Within Texas and Louisiana, we maintain strong relationships and resources to provide essential local services and information valuable to the practice, even in remote and difficult venues.
Committed to Justice
Success for Cotten Schmidt, L.L.P.’s clients means more than just “winning.” We strive to understand our clients’ businesses and interests and provide clients with the information necessary to make both tactical and strategic decisions that are time-sensitive and cost-sensitive. We employ state-of-the-art legal technology systems to support our clients wherever our work takes us. We evaluate and counsel on preventative measures and, if possible, litigation avoidance, as we identify avenues for case resolution, where appropriate, that promote quick and fair resolution.

Accordingly, our firm’s achievements include negotiated voluntary non-suits, dismissals through pre-trial motion practice, and outright defense verdicts in cases that required trial.
