Collective Bargaining on Behalf of Texas Cities
The lawyers at Denton Navarro Rocha Bernal Hyde & Zech, P.C., handle negotiations between several client cities and their police and fire unions with a proactive philosophy. Our Texas law firm prepares city management to enter negotiations by closely examining the costs of the proposed contracts and advising the city how to effectively consider the contract issues.

We educate cities to understand how the employees think and to discover what issues are going to be most important to them.
