If you're looking for a lawyer to serve as local counsel in Dallas/Fort Worth and the surrounding areas, we'd like to help. Below, we'll tell you a little bit about our experience as local counsel and give you a better idea of what we can offer you if you decide to ask us for assistance or refer a case.

What Makes Our Firm An Effective Partner?

The primary attribute that makes Grossman Law Offices an effective partner for you as local counsel is our tremendous experience litigating cases for over 25 years. We've achieved numerous multi-million dollar judgments and settlements, our attorneys have been named to the Texas Super Lawyers list for multiple years, and we've been recognized as one of the 10 best firms in the country for client satisfaction by the American Trial Lawyers Association.

Who is this for?

If you've signed up a motor vehicle accident (including a crash involving products liability), a commercial vehicle accident, dram shop, or premises liability case that occurred in North Texas, but you aren't physically located in the area, you'd be an ideal candidate for our local counsel services.

How much do we charge for local counsel assistance?

You may be wondering how much our help will cost. Typically, we keep a portion of the attorneys' fees for any case in which we help as local counsel, but the exact amount varies based on the level of our involvement, from simply handling logistical responsibilities that require a Texas presence to a full referral. Whatever kind of help you may need, rest assured that we're flexible with regard to compensation.

What are the responsibilities of a local counsel?

Without getting too deep into the weeds, we recognize that not everyone has the same expectations when they seek the help of local counsel on a case. Some may just want a partner to keep them out of trouble in an unfamiliar legal environment, while others may prefer a straight referral in which the local firm takes over a case entirely. We're fine with either. To learn more about referrals, see this page.

However, the traditional role of local counsel would involve us helping you become admitted pro hac. Further, we'll attend all hearings, secure expert witnesses, do any local site inspections required, corral witnesses, make our facilities available for depositions, attend and conduct them ourselves if desired, and perform any other duties requiring a local presence.

Why Choose Grossman Law Offices As Local Counsel?

In the North Texas area, our firm is highly regarded for our prowess as litigators. We're not a high-volume operation that takes on as many easy cases as we can so we can settle them without much effort. Instead, we litigate select cases, and throw all of our considerable resources behind them. We know the insurance adjusters, medical practitioners, judges, juries, local court staff, and, most importantly, the best places to eat in the area, so we can show you a good time when you come to town on the case. But in all seriousness, our experience and reputation will prove invaluable to you as we assist in litigating the case.

Above all, the most important characteristic making Grossman Law Offices your ideal partner is our ability to move your case quickly and effectively, providing you with regular updates on its status. We have been in your shoes many times before when we've engaged local counsel in unfamiliar venues, and we know how taxing it can be when they don't measure up to expectations. Whatever your needs may be, we won't let you down. To find out how we can help you get your case over the finish line, please give us a call at 855-326-0000.
