        "I highly recommend attorney Fred Willumsen. He is professional, thorough, forthright, and kind. He communicated well throughout the process, took the time to answer any question I had, told me just how things were, whether good news or bad. He advised well on decisions I needed to make, and his support team did a great job in helping to navigate and resolved my case with the best results possible. Thanks again, Fred!"

        I worked with Donal McRoberts and I can say without hesitation that he is one of the most caring and hardworking people I know. He helped me through the absolute worst time in my life. Not only with my case but he made sure I was getting the medical help I needed too. I could never thank him enough for all he did. He protected me the whole time, never letting myself or anyone else put me in a position that could hurt me (mentally). If you are looking for someone to be on your side whether it is be a quick case or a long haul Donal is who you need hands down.

        A dog I was petting bit me; do I have a claim?


        I get this question a lot. It often happens when someone is at a family member’s house, petting the family dog. Everything seems to be fine, but then something happens. The dog snaps. What do you do? You have rights in Texas to pursue damages for medical bills, pain, and suffering. One thing people don’t realize about getting bit is the anxiety and fear it can cause. It can cause nightmares. A lot of times that fear and anxiety may not develop until a few days or weeks after the situation because you’re dealing with puncture wounds and cuts and scars.

        Those mental wounds can last for a while. They can be difficult to treat, and they can be difficult to get resolved. That’s why it’s important to find an attorney that understands what damages you’re entitled to and what those damages mean to your daily life and your personal life. The puncture wounds on your body will heal within days or weeks. Those will be resolved, but when you close your eyes at night to go to sleep, is that image of the dog biting you replaying in your mind months and months afterward? That’s why it’s important to get a lawyer who understands the nature of a dog bite, the mental and emotional damages, and the types of injuries that occur.

        A lot of our dog bite clients have been diagnosed with PTSD, or post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, because of the ongoing issues with their mind. They can’t get away from it. That’s why it’s really important to have an attorney on your side who understands that, who knows how to deal with that and can help you get through that process, because it’s not easy. We’re trial attorneys, and we want to make sure that we have the evidence collected from the beginning. We want to make sure that we have what we need for your claim in case we have to go in front of a judge and jury.
