Matters Resolved

While each property-and every lawsuit-is unique, and no particular results can be guaranteed, some representative matters handled include:

  • Obtained a judgment for a fifty percent (50%) value reduction on a Galleria office building. The Court established the property’s value at precisely the amount sought by the firm’s client, and awarded the firm judgment against the Harris County Appraisal District for all of the owner’s attorney’s fees in the lawsuit.


  • Obtained a judgment at trial for a one-third value reduction on a Houston office building, with an attorney’s fees award.


  • Negotiated a settlement establishing the value of Harris County land at less than two-thirds of the value set by HCAD, based on environmental regulations affecting the property.


  • After a tax agent was improperly refused a hearing before an appraisal review board, filed an Application for Mandamus through the Texas Court of Appeals; and obtained a hearing before the Appraisal Review Board, which in turn resulted in the value sought by the owner.
