TEXAS BUSINESS, COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE & INSURANCE ATTORNEY
A client becomes a partner as we work together. I listen to my client and we find solutions. We establish the best course of action. Based on our discussion, I prepare a scope of engagement for client approval. The scope sets out the services expected to be provided and usually the fixed fee to be charged. When the client accepts the proposal, my client is engaged in the effort and informed as the challenges are met and goals achieved.
"THE WORK IS SERIOUS, BUT I DON'T TAKE MYSELF TOO SERIOUSLY. I RELY ON LONG-TERM CLIENT RELATIONSHIPS."

WHY EVERY PRACTICE & BUSINESS NEEDS AN ATTORNEY TO DRAFT THEIR CONTRACTS
Ideally, disability won’t affect your business. But you need protection in case it does. A great place to start — updating your contracts.
Partners dispute, employees retaliate, contractors fall through. Don’t wait until these inevitabilities strike; take preemptive action now.
Protect yourself and your business from the consequences of unexpected departures. Let’s make a plan together.
WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
Laird walked us through the procedure over a period of time and obtained a compensation package to repair the problem with my pool. This has brought about a great friendship with Laird.
Count on Laird to tell you the way it is... He never quits, keeps it all in perspective and has a sense of humor to get us through the pressure.
Laird... took a seemingly impossible situation and was able to turn it around... Not only was I held harmless in the original suit, I recovered damages from my insurance company for neglecting to cover me.
BUSINESS ENGLISH, NEVER LEGALESE
Many business people assume that their expertise in their field will be enough to run a company smoothly. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case.
There’s a lot you can learn about the legal aspects of business through individual research, but having an experienced attorney on your side protects you from legal ramifications you may otherwise overlook. With the right legal counsel creating your contracts, reviewing your leases, and addressing other such concerns, you can avoid disputes and spend more time focusing on your work.
Perhaps you’ve never considered working with an attorney; perhaps you’ve avoided doing so because you don’t want to listen to a lot of misleading legal jargon. Not to worry — I’m fluent in plain English.
As an intelligent businessperson, you know how to talk about your area of expertise and even the larger world of business. But I’ll never ask you to learn every aspect of business law — that’s what I’m here for. As we work together, I’ll be happy to educate you on the legal intricacies that affect your work world, but I won’t mislead you with a lot of unnecessary jargon.
