Our Mission Statement

“We defend our clients’ most valuable assets.”

Civil Litigation Experts Specializing in Real Estate Law On Behalf of Tenants and Landlords

We are a Civil Litigation Law Firm with over 13 years of experience in Texas courts. We focus on Real Estate Law with a concentration on Landlord/Tenant litigation. We deliver outstanding customer service, and our clients have come back over and over throughout the years for top-tier legal representation. 

Our firm supports individual landlords, apartment communities, and real estate investment firms. We deliver legal notices, file lawsuits, and we defend Landlords sued by Tenants, as well as homeowners facing HOA or Tax foreclosure.  

Very few attorneys know Landlord/Tenant Law the way we do. It’s not enough to be a real estate attorney if you have no experience in the Justice Courts and County Courts throughout the State of Texas. It’s not enough to be familiar with the Texas Property Code if you’ve never argued it in court and know which judges take the law one way and which courts take it a very different way. This experience is why having a Landlord Attorney in your corner really matters.  

We welcome you to read our 100+ reviews on Google. We have an amazing, supportive team of outstanding professionals with stellar moral values and work ethics. We serve best by defending our clients’ most valuable assets. We are well established Landlord Attorneys in the Greater Houston area, and over the years, our reach has broadened across the State of Texas.

Client Reviews

Mr. Garcia demonstrated profound knowledge and professionalism and a helpful and pleasant demeanor. I reached out to him for guidance regarding an issue with my tenant who violated the lease agreement and left the property in a deplorable state. Mr. Garcia provided me with insights that were hard to accept, but his high ethical standards dissuaded me from pursuing a lawsuit against the individuals involved. I would wholeheartedly recommend him and wouldn’t hesitate to engage his services if I ever require legal assistance.

Patricia Moseley

An absolute God-send for landlords. His office and staff are fair, generous, and wise. I couldn’t landlord without him.

Cindi Weber

Mr. Garcia, thank you for your timely help with a non paying renter. We have used another attorney in the past and would have to prod and prod before anything was sent to the renter. We appreciate the time and information we were given on the initial phone call, the personal follow up phone call to check on the progress, and the follow up letter sent as a summary. Kudos to you and your staff’s professionalism and timeliness.
