Your best interest is our primary motivation. We excel at telling your story to judges and juries to obtain the best possible outcome. We employ strategy and innovation to achieve the results you seek.  We are laser-focused to solve your problem and achieve your best result.


Our Texas trial attorneys have built a reputation for tough representation, and we have a growing list of successful client outcomes to prove it. Opposing counsel do not want to see Deans Stepp Law on the other side of a dispute.


While we will always fiercely represent you in a trial, our first priority is to manage the litigation to minimize any disruption in your business or personal affairs.  We constantly seek and create opportunities to quickly resolve your dispute so you never see the courtroom. We provide guidance to help you save the energy, time, and expense of a lawsuit.


Today, many lawyers never set foot inside a courtroom. Some claim to be trial attorneys and never go to trial.  At Deans Stepp Law, we have extensive trial experience representing both plaintiffs and defendants and have obtained many winning jury verdicts and judgments.


We approach every client engagement as though we have skin in the game. When we are engaged we become invested.  Your results, budget, and time are always paramount and reflected in our strategic approach.


We understand that every case and client is unique and customize our approach accordingly. We give you the attention you deserve and the experience you expect.
