At Scanes, Routh & James, you will find skilled advocates and sophisticated advisors who provide superior and innovative legal services to an array of clients throughout Texas and the nation.
SRJ does not take a "one-size fits all" approach to representing clients. Instead, we focus on select areas of legal practice in which our attorneys are recognized as among the finest in their fields. Doing so enables us to provide the highest level of legal representation in a highly responsive, cost-efficient, and personal manner.
As litigators, we combine thoughtful analysis and aggressive style to cases involving matters of business, real estate, eminent domain/condemnation, employment, insurance bad faith, probate, and personal injury or wrongful death.
Our real estate practice offers an unparalleled depth of expertise in matters of commercial real estate, development, zoning and land use, lending and banking, farm and ranch, oil and gas, and water. Our many loyal real estate, business, and banking clients have come to rely on the sharp intellect, good counsel, and practical sense of our experienced team of transactional lawyers. SRJ also has earned the respect of numerous opposing lawyers in big firms and niche boutiques throughout Texas and the nation.
Our talented lawyers have distinguished themselves academically and professionally. All of our attorneys graduated with honors or law review credentials from nationally recognized law schools, and two of our attorneys were the highest-ranking graduates in their respective law school commencement classes.
Given our experience and expertise, significant litigation cases involving real estate and business issues are a natural fit for our firm. Such cases enable SRJ to integrate our litigation assets with our real estate and business expertise, resulting in real synergy and positive results for our clients.
