Criminal and Civil Litigation Attorneys Serving Houston

When entering the courtroom, you need a skilled legal advocate prepared to mount a compelling legal strategy. At Katine Nechman McLaurin LLP in Houston, Texas, we believe our courtroom resilience stems from our years of experience.

For more than 30 years, the trial attorneys at our law firm have secured substantial verdicts for clients from all backgrounds, including the GLBT community. One of our partners — attorney Mitchell Katine — was local counsel in the 2003 U.S. Supreme Court case of Lawrence v. Texas, which declared sodomy laws unconstitutional in the United States.

At Katine Nechman McLaurin, we invest substantial time into sizing up a case to determine the benefit of pursuing litigation over mediation, arbitration or a negotiated settlement. When appropriate, we consult financial experts to help us analyze the cost associated with pursuing a trial verdict in civil litigation for a variety of cases, involving:

  • LGBT family law — Our firm's Texas gay rights lawyers understand the stakes are often high when same-sex couples with substantial assets decide to separate ways. We are prepared to uncover any hidden assets, while seeking an equitable distribution of community property.
  • Real estate — The real estate attorneys at our firm defend residential and commercial clients in disputes over land use, zoning ordinances, eviction notices and co-ownership disputes. We also handle homeowners' association disputes involving deed restrictions, assessment collections and maintenance issues.
  • Estate planning — We seek to preserve the intention of an estate plan when a will contest and other disputes arise about the validity of the executors' actions.
  • Employment law — We offer a comprehensive approach with a background in representing both employers and employees in disputes involving discrimination allegations, employment contracts, severance agreements, immigration concerns and unemployment compensation.
