Learn more below about our firm’s main areas of practice, and give us a call at 409-246-3600 to let us know your needs and find out how we can help you.

Personal Injury

Jefferson County may be the litigation capital of Texas, but our Hardin County law firm goes head-to-head and toe-to-toe with Jefferson County lawyers all the time. We know how to start working up a personal injury case from the day of the accident, and when the timing is right, we are well-prepared to negotiate a full and fair settlement or take the case to court if necessary to get the best result. The Butler Law Firm has decades of experience handling the full range of personal injury cases, including auto and 18-wheeler crashes, defective product injuries, workplace and construction injuries, and logging accidents. Additionally, our team has extensive experience pursuing Jones Act claims for tugboat/barge accidents and other offshore injuries. Call The Butler Law Firm in Kountze for help with any Hardin County personal injury claim.

Family Law

Texas allows divorce on the no-fault ground of insupportability (irreconcilable differences) while still retaining several fault grounds such as adultery, abandonment or cruel and inhuman treatment. Even in a no-fault divorce, there are many issues to iron out, including child custody (conservatorship), child support, alimony/spousal maintenance, and the division of marital property. We provide strong and effective representation in your Hardin County divorce, making sure that you and your children are taken care of and that you are not taken advantage of. Are you considering growing your family through adoption as a stepparent, close relative or young couple? Our family law legal team would be delighted to guide you through the necessary legal hoops for a smooth, successful adoption.

Estate Planning & Probate

Planning for the future is vital to protecting your assets and affairs in the event you become incapacitated, while also providing for the distribution of your estate to future generations. We’ll take the time to understand your needs and desires and craft a valid and enforceable will that corresponds with your wishes. We also assist executors in completing the probate process efficiently and effectively, including resolving will disputes and contests alleging undue influence, lack of capacity or other issues.

Criminal Defense

We take care of our clients and are here for them when they need us. If you’ve been charged with a DUI or DWI, drug crime or any felony, misdemeanor or juvenile offense, we’ll protect and defend you in the Hardin County courts. You have a lot at stake when facing arrest and prosecution: your liberty, your livelihood, your standing in the community and your personal and professional relationships. Let us help you stay out of jail, keep your driver’s license, occupational license, hunting and fishing licenses, and get the best result when subjected to criminal charges.
