I regularly associate Kirk Pittard and the firm of Durham, Pittard & Spalding at the beginning of my major lawsuits.  This puts the defense counsel on notice that our trial team is fully staffed to engage in a heavy motion practice, and it assures the court that we can successfully defend or appeal the court’s rulings that matter.  It also gives me the comfort of knowing that Kirk and his firm are ready to spring into action, without having to be brought up to speed.  The alternative fee arrangements that Durham, Pittard & Spalding offers makes it easy to associate them from the beginning of the lawsuit through trial.

Durham, Pittard & Spalding has done an excellent job in hanging onto a verdict in a significant case for our client.  Their experience and appellate skills are the answer to a trial lawyer’s motion practice, post-verdict, and appellate needs.  As we know in Texas, it is hard enough to get a good verdict and even harder to keep it from being taken away by the appeals process.  Durham, Pittard & Spalding helps to increase the odds of keeping those verdicts.

DP&S has consistently done exceptional work for our firm. On top of providing appellate briefing that always outperforms opposing counsel’s, DP&S has helped us to secure favorable arbitrability rulings, uphold discovery orders on mandamus review, and craft litigation strategy around thorny coverage issues. They’ve become a go-to for our firm on all cases that reach appeal or appear likely to do so. We highly recommend them for any case that merits intensive legal research or briefing.

Durham, Pittard, and Spalding are the ‘Go To’ team for strategic litigation support and appeals.

I often retain the attorneys at Durham, Pittard & Spalding for specific research and briefing projects and for co-counsel arrangements on complex personal injury cases.  They bring an insight to the case with an eye towards a potential appeal that ultimately adds value to the case by positioning the case for an appeal or by avoiding an appeal altogether.  I definitely would recommend them to other trial attorneys for litigation support at the trial level as well as for handling cases on appeal.
