About

 

When you look for a partner in business, you look for trust and integrity first and foremost.  But when you’re looking for just the right partner, you need to look beyond trust. A creative spirit, a drive to succeed and a deep sense of responsibility are what it takes to build on the foundation of trust and form a perfect partnership. Fritz, Byrne, Head & Gilstrap builds value-driven, client-oriented partnerships with all of our clients, achieving the results required to overcome any challenge and reach any goal. We are good at what do. And we do it with an Austin state of mind – confident, relaxed and respectful. 

 
 

Philosophy

We believe in creating the kind of partnership that takes the pressure off you and lets you focus on what is most important in your life. And we aim to do it in a way that will deliver the results you need without the sticker shock that often comes with large law firms. 

history

The original partners of FBHG, formerly FBHF, founded the firm in 1989 in the belief they could provide expert counsel and results without the bureaucracy and infrastructure that drove pricing at the large firms with which they had been associated. We’ve grown with our city over all these years, but we’ve kept the same value-driven, client-oriented philosophy. 

 

As the Austin Meritas affiliate, we are part of a global network of law firms in over 250 cities. And we have been awarded an “AV” rating (the highest there is) by the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory.


 

The attorneys of Fritz, Byrne, Head & Gilstrap deliver the depth of expertise and services of a large firm with the personal attention and responsiveness you can only find in a small firm.
