About Our Firm
Hornberger Fuller Garza & Cohen Incorporated offers a group of highly experienced lawyers with diverse backgrounds and experiences to meet the needs of our clients.

We invite you to browse our website to view in more detail the specific areas of practice and professional services we provide. We believe you will discover, whether your need is for a skilled attorney in any facet of a business, real estate or tax, trust and estate planning matter or whether you are looking for a highly qualified attorney to represent you in a civil litigation or arbitration matter, we have the quality and level of professional expertise you are seeking. Please contact any of the members of our law firm to discuss in more detail our substantial experience in the varied practice areas we offer.
Communication is important with respect to fees. Before we begin working with a new client, we thoroughly discuss with the client our fees and we both sign a written engagement letter that explains how fees and expenses will be incurred and paid.
Fees are generally based on the hours spent by the attorneys working on the matter billed at the attorneys’ billing rates. While we bill hourly for our work on many transaction matters and lawsuits, we also consider and discuss with our clients other fee arrangements. These may include fixed fees for certain transaction or planning matters (such as preparation of estate planning documents, corporate formation documents, etc.)
Sometimes, clients have suffered a loss and have a legitimate claim but do not have the funds to hire attorneys and pay for their work on an hourly basis. For litigation work, we often enter into alternative fee arrangements with these clients, which may include a contingent fee agreement. Under a contingent fee agreement, typically the client will pay for litigation out-of-pocket expenses, but our fees for legal services will be based upon a percentage of the client’s recovery, if one is obtained. We often enter into contingent fee agreements on a variety of business and personal disputes, including will and trust contests, oil and gas royalty or other disputes, breach of fiduciary duty disputes, shareholder, business and employment disputes, and other types of business litigation. Feel free to contact our litigation attorneys for more information.
