your legal needs.

401K Plan Correction
Fulton addressed our problem in a very professional, pragmatic manner. He kept my panic in check and dealt with my issue quickly and cost-effectively. I feel so much better having met and hired Fulton to represent us. He has a great office too!

Ethical, expert, and honest
I contacted Mr. Broemer via AVVO regarding a problem with my LTD insurer. He was very up-front with me about the realities of an ERISA action and what it would cost me to seek representation and helped me understand what information I should gather to make our initial consult most productive. It was later though that Mr. Broemer truly impressed me the most. I had to ask him today, still not having finished prep for the consult, whether I should work with him or, since I will be moving soon, a lawyer nearer my new home. He not only answered honestly in terms of what would probably work best for me, but also advised me on how the courts in each of the two areas differed. I can't praise him enough for his straight-forward and honest answers and believe he has helped me make a better decision, even though, in the end, this may mean I seek representation in my new home, not in Houston. When seeking a lawyer you can really trust, ask yourself... how many would honestly advise you to seek other counsel in their own area of specialty out of consideration for your convenience and best outcomes, even if it meant they would perhaps not make a penny? How many would spend the time advising you in e-mail how to prepare to make the first consult the most productive use of your money? Mr. Broemer is not only highly ethical, he seems to genuinely care. Even if I don't end up engaging him, I will remain ever thankful for his kind advice.
