How To Win Your Real Estate Dispute

Normally, the most advantageous kind of win in the face of a legal dispute is to avoid litigation if possible. Negotiations, mediation or arbitration may keep your case out of court. But this may not be an option – for example, if an opponent has served you with a lawsuit or if a judgment has been made against you in court. Litigation may also be necessary when losses are extra large and negotiations do not yield the desired result. Responding to a complaint or appealing a verdict will sometimes be the next step.

Porter Law Firm is a source of reliable advocacy for real estate owners and investors, business owners and managers, and other individuals and entities in search of quality, trustworthy representation in litigation and appeals.

We have described our services below in general terms, but remember that every case is unique. If you know that litigation is imminent or if you believe you need to appeal a judgment, our trial lawyers are ready and willing to explain your options and prepare you to protect your interests in the most promising way.

Appellate Law

Our Houston attorneys at Porter Law Firm handle appellate claims for plaintiffs and defendants. This practice area allows our clients to maintain the relief they have obtained at trial, or to seek different outcomes when trial courts make mistakes during the initial litigation.

Furthermore, our scrutiny of appellate issues allows us to preserve error and present evidence during trials to position our litigation clients for a favorable outcome at the appellate level if an appeal becomes necessary.

Business And Commercial Litigation

At Porter Law Firm, our clients benefit from and appreciate our hands-on approach to managing their complex business litigation cases. Our reputation for thorough, personalized representation aside, we come to the table with an aggressive approach to outperform and defeat our clients’ opposition.

Commercial and business litigation cases are complex by nature. An attorney with extensive experience in this area can help you negotiate the process in your best interests. Our attorneys at Porter Law Firm have represented both plaintiffs and defendants, preparing each case with attention to detail and using our knowledge and insight to benefit our clients.

General Civil Litigation

At Porter Law Firm, we devote a significant portion of our practice to representing individuals who have been injured by others.
