As trial lawyers, we love to litigate. The same cannot be said for all of our clients. For most, litigation avoidance is a priority. So the first thing we do after we are engaged is to pick up the phone. We talk to the attorney that issued the Civil Investigative Demand (“CID”), Subpoena, or Notice of Hearing/Violation. We begin a dialogue based upon common experience and trust, and start to manage the process. We don’t claim to have a magic wand we can wave that makes government attorneys go away, but we do have experience working with the Texas Attorney General’s Office and many Texas State Agencies in an effort to resolve disputes prior to their becoming public, prior to any adverse regulatory findings, and prior to any litigation. Contact Cobb & Counsel attorneys before the government investigation morphs into an enforcement action.
