Advantages of our services
Out-of-town firms are often not familiar with the local citizenry, judiciary and court procedures in East Texas. In addition, flying back and forth between their home state and Texas can become prohibitively expensive and time-consuming. We use our familiarity and knowledge of the area to provide top-quality services as local counsel for these firms. Our attorneys attend status conferences and hearings, conduct depositions and handle discovery disputes on behalf of these firms.
We also excel in two particular areas of pre-trial preparation that many firms take for granted when litigating cases in Texas — jury selection and jury questionnaires. Many judges in East Texas allow lawyers to conduct voir dire as well as the ability to send questionnaires along with summons for jury duty. Local attorneys are much more in touch with the local population, and are often familiar with certain biases within the community that can affect the outcome of a case. Attorney Otis Carroll has extensive experience performing these tasks for national firms. These questionnaires are critical to filtering out unwanted potential jurors. When conducting jury selection, he often relies on two or three fellow lawyers to circulate the list of jurors and take notes on their reactions to his questions.
A preeminent East Texas trial attorney, Mr. Carroll also offers his litigation skills to firms in the courtroom. If you decide to use his services at trial, he takes part in witness preparation and can conduct mock trials with a sample jury pool in order to gauge future success at trial. With more than 35 years of litigation experience at the highest levels of Texas state and appellate court, Mr. Carroll has the knowledge and ability to serve as lead counsel when necessary. You can rest assured that he will work tirelessly to help your client secure the best possible results.
