With any legal dispute, a commercial business or company may face, the security and financial well-being of your business is a priority. Hiring an experienced commercial litigator can help maintain your business’ bottom line. A skilled and knowledgeable business and commercial litigation lawyer can truly help mitigate the time and cost of a lawsuit. Entering into a contract without an attorney analyzing it first on your behalf may end up costing you more than if you’d initially engaged one to anticipate the problems you now must pay even more to get through.

If your business is facing commercial litigation, our experienced trial attorneys will provide ethical legal representation focused on fighting for the results you seek. Because every company and case is different, we tailor our approach for your specific needs. We always seek cost- and time-effective solutions without compromising your high-quality representation.

Let us handle your day-to-day legal needs such as sending demand letters; handling breach of contract & distressed loans, representing you in non-consumer disputes; and or providing you the benefits our clients have already experienced:


Obtained summary judgment for banking client against borrowers on past-due commercial note and garnished funds for payment. Prevailed on borrower’s motion to dismiss garnishment and subsequent unsuccessful mandamus attempts in Dallas Court of Appeals and Texas Supreme Court.

Successfully represented client in action against borrower and commercial guarantors for default of more than $15 million, negotiating forbearance, and ultimately obtaining payment of obligation.

Represented client in action against borrower and commercial guarantors for default of more than $6 million, negotiating multiple forbearances resulting in favorable payments to client before bankruptcy filing.

Gregory Deans and Katherine Stepp formed Deans Stepp Law, a Dallas-based law firm, to focus on litigating complex business and tort cases in Texas and nationwide.


You can trust our attorneys to fiercely advocate on your behalf whether inside or outside of the courtroom. We are accomplished and innovative negotiators. We thrive on persuasively presenting your case to a judge and jury but understand the expense and risk factors. Sometimes your case may be better resolved pre-trial. We listen, evaluate and guide you to the decision that is right for you, in your situation, for your case. Your fight is our fight.


Our comprehensive consulting services guide you toward safe legal ground as you navigate your business horizon. From implementing protocols based on best practices, to keeping protected and current with all of your legal documentation — whether simple contracts or complex structures — we have you covered. Taking advantage of proactive legal consulting can help you avoid expensive and time-consuming lawsuits. Mitigate before you litigate.


When a trial is the only or best option, you want the confidence of knowing you have experienced litigators on your side. That’s where our proven trial experience benefits you the most. Having experience on both sides of the bar, we intuitively view your case from all perspectives and present your case in its most compelling light,  transforming perceived weakness into strengths.  We focus on winning and getting the best outcome for you.
