HOUSTON PLAINTIFFS ONLY EMPLOYMENT ATTORNEY

I began my legal career in the management services division of a large, publicly-traded real estate investment trust. In this role I was responsible for the recruitment, hiring, evaluation, promotion and coaching of all employees reporting to me. As a member of the management team, I was driven to learn everything that I could about employment law to protect the company from liability. During this process I learned that many employment laws are so complex that they often provide no protection for employees at all. I wanted to do something to make sure that employees were treated fairly in our legal system. So, in 2006 I established the Dupree Law Firm with a valuable perspective on how companies approach employment law claims.


I am proud to have represented Texas employees for over a decade in cases before the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”), in state and federal court and in private arbitrations. I am confident that my unique background has produced favorable results for my clients. The best part of my job is helping employees who have traditionally been shut out of the legal system get the justice that they deserve.

I am a proud graduate of Florida State University where I completed both my undergraduate and law school education. I am licensed to practice law before state courts in Texas and before federal courts including the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas, the Northern District of Texas, the Eastern District of Texas and the United States Court of Appeal for the Fifth Circuit.

Outside the office I enjoy spending time with my wife, our two wonderful children and our feisty Miniature Schnauzer.

Respectful, knowledgable, and prepared
Mr. Dupree was very encouraging and patient throughout the entire experience. His ability to remain calm, thoroughness with preparing me for what to expect from opposing counsel, and being conscientious of my shift in demeanor, and asking for breaks when needed is what you want from an attorney. It was a challenging case, but because of Ron’s extensive knowledge of the laws and arguments affecting employment law and sexual harassment we ended up with a positive result and won the sexual harassment charge against my previous employer. I am so thankful I was guided to Ron. Though the opposing counsel tried to intimidate me Ron helped me have the confidence to stand up for myself, assured me that my voice matters, reminded me that what I experience counts and doesn’t deserve to be ignored or pushed aside. Thank you, Ron, so much for what you have done for me!

"Exalted & Annointed Representation from Houston's Best Employment & Labor, Discrimination Attorney!" Period.
If you are reading this review it is likely that you are experiencing a whirlwind of emotions because you have arrived at a crossroad that no professional ever imagines themselves in their perspective careers. First, breathe. Last year I was where you are now. I had several other consultations and to no avail, none of those were the right fit for me and what I was facing. I then prayed for divine intervention and looked for "Houston's Best Employment & Labor Defense Attorney." Hence, I connected to Mr. Ronald E. Dupree! From the beginning he was sound, unrelenting, profoundly accommodating with answering all of my concerns & questions. I discovered he was cogent and impressive with his strategies to appropriately address litigation against this entity. This was no small feat, because this employer is a known staple in our community. However, Mr. Dupree never capitulated or diminished in any of his efforts to provide for me the best outcome to an unwanted and unwarranted situation with myself and my former employer. I cannot express enough the gratitude and appreciation I have for him and his team of support. I was always kept apprised of any developments, nuances or abhorrent tactics of my employer's efforts to push back or depletions of a favorable resolutions; and there were several attempts on their part. Throughout all of that and the negotiations, I could not have been better prepared, represented and emotionally supported by Mr. Dupree. I am so happy that I did not allow a consultation fee stand in the way of retaining Houston's finest. Neither should you. Please do yourself a justice by seeking his assistance and representation for all that you are subject to at this juncture. No one wants this, but anyone in this situation, should most certainly want the legal representation of Mr. Dupree! I consider myself blessed, not lucky, that I was represented by him. I am confident that because of his diligence, adroitness and comprehensive prowess, we were VICTORIOUS. My former employer acquiesced and settled after their best efforts of subjugation. I employ you to seek the counsel of DUPREE LAWFIRM! My wish is for you to have an expedited and favorable outcome and in my humbled opinion, it begins with prayer and a call to Mr. Ronald E. Dupree. Thank you for allowing me to opine and encourage you to consult with him. Remember one day at a time and Dupree Law Firm when your reputation is on the line. Signed, More than Satiated Client

Highly Recommended Employment Law Attorney
I was referred to Mr. Dupree by a friend who worked as opposing counsel to Mr. Dupree. He came highly recommended to represent me for a retaliation case against a former employer. Mr. Dupree was very professional, transparent, and took the time to help me understand the process. I would certainly recommend Mr. Dupree for anyone needing counsel regarding employment law.

EEO claim
Mr. Dupree was extremely professional from the start. He laid out the possibilities for how to proceed during the consultation and after being hired kept me updated throughout the process. He answered all of my questions and the settlement that was reached was beyond satisfactory.

Mr. Ron Dupree - 06/01/2020
Ron Dupree represented me in a emplacement case. He and his staff were very professional, prompted & took the time to understand the situation. He & his staff, but mostly himself took the time to give updates by telephone & email communication. It was unfortunate that I needed his help, but I am very thankful he was on my side. I will utilize his services if needed & definitely will refer him to friends, family and colleagues.

Severance review
Ron was recommended by a friend. He was easy to talk to and very knowledgeable about employment law. He walked me through the details of a severance package and gave me a much greater insight to the meanings and the ramifications of each section. It was worth the fee, and I will recommend Ron to my friends.
