The Law Offices of Paul G. Vick opened in June 1995. The firm is dedicated to the representation of small businesses and individuals, primarily in the areas of litigation and organization. In addition, the firm actively practices in the areas of mediation and alternate dispute resolution.
Fees are generated by hourly billing rates, as well as flat mediation rates per party ranging from a half-day mediation to a full-day mediation. Our litigation cases are handled on an hourly and contingent fee basis. The contingent fee arrangement consists of attorney fees as a percent of the total amount of recovery on a case, either through settlement or jury verdict. Fees are not paid until a recovery is obtained on contingent fee cases.
We represent individuals and businesses in a variety of practice areas on both an hourly and contingent fee basis. The firm has and continues to represent those businesses and individuals where hourly billing is not feasible. Many small businesses and individuals simply can not absorb the cost of hourly rates in order to pursue valid claims against larger and more financially empowered entities.
Some of the most notable cases handled by our firm include the following:
-Obtained a successful jury verdict on behalf of a commercial real estate broker on a commission dispute involving a commercial office building. This verdict was upheld by the Texas Supreme Court.
-Obtained a favorable ruling from the Texas Supreme Court regarding Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Texas resulting in confidential settlement for fraudulent misrepresentation of health policy benefits.
-Obtained a $1.35 million jury verdict in Federal District Court against a municipality on behalf of a small business owner who contracted with the city and was subjected to abuse of process violations by the city. This case was briefed and argued twice before the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans, and resulted in a settlement of the jury verdict.
