GENERAL PRACTICE AREAS
You do not pay an attorney to lose. Whereas, results can and may vary depending on many factors, you have a right to expect your attorney to be better prepared and to work harder than the opposing counsel. Attorneys, like all professionals are based on the results they obtain. Amongst many other positive results, Steven R. Dunn served his clients well in the following cases:
Dunn v. Street, 938 S.W.2d 33 (Tex. 1997) (clarified the standard for objecting to visiting judges)

An attorney's job is also to act as a counselor to his clients. Knowing when to advise certain courses of action taking into account all known circumstances and possible results is the hallmark of a competent, experienced attorney. That attorney's advice is relied upon by corporate leaders and individuals to help guide them in making sound legal decisions.
When matters of your health or when dealing with a deadly disease are involved, you need an attorney, a counselor, a trusted advisor who has lived through those trials and will keep your best interests at the forefront.
