Texas Production of Documents Attorney
Requests for production are a vital tool in the pretrial discovery process. Requests for production can involve requests for paper documents, documents in electronic form, such as e-mails, and other tangible documents. Requests for production can lead to the release of countless documents. The information contained in these documents can clarify issues in the litigation and enhance or diminish a party’s positions.
It is imperative that your lawyer understands the ins and outs of pretrial discovery. I am Austin business attorney John McDuff. I have more than 30 years of experience representing clients in complex business litigation. I have received the AV* rating under Martindale-Hubbell’s peer review system. When it comes to responding to requests for production or reviewing documents, I provide skilled, strategic representation.
One of the major issues when responding to requests for discovery is determining which documents are legally privileged, and therefore not subject to production. For instance, many documents that would be otherwise discoverable are not discoverable under the attorney-client privilege. The rules surrounding attorney-client privilege are very specific. I understand all of the applicable rules of discovery and will make certain that your opposition does not recover any documents that are legally privileged.
I Personally Handle All Aspects of Discovery
The trend in discovery is for lawyers to rely on inexperienced associate lawyers or contract lawyers to go through documents in discovery. This is not my approach. I will conduct most or all of discovery, relying on your assistance when necessary. This way, I will not miss any potentially vital documentation. I will also gain a complete understanding of the issues in a case.
Discovery is time-consuming, painstaking work. I have found, however, that my approach is the best way to find the information necessary to achieve a successful result in complex litigation.
