Underwood Perkins’s Litigation section consists of trial and appellate attorneys who represent clients on a state, regional and national basis throughout the entire scope of the litigation process. Beginning with clients’ first notice of potential liability exposure, our attorneys guide them through the process of negotiating, mediating, arbitrating, litigating, appealing and settling numerous kinds of civil disputes. As a result, our attorneys have appeared before a variety of administrative agencies, state courts and federal courts in Texas and throughout other parts of the country in the capacity as both trial and appellate counsel.
The firm also recognizes that success in the courtroom depends on the attorney’s knowledge of the underlying subject matter at issue, as well as the attorney’s legal abilities. Consequently, the firm has assembled a team of attorneys who possess in-depth knowledge of the industries in which their clients are involved and the fields in which their clients litigate. Industries and fields in which the attorneys practice include:
- Employee injury plans and the defense of non-subscribing employers in cases arising out of on-the-job injuries,
- Commercial business litigation, including business entity disputes, collection litigation, banking litigation and real estate litigation,
- Employment matters, including Title VII, EEOC, ADA, FMLA, ADEA and FLSA disputes,
- Transportation liability,
- Medical malpractice and health care provider liability, and
- Premises liability.
At Underwood Perkins, our attorneys have the experience and knowledge to provide litigation services to the rapidly growing number of employers who have elected out of the Texas Workers’ Compensation system. These “Non-Subscribers” are assisted in the implementation and administration of employee injury plans and the ultimate defense of claims arising out of on-the-job injuries.
Many firms have attorneys with experience in the courtroom. Underwood Perkins goes a step beyond with its attorneys who have experience in the courtroom and in the very fields in which their clients’ operations are conducted. The firm’s litigation philosophy is simple. Know the Law. Know the Industry. Know Success.
