At Richardson + Burgess LLP, we have one goal: zealously representing clients in the prosecution and defense of civil lawsuits and arbitrations.

We joined Jim Richardson’s 30 years and Karen Burgess’ 15 years of successful Texas trial practice. Jim Richardson and Karen Burgess have achieved top honors as litigators: They hold AV Preeminent® Peer Review ratings by Martindale-Hubbell. Additionally, they are Board Certified in Civil Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Richardson and Burgess know the courtroom and have the experience to try even the most complex cases.

We are also aggressive litigators. We are frequently pitted against other top lawyers from large firms across the state and nation. Our team leverages technology and one-lawyer/one-task efficiency for a “lean and mean” approach to litigation.

The firm is proud to represent some of Austin’s finest  from real estate developers to musicians, and from brick and mortar retail to high-tech industry and executives  as well as individuals and companies from around the nation and globe. Those relationships have grown through the years of teamwork with clients, creating strategies to efficiently achieve our clients’ goals. Yes, that includes incentive-based, hybrid, and contingency fee cases in addition to our very competitive hourly rates. Interminable, expensive litigation does not serve our business-minded clients, so we keep a dialogue on-going to identify alternative paths to resolve disputes.

Our attorneys are dedicated to continued learning and presenting on developments in the law, and hold leadership positions in both bar and community service organizations.

We’d like to hear from you, so please contact us.
