We are a Houston, Texas based law firm, providing Employee Relations Consulting and legal representation in the areas of Family and Social Security Disability Law. We handle social security entitlement, divorces, child support, adoption and child custody cases. Our motto is we deliver caring, competent, and consistent legal service to every client while guiding our clients through critically important, and often overwhelming, legal problems. We apply our experience, professionalism, and dedication to promote our client’s interest in every case. It is our ardent belief that competent and experienced legal representation should be available to everyone.
We accept cases from Galveston/Houston, Ft. Bend, and Brazoria counties. Our initial goal is to resolve legal problems with the least amount of time and financial expenses to our clients. In furtherance of this goal we thoroughly pursue alternative dispute resolutions and actively participate in mediations and negotiations to resolve matters as quickly as possible. However, in the event a client’s case must be litigated, we prepare a plan of representation which includes aggressive court representation.
As an extension of The Dorsey Law Firm’s belief that some legal matters can be prevented, the Principal Attorney, Veronica Dorsey, utilizes a management background to provide employers pre-litigation advice and employee relations consulting aimed at preventing or reducing liability. The Firm consults employers on a wide array matters. Call us today to schedule a consultation.
