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.
Our attorneys have worked with Kirk, Dana, Shelby, and Thad at DP&S on many large cases this past decade. On some we contacted DP&S on short notice for dispositive motion hearings where we wanted to leave no doubt we already had excellent appellate counsel engaged to preserve error and appeal if needed. The attorneys at DP&S have always been there for us no matter the notice, location, or situation, to team up and give our clients the best advice and representation where an appeal could result. DP&S also recently assisted our firm in affirming the denial of a plea to the jurisdiction in a very tough premises case. DP&S has earned our trust and will earn yours as well. We highly recommend the attorneys of DP&S.

Our law firm has worked with Kirk, Leighton, Thad and their team for over 10 years. From jury charge conferences and throughout the appellate process, they have been there with their tenacious expertise. Their creative approach assisted our firm in securing a $20 million settlement in a complex construction defect and fraud matter, created positive case law concerning Chapter 74 reports, and we are currently working with them on other matters. Their work allows us to focus on the trial process and we always know they have our back!

I have worked with Kirk Pittard and Leighton Durham on several cases and can say with confidence that their big picture analysis, research, and briefing skills added value to the cases. I believe having able appellate counsel assisting with the legal issues that come up in a case is invaluable. Kirk and Leighton fit the bill.
~Charla G. Aldous, Aldous Walker
I have worked with Kirk and his firm for over 15 years, ever since he convinced the Amarillo Court of Appeals to reverse a summary judgment that had been granted against my client. I never hesitate to contact Durham, Pittard & Spalding any time I have a legal issue I want researched, analyzed and briefed to assist me in the representation of my clients. I will continue to use the firm and rely upon their expertise for cases at the trial level and on appeal in the future.

I personally, and others in my firm have used Durham, Pittard & Spalding for appeals and as appellate counsel during important trials for many years. Without a doubt they, are our go to appellate counsel. In each instance where I’ve retained the firm for appellate purposes, they have provided exemplary service. Their advice and guidance on appellate matters is invaluable, as is the message sent to the judge and opposing counsel when you arrive for trial with appellate counsel. I highly recommend Durham, Pittard & Spalding.
~Ray Hatcher, Sloan Firm, Longview
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.

Working with Kirk has been a wonderful partnership that we’ve utilized when needed. The work ethic, depth of their knowledge, and the value they bring to cases has been a real asset for us in those cases. They are stand-up lawyers and professionals that you want to be standing shoulder to shoulder with.
