- Ronald Hornberger -
I service a wide variety of clients in need of representation in bankruptcy and commercial litigation matters and in general business matters. My goal is to provide effective, efficient service to all of my clients. It is important to me that my clients feel that they have been given good counsel as well as good representation. The vast majority of my clientele comes from referrals from former clients and other lawyers across Texas and the nation.
An essential goal of any good attorney and counselor should be that he or she provide careful, measured counsel to the client as well as effective representation in the legal matter in question. Any litigation matter deserves the attorney's best efforts to analyze, not only for litigation and trial, but also for mediation and settlement, so as to provide the best decision making consultation with the client.
