Our Work

Winning a lawsuit starts with picking the right attorneys
to handle your case.

Kaeske Law Firm handles significant business and personal injury lawsuits. If you have a potential lawsuit with serious injuries or damages, you need a trial lawyer who will take your case all the way to trial, if necessary. You do not want a lawyer who is just a discovery and settlement lawyer.  A significant case must have an experienced, successful trial lawyer who isn’t afraid to go to the courthouse. Mike Kaeske works with a team of lawyers and a staff of professionals who prepare a case, always with a perspective of how a jury will see it unfold in the courtroom.

A recognized lead trial attorney is critical.

Early in his career, Mike Kaeske left a large Dallas firm to set up his own law firm where he could be lead trial attorney on his own cases. In 2002, D Magazine listed Mike Kaeske second out of the top 119 “Best Lawyers Under 40 in Dallas” (it listed him again in 2004). He continues to be recognized by Texas Super Lawyers (a Thomson Reuters service)(recognized in 2003, 2004 & 2011). In 2011, he tried a large commercial case to verdict that was recognized as the “#1 Contract Case Verdict in Texas” and the “#8 Top Texas Verdict of 2011” by Texas Lawyer (an Integrated Media Company).  Another significant matter he handled was a serious-injury trucking case, which he settled at the courthouse steps. If you have a significant personal injury or commercial case, you want a trial lawyer who has a reputation for taking the case down to the courthouse.

A firm’s experience with significant, individual cases is important.

Mike Kaeske focuses on preparing significant individual cases for trial. Because the firm is a litigation firm, not a settlement firm, we work best on one case at a time. Every case we handle is important to our firm.

Mike Kaeske formed his own firm in 1999. The firm developed a reputation for handling mesothelioma cases across the country, but the firm also handles general negligence cases, benzene, trucking, automotive, wrongful death and pharmaceutical cases, as well as personal injury cases with significant injuries and a few select business litigation cases. We have had a concentration on occupational exposures to product chemicals, such as asbestos and benzene, but we will consider any significant personal injury or commercial litigation case.

Case Selection is critical at our firm.

Our firm is very picky about the cases we accept. We invest in each case so we have to believe it’s the right case for our firm and we can take it to a jury.  We are also a small boutique law firm and we intend to stay that way, so we can only handle a limited number of cases.

 A contingency fee means we shoulder the risk and share the reward with you.

The firm handles cases on contingency. Most people who are unexpectedly involved in an accident or who get seriously injured simply cannot afford the cost of hiring attorneys on an hourly basis and paying the case expenses for litigation. The contingency fee arrangement allows the little guy to go against the resources of big business or corporate America.

Under a contingency fee agreement, the firm pays all the case expenses upfront. The firm also invests their time and resources but if we don’t get you money, you don’t owe us anything.

Because we work on a contingency, we have our skin in the game too. If you don’t recover, we don’t either. On the other hand, the more we recover for you, the more we earn too. The contingency fee arrangement has worked successfully for personal injury cases as it allows people — who otherwise would not have the money to pay the high cost of litigation – to have the best trial lawyers in the country on their side of the courtroom.

No lawyer can give you any guarantees.

If you have a great case, every lawyer will tell you he or she can do the best job and get you the best result. But, facts change and so does the law and, as much as we wish we did, we don’t have a crystal ball for the future. We do our best to analyze your case and give you a fair assessment, but no one can guarantee an outcome. But if we represent you, we will be available to answer your questions and keep you informed of significant matters that change the potential outcome of your case.

 Your case is important to you and to us.

There is never any fee to talk to us about your potential lawsuit, so feel free to call or email us. We will take your call seriously and let you know if we can help.
