WE WIN CASES IN MATTERS OF PERSONAL INJURY, CAR ACCIDENTS AND CRIMINAL CASES.

TEXAS CAR ACCIDENT AND  PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY

Few things are worse than sustaining an injury that could have been prevented. Fortunately, if another party is responsible for your injuries, you may be entitled to personal injury compensation under Texas law. If you have been injured because of someone else’s negligence or wrongful action, you need to contact a Houston personal injury attorney as soon as possible to learn more about your options.

ABOUT PERSONAL INJURY CASES

Personal injury cases can involve many different types of incidents, including car accidents, trucking accidents slip and falls, medical malpractice and more. If your personal injury case is successful, you may be able to collect compensation for medical bills, lost wages and estimated future expenses related to the injury. However, in order to collect this personal injury compensation, you need to prove to the court that another person or organization is responsible for your injuries. You must also file your claim within a specific amount of time after the incident in order to qualify for personal injury compensation.

HIRING A PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY IN HOUSTON, TX

Personal injury cases can be complicated, but an experienced personal injury attorney can make sure that you have all of the information and resources you need to build a strong case. Your personal injury attorney will help you collect evidence, locate witnesses and develop solid arguments for court. If the other side offers a settlement, your attorney will help you determine whether it is an appropriate amount.

 

TEXAS CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY

If you are facing criminal charges in the Houston area, it is crucial that you do everything you can to protect your right to a fair trial. If you have been arrested and charged with a crime, you should contact an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. An experienced Houston criminal defense attorney can make sure that your constitutional and statutory rights are protected.

WHY YOU SHOULD HIRE US

You should also never talk to police before first speaking to your attorney. No matter what questions police may ask, you have a right to remain silent under the Fifth Amendment – you should always exercise it if you have been arrested.

HOW WE CAN HELP YOU & YOUR CASE

Great Lawyers
For anybody looking for experience lawyers and for a reasonable price this is it. I didn’t have the money up front and explain my financial problem but they lowered their rate and did a payment plan. My lawyer Sanam did a really great job on my case and help me understand what I was dealing with and I can’t thank her enough for her kindness and patience. Thank you guys
