General Civil Practice and Civil Litigation


It is no secret that proactive planning is the single most important element to reducing exposure to liability—regardless of whether the client is a public or private entity or individual.

For this reason, the attorneys at Escamilla & Poneck, LLP have been dedicated to assisting clients with legal issues related to the day-to-day operation of their business or governmental entities for nearly 25 years. Our firm has counseled and represented many local governments and others from across the state of Texas on civil matters such as:

  • Construction matters
  • State and federal regulations
  • Contract and tort disputes and litigation
  • Housing and real estate issues
  • Bond issuance and public finance issues
  • Fees and fines and delinquent tax collection
  • Employment law—including sexual harassment, wrongful termination and discrimination claims

Alternatives to Litigation

Our firm stands ready to fully assert and defend the rights of its clients in any area.

Before the civil matter goes to court, our attorneys advise our clients of the potential time and money savings in taking preventative measures, or if necessary, settling cases out of court rather than going to trial. Options we explore together include pre-litigation dispute resolution, binding and non-binding arbitration, and mediation.

However, whenever a legal matter must be resolved in court or before a regulatory agency in order to protect the best interests of our clients, you can feel confident knowing that our lawyers have the kind of skills and experience required to do so effectively.
