Welcome to Capshaw & Associates

A civil trial law firm. Capshaw & Associates is comprised of trial lawyers who understand the complexities of presenting claims and defenses to a qualified jury. Capshaw & Associates attorneys have experience on both sides of the docket, representing both plaintiffs and defendants. The guiding principal of the firm is the right to a trial by jury in civil cases afforded by the 7th Amendment to the United States Constitution. While the firm has extensive experience in dispute resolution procedures such as mediation and arbitration, it is the civil jury trial experience that affords clients of Capshaw & Associates with a distinct advantage, as members of the firm have practiced for decades as civil trial lawyers in North Texas. That exposure to the local Judiciary and experience with the jury panels provides immense benefit to clients as both local counsel and trial counsel.
