A Forward Looking Firm
with a Legacy of Service

Our Approach

Our attorneys strive to balance dogged-thoroughness, practicality, and ingenuity to deliver exceptional legal services that our clients appreciate.

By building long-term relationships founded on clear and frank communications, we can efficiently anticipate clients’ needs, head off legal troubles at an early stage, and structure clients’ legal affairs and investments efficiently and effectively. 

We believe that excellent service comes down to clarity of purpose:

Our litigators are uncompromising advocates for our clients. Our transaction attorneys are practical-minded and diligent dealmakers who understand their job is to get good deals done while mitigating our client’s risks. Our taxation and trust-and-estate attorneys are ingenious planners who ethically advise clients how to structure their transactions and investments to minimize tax. 

Our Industry Experience

We represent clients throughout the diversified energy sector, software and technology, information technology, manufacturing, engineering, real estate developers, landowners, medical device and healthcare software companies, private equity investors, and more. With a century of service, we have extensive experience with a broad range of companies doing business in Texas.

Our Culture

The CJMH collegial environment not only makes it a great place to work, but it gives our clients the benefit of our collaborative attitudes. We strive to ensure that our clients get the benefit of working with the attorneys who are best suited to advise on particular matters. While we try to avoid over-lawyering, we work to ensure that our clients receive personalized service as well as expert counsel.

Our Clients

Our clients come from diverse industries and market segments, ranging from start-up ventures to middle market corporations, multinational corporate groups, as well as ultra high net worth investors and some of Houston’s most prominent family offices. But we aren’t ones to brag. Although we are proud of our work and admire our clients, it’s unlikely you will see us publish tombstones for deal closings or press releases about the work that we do. Our clients value discretion – and we value our clients.

The Professional's Professional

We regularly work hand-in-glove with other professionals, including lawyers at other law firms. We collaborate with a local network of accountants, wealth advisors, and attorneys who entrust us to provide highly-skilled strategies, ingenious problem solving, and impeccable service to their clients. Our tax lawyers are thought leaders who regularly provide tax continuing education to accountants and attorneys through our tax breakfasts and annual tax seminar.
