Who I Am
My Name is David Pittard. I have been a lawyer for 34 years and am licensed to practice in Texas, California, and New Mexico. Over the years, I have handled a broad range of legal matters on behalf of individuals and corporations. For the last 9 years I have concentrated on representing people who have been injured due to the negligence of others. I have successfully settled and tried hundreds of damage claims on behalf of injured persons. I believe every injured person, whether his or her injuries are catastrophic or not so serious, is entitled to vigorous representation.
After graduating near the top of my class in law school, I clerked for the Supreme Court of Texas and then worked for two years in the litigation and marketing law departments of a major corporation. I was eager to become a trial lawyer, however, and began private practice working with experienced lawyers who shared my satisfaction of helping injured people receive just compensation for their injuries.
I am now honored to be board certified in personal injury trial law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. I am battle-proven in fighting for justice and fair compensation for my clients against insurance companies that have no interest in being responsible, just, or fair. But lawsuits are won by facts and persuasion and my efforts, experience, and knowledge allow me to even the playing field.
I handle claims for people located anywhere when their legal matter is the subject of Texas Courts. For example, I have filed lawsuits in Amarillo, Houston, Waco and San Antonio. Most of the claims I have handled to conclusion arise in central Texas including Travis County, Williamson County, Hays County, Bell County, McLellan County, Bastrop County, Caldwell County, Llano County, and in municipalities in these counties: Austin, Cedar Park, Temple, Georgetown, Bastrop, Waco San Marcos and Lockhart.
What I Do
I practice general law and am board certified in personal injury trial law. I have resolved many legal disputes through amicable negotiations, but I know how to go to court when settlement will not work. My experience, education and training have made me flexible in my approach to novel legal problems as well as those that are more common.
Regardless of the area of law, every client is unique. The circumstances that require consultation or representation are often unique as well. I treat every client, opposing party, and opposing lawyer with respect. At the same time, I represent my clients zealously and demand they also be treated with the respect they deserve. I have represented many people in the following areas:
WHAT IS A NEGLIGENCE CLAIM AND HOW IS IT RESOLVED?
In Texas, everyone is held to the standard of acting as a reasonably prudent person would in the same or similar circumstances. If someone fails to behave according to this standard and, as a result, injures you, that person has been negligent. As the victim of this negligence, you are entitled to compensation for the damage you have suffered.
A negligence claim can arise in many different ways, some obvious and some not so obvious. Further, every claim will involve the expert interpretation of existing law as applicable to the facts of the situation. This can be complicated and is best left to the evaluation of a lawyer specializing in personal injury law.
Once a lawyer has determined your injuries have in fact been legally caused by the negligence of another, the next step is to determine the correct amount of fair and reasonable compensation allowed by law. Again, the personal injury law specialist is best equipped to make this very important decision.
Finally, the most important step is to actually obtain the proper amount of monetary damages you have suffered. I do this by making a legal claim for monetary damages against the negligent party on your behalf. Your claim may be resolved by negotiation or, if agreement cannot be reached, by trial in the civil courts.
CHOOSE ME AS YOUR PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY
More often than not, people choose an attorney because of recommendations by people they know. This is probably because they have no other basis for making a decision. The following are reasons you should consider me as your attorney:
