Serpe Jones, A Civil Litigation Firm

Serpe Jones is a civil litigation firm that handles complex litigation for a wide array of clients ranging from publicly traded corporations to small businesses. Regardless of the size of the client, our goal is the same -- victory -- whether victory comes in the form of a verdict at trial, obtaining dismissal through motions, or achieving a favorable out of court resolution. At Serpe Jones, victory is achieved by providing each client with an experienced analysis at the outset of each case, determining the client’s goals, and staffing each case with a team of talented attorneys who are driven to achieve those goals. Serpe Jones continues to develop and foster a number of longstanding client relationships due to the victories obtained through this process.

ABOUT US

Serpe Jones is a trial firm that provides big firm experience through a small firm mentality. Our firm was founded on a principle that our clients deserve expert representation without the bureaucracy and expense associated with a large firm. We believe that quality service requires constant communication with our clients. We also pride ourselves on providing novel approaches to reach the best results for our clients. In pursuing these principles, we carefully select each of our attorneys based not only on their expertise as litigators but also on their initiative and drive to zealously represent our clients.

We are located in Houston, Texas. Our firm represents clients primarily in Texas, New Mexico, Missouri, Louisiana, and Colorado, but we also provide representation throughout the United States. Given our diverse background and experience, we handle all manners of civil litigation ranging from health care litigation, complex commercial litigation, personal injury, and products liability litigation. Serpe Jones is a full-service litigation firm for several clients, which is a testament of trust earned through results.

Our Litigation Approach

Serpe Jones is a firm of trial lawyers. Regardless of the nature of the case, we prepare each case as if it will go to trial. Once we receive the case, we identify the issues and prepare a strategy for winning the case in the courtroom. An important part of this strategy is developing a theme to help the jury better understand the issues on trial. Once a theme is developed, the case is handled with a constant direction toward this theme. This strategy not only leads to success in the courtroom, but it also leads to favorable resolutions for our clients.
We believe it is vitally important for the client to actively participate in developing the strategy for each case. While our attorneys will become experts on the subject matter underlying each case, we recognize that the client possesses invaluable knowledge and expertise on the subject. As a result, we work hand in hand with our clients throughout the case, and we welcome and encourage client involvement. After all, the case belongs to the client.

Most importantly, we staff our cases with experienced litigators who are dedicated to winning each and every case. We do not believe in “loser” cases. Rather, we believe every case can be won with the right strategy and theme.
