Smith Nobles


Smith Nobles is a civil appellate firm focusing on legal issues before Texas and federal courts. Building on our leadership’s big-firm experience and training, we provide comprehensive, high-quality appellate and litigation-support services to trial lawyers and their clients under sensible compensation structures. With offices in Austin, Houston, and the Rio Grande Valley, our reach extends statewide.

We believe that success at any level of litigation starts with thorough research, clear and concise writing, and well-reasoned legal analysis. Advocates who rely primarily on the law have as big a role as advocates who present the case to the fact-finder. The most effective trial teams feature both kinds, each playing to their respective strengths for the client’s benefit.

Whether handling dispositive motions, mandamus proceedings, the jury charge, post-trial motions, or an appeal in state or federal court, our experience, our focus on the client’s objectives, and our creative approach to solving problems make a difference.
