Recovering attorneys' fees can no longer be an afterthought for trial lawyers and their clients. Today, the ability to recover attorneys' fees may be the deciding factor in whether or not to file a lawsuit and almost always plays a critical role in the decision to settle or try a case. In fact, it is no longer unusual for an attorneys' fees recovery to exceed actual damages.

Mindful of this change in the attorneys' fees landscape, attorneys' fees experts Trey Cox and Jason Dennis have authored How to Recover Attorneys' Fees in Texas -- a complete, step-by-step guide for practicing attorneys to help them win and defeat attorneys' fees claims at trial.
