Because Your Victory Is Our Victory
Our founding lawyer, Attorney Clay Dugas, has been practicing personal injury law for more than 40 years. Our practice areas range from trucking accidents, where Attorney Dugas is known as “The 18-Wheeler Attorney,” auto accidents, and birth defects. Experience legal representation that exceeds expectations - that's what you can expect from us.
“The 18-Wheeler Attorney”
When it comes to truck accidents, we are the experts in Texas. We have a deep understanding of the unique challenges associated with these cases, from navigating complex regulations to uncovering evidence of negligence. Our team is well-versed in holding trucking companies accountable and fighting for the rights of accident victims.
For most people, the legal process is an intimidating unknown, the language of the law is complex and confusing, and choosing a lawyer can be an expensive shot in the dark. Having prosecuted over 250 jury trial cases, we are no strangers to the courtroom and are skilled in presenting compelling arguments that get results. Our relentless pursuit of justice has resulted in over 100 million-dollar outcomes for our clients.
For Our Clients, Things Are Different
At Dugas Law Firm, we have handled cases throughout the United States and now primarily represent families and individuals in the Beaumont area, throughout Southeast Texas, and in Southwestern Louisiana. We try to ease clients’ fears and confusion by explaining the legal process clearly in either English or Spanish, using simple, straightforward terms that are easy to understand.
We Don’t Get Paid Until You Do
We advance for all costs involved in preparing your personal injury case including expert fees, fees for private investigators, depositions, and travel. We also recognize that after an accident, injuries and grief can leave people overwhelmed and in difficult financial shape. We believe that having the right law firm to represent you shouldn’t have to cost a fortune. At our firm, it doesn’t.
Here, your first consultation is always free. Fees and costs are discussed up front and there is no “guessing” as to what your fee might be for our services. The fact of the matter is simple: We don’t get paid until you get paid. In other words, we work on a percentage of the recovery. If there is no recovery, you owe us nothing.
At our initial meeting, you will find out whether your situation requires legal assistance and about what our law firm can do to help. You are also going to meet attorneys and other staff members who genuinely care about you and your legal concerns because we truly want to help. If we cannot give your case the attention it deserves, we will be honest about that. We do not take cases unless we feel we can devote the resources necessary to attend to them properly.
We believe that taking good legal care of injured people means more than just exceeding their expectations while their case is ongoing. We believe that good legal care means that once you have been a client of this firm, you are always a client and are always welcome to call on us for advice or representation in other legal concerns.
