Ensley Benitez Law, PC represents business and individuals all throughout Texas, in a broad range of both transactional and litigation matters. Our practice emphasizes representing construction contractors in complex litigation, often protecting them from allegations of construction defect, breach of contract, and all the other claims which are commonly brought in such matters. We have also built a significant amount of experience protecting clients from related matters. We can bring that experience to bear in defending you from claims made by other parties’ insurance companies, and ensuring that your own insurance company deals with you in good faith. We can defend you from claims made against you by your employees, sometimes in concert with government agencies, including OSHA, EEOC, DOL, TDI and the Texas Comptroller.
Sometimes you are served with a lawsuit, letter, or other document that specifies a Texas Law under which a complaint has been made against you. We can help you protect your interests on claims brought under a number of Texas statutes and their federal counterparts, including the Residential Construction Liability Act (RCLA); the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act (DTPA); the Texas Insurance Code; the Texas Business and Commerce Code (TBCC); the Texas Business Organizations Code (TBOC); the Civil Practice and Remedies Code (CPRC); and the Texas Property Code. We also assist our clients with commercial collections and insurance defense matters.
Our lawyers have extensive transactional experience in helping you gain the edge in new ventures by properly forming the appropriate business entity for your venture, and engaging in thorough and comprehensive contract reviews, and negotiating the best terms possible, so that you and your company are always in the best position to succeed. We help you protect your lien rights under the complex Texas scheme, by handling all aspects of filing your Mechanic’s Liens under the Texas Property Code, and ensuring that your liens under the Texas Constitution are properly noticed, such that your rights are preserved. We also assist you with developing best practice manuals and forms which provide you the best possible protection, while allowing your people to conserve time. Our lawyers are trained and experienced so that they can help you remain current with changes in the law, help you minimize your business’s exposure to risk and associated loss, and protect your business assets.
Not every case is the same, so we assess each matter separately, working with you to understand the facts and circumstances before we give you advice. Many firms pledge to fight every case to the death, even before they meet you or know anything about your case. Sometimes that just means that your case dies on a very expensive hill that no one needed to take. Our attorneys are skilled negotiators and trial-tested litigators, who have achieved exceptional outcomes for our clients by listening to their needs, understanding what you want out of your legal representation, and the resources you can commit to a particular matter, and only then giving you the best advice we can give based on all available facts, and a comprehensive understanding of the problem you want us to solve.
