At Salmon-Haas, we pride ourselves on getting to know all of our clients personally. When you work with us, you do not go through paralegals, secretaries or legal assistants. We work directly with all of our clients from the first meeting to the final resolution of the case. When you call us about your case, we answer the phone or call you back as soon as possible. We take the time to explain your case to you every step of the way. When you work with us, you are not a number or a file in a cabinet. We are a small, family-run firm, and we know all of our clients.

Lawyers Who Care
We care about our clients. We became lawyers to help people with their problems, not just to make money. Shannon Salmon-Haas was the president of the Christian Legal Society in law school and is a member of the Pro Bono College of the State Bar of Texas for her work with the poor.
Call us if you feel we can help you. We will talk to you on the phone about your case and will arrange a time to meet you. This first meeting and consultation is free. You can walk away and you will not have to pay anything. If you hire us, we will explain clearly how we will bill for your case. For most cases, there is simply a flat fee so there are no surprises. We will enter a payment plan with you to make sure our costs are affordable. We charge a fair price and work hard to earn every penny.
