Virtually everything we do in our daily lives creates some type of a relationship. Different relationships give rise to different duties by reason of the relationship or contract creating it. Employment, sales, purchases, banking, partnerships, corporations, securities, leases, real estate, licensing agreements, insurance, competitors, former employees, former employers, accountants, attorneys and investments are but a few examples of the relationships formed and terminated on a daily basis.
Persons and companies doing business together create relationships whether by express contract or by operation of law. In turn, those relationships each have duties. When the actions or omissions of one side or the other, intentionally or accidentally, damages or threatens to damage the other economically this gives rise to a potential legal claim. Depending upon the nature and immediacy of that harm the injured party may be entitled to monetary compensation, injunctive and/or other equitable relief.
Each of these relationships gives rise to the need for legal counsel on both sides of that relationship. The need is there to assist the person or company in their business dealings to prevent inadvertent violation of law, minimize the damage or injury to others when it is necessary to terminate that relationship, or prevent others from benefiting unfairly by their actions. Similarly, when a person or company has been sued or threatened with a lawsuit, legal counsel and/or representation is necessary to minimize harm to the company or person sued and, perhaps, seek affirmative relief back against the aggressive party.

Real Estate is one area of business that touches most people at some point during their lives; whether it be the purchase or sale of a home, the purchase of an office building, a corporate lease, an investment alone or through a partnership or perhaps with another person.

We have assisted others in dissolving partnerships involving real estate ownership, recovering our investors' monies from the offending partners.
Constructing a new home or adding a home addition can give rise to disputes between homeowners and the builders. We can help contractors and homeowners work through the maze of applicable laws of the TEXAS RESIDENTIAL CONSTRUCTION COMMISSION ACT (TRCCA) and the Residential Construction Liability Act (RCLA) and the Deceptive Trade Practices-Consumer Protection Act and their notices, deadlines and other requirements necessary to protect and limit damages or to maximize and assert legitimate claims.
