Recently a very important client of mine needed legal representation in Texas. I interviewed quite a number of very good lawyers and settled on Andrew Pearce and Whitney Brieck with BoyarMiller in Houston. I needed an attorney to jump in immediately on behalf of my client as the matter was highly time sensitive. They wasted no time taking control of the litigation matter and saw it to a very successful conclusion. My client could not have been happier with me for finding BoyarMiller and recommending them. They made me look great! The quality of their work is absolutely of the highest order. Moreover, they’re great communicators. Calls and emails are answered or returned very promptly. I found Andrew and Whitney to be extremely tenacious yet professional in every way; as well as experienced, knowledgeable, and courteous at all times. They delivered outstanding results in a timely manner at a very fair price. I can’t recommend them more highly.
I look for outside counsel who are not only skilled trial attorneys and effective mediators, but also have business savvy and instill a sense of trust. I have worked with BoyarMiller for over a year and they check all the boxes. As a manufacturing company with distribution around the world, we frequently face complex disputes and claims that potentially have significant impact to the company. Chris Hanslik and his excellent colleague, Andrew Pearce, have taken the time to fully understand our business as well as the industry in which we compete. I have found them to be nimble and able to devote the resources needed to get the job done in a timely fashion. They have been able to distill complex litigation to the essential issues and provided clarity of thought in their analysis of the merits of the cases and their potential impact on the company. It is this combination of trial skills and business acumen that separates them from other firms. I highly recommend the team at BoyarMiller.
I was referred to Chris Hanslik by a friend of mine, who was a partner at one of the larger law firms in Houston. My friend held him in high esteem and after working with Chris for a number of months, I understood why. Chris is one of those rare individuals who, though very detail-oriented, doesn’t lose sight of the forest for the trees. My case was a very difficult case. Chris was quickly able to dissect it and present it in a way that anyone could easily understand. To do this took thoroughness, insightfulness and finesse, and Chris demonstrated all of the above. During the process of the case, I found Chris to be a very bright and capable attorney, who exercised excellent judgment and never lost sight of reality. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
