Who you hire as your lawyer may be the most important decision you make in an injury or wrongful death case. It can mean the difference between winning and losing your case.
How do you tell the difference between one law firm and another? How do you go about deciding which lawyer will be the best for your case?
One way to determine whether a law firm is the right fit for you is to look at what they have done for previous clients. By looking at the law firm's track record, you can quickly learn whether it has the experience, expertise, reputation, and resources to win your case.

What Our Clients Say About VB Attorneys
It's important to us to form strong bonds with the clients who hire us to represent them. We know our clients are going through difficult times, and we know that we are better able to represent them in their case when we form strong relationships with them.

Why Hiring a Board Certified Injury Lawyer is Important
Some say you should hire a Board Certified injury lawyer. Why? Fewer than two percent of all lawyers in Texas are Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law. According to the State Bar of Texas, Board Certification is "a mark of excellence and a distinguishing accomplishment." It means the lawyer has "demonstrated, and tested, special competence in that area of the law." This designation "sets [Board Certified attorneys] apart as being an attorney with the highest public commitment to excellence in their area of the law."
In addition to Board Certification, VB Attorneys holds the highest possible A+ rating by the Better Business Bureau.
Brian and Vuk are also both rated 10/10 by Avvo, an independent lawyer rating agency.
Brian has been selected as a Texas "Super Lawyer" Rising Star for five consecutive years and Vuk has been honored twice for having one of the largest verdicts in Texas in his practice area.
