Criminal, Family, and Personal Injury Attorneys in Dallas, Texas

At Varghese Summersett, we pride ourselves on the depth and breadth of our legal expertise. Our attorneys are not just seasoned practitioners; many have significant experience as former prosecutors. This dual perspective is invaluable, as it provides us with unique insights into the criminal justice system, enabling us to anticipate prosecution tactics and build stronger defenses. In family law matters, our experience helps us navigate complex emotional and legal landscapes to secure outcomes that protect our clients’ and their families’ interests. For personal injury cases, our detailed understanding of Texas law ensures that we aggressively pursue the compensation our clients deserve.

At Home in Dallas

We are located in Bryan Tower in downtown Dallas. This puts us in close proximity to the George L. Allen Courts Building, which houses the family, civil, and criminal courts as well as the Earle Cabell Federal Courthouse. Our Dallas lawyers have spent years working through the Dallas court systems in a variety of ways as prosecutors, defense attorneys, appellate counsel, trial counsel, and family lawyers. Practicing in Dallas County is unlike practicing in almost any other county. To be successful, an attorney has to understand the court system and the people involved – from the judges and court clerks to the juries. Our Dallas lawyers are at home in Dallas, both in and outside of the courtroom.
