Fight for You Like Family

Whether your case can be settled outside of court or needs to go all the way to trial, trust that we’ll be there every step of the way. Your fight is our fight, and we’re not the kind to back down.

Dedicated to our community

Volunteering at Texas High Schools

Each year, our founding attorney, Dennis, volunteers with lawyering programs at Texas high schools. Through his volunteering, he has judged mock trial competitions, worked with students to improve their debate skills, and strengthened these programs as a whole.

Speaking at Project Engage

Project Engage is a local program that works to give a second chance to teenagers in trouble with the law. When Dennis attends the program’s monthly meetings, he uses his insight in law and in life to speak to the youth about changing their paths for the better.

Mentoring Fellow & Future Attorneys

To ensure that the criminally accused are getting the best possible representation in Texas, Dennis volunteers with the Capital Area Private Defender Service (CAPDS). In addition, he invites 2-3 interns to work at the firm every summer in order to learn from a seasoned legal professional.

Feel like the underdog?

Let us step in to even the odds.

We Don’t Back Down from a Challenge

Sizing up your legal opponent can be scary, especially when you feel like you’re single-handedly taking on an insurance company or the state of Texas. But the truth of the matter is that you’re not alone. You have the right to legal representation — and we want you to use it wisely.

Experienced at Taking on the “Big Dogs”

Since its inception, The Law Office of Dennis Hunsberger, PLLC has successfully represented clients against legal opponents who our clients thought were unbeatable. For instance, we have sued Walmart, we have recovered financial compensation from large insurance companies who initially refused to pay for our clients’ injuries, and we regularly go up against the state of Texas on behalf of our criminal defense clients.

Whether you’re trying to reach an agreement with an ex-spouse, struggling to get a fair payout from an insurance company, or overwhelmed at the thought of defending yourself against a criminal charge, know that we aren’t afraid to fight aggressively on your behalf.

Always Ready for Trial

As people looking out for your best interests, we will do everything we can to resolve your case without a need for trial. As experienced litigators, though, we will be more than ready to represent you in the courtroom if that’s what it takes. With more than 65 jury trials under our belt already, we have the knowledge, tools, and experience to make your voice heard in the courtroom.
