Who We Serve

Our Houston-based OSHA defense attorneys serve businesses throughout the state of Texas, including those who face inspections or citations following workplace accidents. Additionally, we work with compliance officers, safety and health professionals, human resource personnel, and others to ensure compliance with OSHA standards and an employer’s obligation for providing a safe and healthy work environment.

Comprehensive Counsel & Representation

Because we pool our collective knowledge and experience, our firm is able to provide comprehensive counsel and representation rarely found elsewhere. This includes not only defending clients against serious repercussions imposed by OSHA, but also insight-driven counsel to help employers develop safe workplaces.

  • Proactive Services – Minimizing exposure to serious violations, fines, and penalties demands preemptive measures. From compliance with industry training requirements, voluntary training guidelines, and catastrophe management and planning to industry- and workplace-specific strategies, we tailor safety programs and policies to our clients’ unique needs. Not only do proactive steps and individualized service ensure the health and safety of employees, they also prove invaluable in protecting the success and viability of a business, which can be threatened by critical safety violations.
  • Immediate Response – Because a timely response is critical following a workplace accident, our team prioritizes immediate service. By initiating investigations and interviews as quickly as possible, our legal team can ensure proper protocol is followed and that businesses are prepared for OSHA inspections.
  • Aggressive Defense – We aggressively defend clients against all levels of OSHA citations and provide representation for complex issues such as general duty clause violations, retaliation claims, and multiemployer policies. We move quickly to mitigate exposure to penalties and the chain of issues that can follow, including negligence claims. After defending clients, we can also assist in ensuring compliance and effective policies to avoid similar issues in the future.

  • "Thank you very much for your help, advise, and guidance...given the situation. You and your firm have been very helpful since day one. All my questions were answered. Not having gone through this, and not knowing what to expect, your help was given to me in ways I could understand clearly and accurately. I am very appreciative about that. My family and I are very pleased with the outcome. If I happen to come across anyone who needs someone to represent them in these rough family situations, I will definitely recommend you and your firm and send them your way."

    - Brittany M.
  • "I just wanted to take a moment to thank you and your firm for your work on my recent divorce. Your professionalism and thorough handling of my case was so appreciated and very refreshing. You did your homework better than I had and truly opened my eyes to things I would have missed without your attention to detail. We prepared for the worst, hoped for the best and quite frankly, ended up as close to the best as could have been achieved. Beyond the great job you did though and perhaps the most important aspect of my want to say thank you is how I feel now and how I felt in your office. This brutal thing of divorce is tough and quite frankly, something I never want to go through again but y'all softened the blow for me through your care, concern, friendship and support. I've dealt with your firm forever it seems and the personal touch and caring way of it continues in you, Trey and all who I dealt with. Again, thank you so very much for your work on my case but more than that, for caring about me."

    - James M.

My client was very happy with all your staff. We appreciate your hard work and understanding since for immigrants it’s not easy to understand the legal system, especially with the language barrier. YOU ARE AWESOME ATTORNEYS! THANK YOU!"
