The Local, Local Rules Advantage

A Focused Texas Trial Law Firm

Local and national clients alike appreciate the keen understanding that Siebman, Berg, Phillips & Smith, LLP, provedes regarding local legal customs, court procedures and judicial personnel.

SBPS represents local businesses and individuals, as well as companies headquartered outside of Texas. If your organization is based elsewhere in the U.S. or internationally and you have a legal matter in Eastern or Northern Texas, then a local Texas law firm can provide significant practical insights.

Siebman, Burg, Phillips & Smith, LLP, has been operating in the Northern and Eastern regions of Texas for more than 25 years. A commitment to knowing the community and building strong ties is a vital part of our culture and mission. Our lawyers fundamentally understand the region and the people who live here.

We believe that one of the most important services we offer is ongoing familiarity with the local rules of procedure and cultural expectations in every town, city and county in the region and throughout the state. Attorney Clyde Siebman, Attorney Michael Smith and Attorney Stephanie Barnes have each served on the Local Rules Advisory Committee for the Eastern District of Texas. Mr. Siebman and Mr. Smith have served on the Board of Directors for the State Bar of Texas, representing Northeast Texas. Mr. Siebman founded the Eastern District of Texas Bar Association and served as its first president. Mr. Smith and Attorney Larry Phillips also have served as president of the Eastern District Bar. Together, we have built a storehouse of insight and credibility that SBPS is proud to put to work for our clients.

The "Local, Local Rules" Advantage

SBPS attorneys have forged their extensive local connections with dedication, time and effort. We pride ourselves on our knowledge of the "local, local rules."

The "local, local rules" cannot be taught in law school or in a seminar. These are the customs and practices of particular courts that are inherent, historical and always evolving. They can be learned only through longevity and experience practicing in a particular area.

Knowledge of these local practices, ("local, local rules"), extensive local courtroom experience and attention to local customs often ease the course of litigation. By actively cultivating and incorporating this knowledge into their practice and conduct, our lawyers have developed a reputation for effectiveness and trustworthiness in the local and regional legal community of Texas.

Commitment to the Community

SBPS firmly believes in being an active part of the communities we serve. Our partners' families include Texas pioneer families and our attorneys regularly serve on local, regional and state government councils, boards and commissions. These relationships within the communities SBPS serves establish trust, as well as demonstrate our attorneys' personal understanding of the area and strong roots throughout the region.
