Let Paris’ Best Wrongful Death Attorneys Protect Your Family’s Interests

As the recognized best wrongful death attorneys in Paris TX, we believe in processes and systems, yet tailored to the individual families we represent in each wrongful death claim.  Some of our processes of which we are proud include:

  • Immediately preserving all scene evidence.
  • Forcing at fault individuals, corporate Defendants and their insurers to preserve evidence in their possession or otherwise be subject to punitive court sanctions.
  • Developing additional evidence to maximize the value of the wrongful death claim.
  • We look for the best strategy to maximize the value of the case, including looking at all possible avenues of compensation.
  • We teach our clients what they can do — and what they shouldn’t do — to best protect the viability of their claim.
  • We leverage the power of technology to make the entire process smoother, more efficient and clearer.

As the consistently rated best wrongful death lawyers in Paris TX, we limit the number of cases we accept and pound for pound we have a larger than average team so that we always have the firepower to fully devote sufficient resources to the pursuit of full justice on behalf of the families we represent. We aim to hold every negligent party fully responsible for the harms they cause. This is just one of the many reasons we have earned many honors and awards over the past several years such as:

  • Texas Super Lawyer, Personal Injury Law – 2017-present (less than 5% of Texas attorneys receive this honor)
  • Best Law Firm, McKinney Magazine – 5 consecutive years
  • Best Personal Injury Lawyer, D Magazine – 2016-present
  • Rising Stars (Personal Injury Law), Texas Monthly/Thomson Reuters – 7-time recipient (less than 2.5% of Texas attorneys receive this honor)
  • Best Personal Injury Attorney, McKinney Courier-Gazette – 3 consecutive years
  • Best Attorney, McKinney/Allen Living Magazine – 2-time selection
  • McKinney Courier Gazette – Best Personal Injury Attorney 3 consecutive years
  • AV Rated (highest rating under Martindale-Hubbell)
  • Perfect 10.0 Avvo Rating
  • Perfect A+ Better Business Bureau Rating
  • Elite Lawyer 2019-Present
  • Texas Lawyer – 7th Largest Motor Vehicle Verdict in Texas

We are proud of the awards we have earned, but the most important thing to us are the several hundred former clients who have taken the time to share their experience with others and review their experience with our law firm.  We are honored to maintain a perfect 5.0 star review.

Under Texas law, the Paris Tx best wrongful death lawyers can seek compensation for damage elements including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Funeral costs
  • Lost wages of the decedent
  • Loss of inheritance for the heirs
  • Loss of advice, counsel, services, care maintenance and support
  • Mental anguish
  • Expenses for psychological treatment
  • Punitive/exemplary damages

Experience and firepower matter in wrongful death cases. There are so many law firms that are overmatched against well-funded insurance companies in wrongful death claims.  Most lack the resources to fund a major wrongful death case on their own as these cases can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to correctly pursue, especially when there is a vehicle defect claim or other product defect claim to be made.  The great majority of law firms carry large lines of credit from which they draw to fund these expensive wrongful death cases.  Once the case is resolved, the law firms then pass the huge bank interest charges onto their clients.   The best wrongful death law firm in Paris has no lines of credit because we do not need them.  We internally fund every single case we handle and never pass interest charges to our  clients.
