It’s what you get from us.

It’s what you get from us.

What does that mean?

It means never wondering who’s working on your case or where it stands.
It means honest and attentive counsel focused on your real-world interests.
It means you get the talent you’d expect from a big firm, but in a boutique setting.
It means your opponents will take note, and know we mean business.

Frankly, it means a lot.

Meet the Team

Our attorneys are experts in every aspect of litigation as both plaintiff and defendant. Their experience is as diverse as Houston: Our attorneys have successfully represented international energy companies, large health-care and hospital systems, and pipeline operators — not to mention individuals and closely held companies. We also have counseled numerous Fortune 100 companies on pre- and post-litigation crisis management.

Our Expertise

You won’t find layers of lawyers and a bloated administrative staff at FM Law. We focus, instead, on efficiency and effectiveness. You’ll work closely with the lawyer who knows your case, and the applicable law, inside and out. Not all law firms agree with this approach, but—not surprisingly—almost all clients do.

By using the latest legal technologies and resources, we have developed ever-evolving practice efficiencies that benefit our clients financially. Whether we are representing an individual or a corporate client involved in multibillion-dollar litigation, we have proved—time and again—that we can provide first-class legal services at a fair and reasonable price.

Benefit from Our Unique Experience

We represent select individuals and small businesses on plaintiff matters, including catastrophic injury and death, fraud, and commercial disputes. Our experience in high-stakes corporate litigation has honed our tactical skills in creating maximum leverage for our plaintiff clients. We can apply the right degree of pressure—at just the right time—with the goal of driving your case forward to success. For example, we:

  • Represented a family-owned business against its insurance carrier for failing to abide by its contractual obligations.
  • Successfully pursued wrongful-death and survival claims on behalf of a family whose son was killed.
  • Achieved a favorable recovery for an individual and small-business owner who suffered major injuries due to the negligent conduct of another corporation’s employee.
  • Pursued slander-of-title claims and negotiated a favorable settlement for a private landowner.

Your Partner in Litigation

When you select FM Law, you’re choosing a true partner in your important lawsuit. We, too, are selective: We take only those cases that we believe in. Our litigation approach is custom tailored to achieve your objectives. You will work closely with your lead attorney—not shuffled off to a go-between. Your attorney will be available to you around the clock if needed.

You can count on us to diligently pursue your claim and offer you the highest level of service. Because you, your family, and your business deserve the best.
