About Us

Established in 1997, Killeen and Stern, PC is an AV rated Houston based civil litigation law firm dedicated to giving its clients personalized service customized to each client's individual needs in all federal, state and local courts in Texas, Louisiana and throughout the Gulf Coast region.

There's a difference between a litigation specialist and a trial attorney. At Killeen and Stern, that’s a distinction that we take very seriously. Approaching every case as if it were headed straight to trial means that our attorneys are jury conscious and verdict minded from day one - a fact that won't be lost on the opposing party. Simply knowing that you are willing to take the case all the way may be just the incentive to settle that they need.

At Killeen and Stern, our proven record of courtroom success and reputation as one of Houston's premier trial lawyer firms often make us the first choice for difficult or troubled cases. So just what makes us so good?

When it comes to defense, you won't find an attorney firm more committed to achieving the results you're after. We use the full extent of our expertise, resources, and talented staff to achieve the optimum outcome for your case. We treat every case- and every client- as an individual, and work hard to ensure that the court sees you the same way.

When we are pursuing, we prefer to work on a contingency basis. This means that we share not only the reward, but also the risk, with each one of our clients. We are, quite literally, on your team. Doesn't it make more sense to work with a legal team whose return is contingent upon a win for you? Simply put, it benefits us to work as hard as possible for you. And that's a very good thing for our clients.

Additionally, every attorney at our firm is dedicated to the success of our clients; a fact that we demonstrate with every courtroom win and profitable settlement.

Killeen and Stern’s commitment to excellence begins with the first phone call. And it doesn't end until our clients are satisfied. Because when you win, we win.
