Bernard E. Zwillenberg

General Law

I am a litigation and trial lawyer with experience in civil litigation, criminal defense, family law, business law, personal injury, insurance, and products liability. I have represented Fortune 500 companies all over the U.S. as well as small businesses and individuals in cases throughout Texas since 1991. My practice is now concentrated on business litigation, family/divorce law, and criminal defense.

I bring an unusual set of skills to my clients’ cases because there is often overlap between business, family/divorce and criminal cases. My diverse experience as a lawyer can be a great asset to my clients because I understand the impact their case may have on other aspects of their lives and business. Further, I am often called upon by other lawyers for advice when their case involves such overlapping issues.

My experience in the courtroom gives my clients the confidence that their attorney is capable of taking their case to trial if it cannot be resolved by negotiations, settlement or plea bargain. Furthermore, my clients can be assured that they are represented in front of judges, and juries effectively and in a professional manner.

Because of my nearly twenty-six years of experience, I am asked to handle various legal issues, including:
