It makes a difference when lawyers take the time to get to know their clients. Salmon & Haas is a full-service general practice law firm that represents clients in a variety of matters, from family disputes to immigration cases, consumer problems to criminal or civil litigation. We have almost 20 years of collective experience in local, state and federal courts in San Antonio and surrounding counties.
“A Small Firm That Cares”
We get to know each of our clients personally and take the time to learn the specific goals of each person who walks through our doors. We treat our clients with compassion, fairness, and respect, and we work hard to get the best results for each one of them. We take pride in our reputation for client satisfaction and excellence, and for the personal attention, ease of communication and responsiveness we provide to each and every one of our clients.
Although we are a full-service general litigation practice, we focus on several particular areas of the law, including:
