Trial Attorneys. Not Just Litigators.

Courtroom Experience Cutting Across Broad Areas of Law

SBPS attorneys consider themselves trial attorneys rather than litigators. They are experienced at trying cases to verdict before Texas juries, not just litigating cases to settlement. This capability empowers clients and affiliated trial teams to advocate from a position of strength. Whether the dispute involves allegations of patent infringement, trade secret theft, breach of contract or some important personal legal issue facing clients or their families, SBPS clients can be confident that our attorneys will be zealously, and ethically, standing up for them.
