Houston Commercial and Civil Litigation Lawyers

Lawsuit Advocacy and Dispute Resolution

Whether you are the plaintiff or the defendant, litigation can adversely impact your business objectives and your bottom line, or even the continued viability of your company. With everything at stake, you need prudent legal advice and vigorous representation, especially if the lawsuit escalates to courtroom litigation.

The experienced trial attorneys of Wells & Cuellar, P.C., in Houston represent businesses across Texas in commercial and civil litigation. We can help you assess your options and make informed decisions consistent with your goals. We are comfortable trying cases to a judge or jury when it makes business sense to do so, but we are sensitive to non-litigation methods such as settlement, mediation or arbitration, and consider them to be strategic tools in our arsenal.
