About Jose

Learn Jose’s areas of practice.


I take an aggressive position with each individual case we decide to file suit on.  Upon case intake and we decide that we are accepting a case, we file suit immediately.  This is done for many reasons.  For example, in an 18 wheeler collision case, evidence that can be crucial to the case can disappear really quick.  In a recent case, we filed suit with a restraining order to ensure the 18 wheeler semi truck was not moved allowing our experts to get all data, such as the data on the “black box.”  This data provides much insight that was essential to the case.

Second, why do we sue immediately?  Well first, the litigation process takes time.  I feel the faster the case is filed and a trial date is set, the quicker the case is to resolve.  As a firm, we make it a goal to resolve your case in 9 to 12 months from initial signing and intake of the case.  Of course there are a few exceptions to this, however, we do really well getting cases resolved within this prescribed time.

Third, why do we sue immediately?  If the case is unable to resolve through negotiations, instead of waiting for all discovery to be done, which is usually the first 120 days, we have already done this and are prepared to take the next steps to move the case.  Usually this involves depositions of witnesses.  Can be anyone from the Corporate Representative speaking on the company’s policies and procedures, to the CEO of a company describing the chain of command.  Of course, the individual that caused the harm as well.

Bottom line there is no reason to let time go without something being accomplished.  Even if it’s just getting the suit filed and document discovery process taking place is better than having to put the case on hold because no action was taken.

If you would like to speak to me regarding a case or if you or a love one has been injured, please feel free to email me.

Professional, Confident and Reliable
Excellent experience! Mr Lopez graciously met with me in my home after being hospitalized following a motorcycle accident. From our very first introduction his professionalism exceeded my expectations. He was confident in his ability to be successful and fully open and honest in communication throughout the duration of the case. I felt like I could trust him which was so important to me since my knowledge of law and personal injury was so limited. He followed through on everything we discussed. I felt like I was in good hands and received the best possible service. I hope to not have any further personal injury issues in my future but would without a doubt recommend him to anyone who might be in need.

Extremely Effective and Knowledgeable
Joe is more than a lawyer, he's a compassionate lawyer. The insurance company denied liability for my accident. I was released by another attorney and hired Joe. He fought the insurance company and sued on my behalf. After filing suit, Joe revealed that the defendant had contradicting stories about how the accident occurred. After this revelation, Joe got me more than I ever expected for my accident.

Jose is the best lawyer in Austin hands down. He's easy to work with and he gets results. He's very well liked by his peers and in the Austin community. I recommend Jose to everyone who asks me if they need a great lawyer.
