Representing Governmental Entities In The Courtroom

The attorneys of Denton Navarro Rodriguez Bernal Santee & Zech, P.C., provide vigorous defense of lawsuits against public and quasi-public government entities as well as individuals representing those agencies. We represent city commissions, city councils, county commissions, housing authorities and other governmental bodies in both state and federal court.

Our lawyers provide a value-oriented approach to civil litigation that capitalizes on our knowledge of the legal system and a relationship of respect with most plaintiff attorneys. We treat every matter as unique and tailor a creative solution to the exact circumstances of each case.

Proactive Legal Counsel

At Denton Navarro Rodriguez Bernal Santee & Zech, P.C., we are not merely attorneys; we are also counselors at law. This means that we take proactive measures to help clients avoid future problems and conflicts. When a municipality retains our firm in a harassment suit, for instance, we not only handle the current lawsuit but we also educate the client on how to understand the situation’s subtext and meet any similar challenges in a more effective manner.
