What We Do
We also defend businesses faced with serious claims for personal injury and/or property damage. Businesses involved in high-risk operations turn to our experienced and qualified attorneys for sound counsel and effective representation.
We have also successfully represented policyholders and insurers in first-party claims. When insurance carriers are alleged to have violate the Texas Business and Commerce Code, the Texas Insurance Code or otherwise act in bad faith, the firm tirelessly pursues the rights and interests of carriers and policyholders under insurance contracts, including property insurance, liability insurance and builder’s risk insurance. Whether your case involves a first-party claim, a third-party claim or a self-insured claim, our attorneys can help.
If you need counsel and guidance regarding trusts, powers of attorney or if you need representation in litigation regarding these matters, Fahl & Donaldson, PLLC, is the firm to choose.
