Disclaimers, privacy notice & miscellaneous information 

I am indeed *A* lawyer, but don't assume that I'm *YOUR* lawyer until I've specifically confirmed that with you in writing. Reading this website creates no attorney-client relationship. If you contact me, don't share secrets with me unless and until I ask you to, because until I do that, I cannot promise to protect your secrets. (See my Contact webpage for more details.)
Don't rely on anything you read here as being legal advice intended for you or your specific case, because it's not.
My past results cannot guarantee our future results. The practice of law is an art, not a science, and the legal system is intrinsically variable. New precedents and statutes constantly roil the law, and juror attitudes evolve over time and vary from place to place. Each case and each client is unique; results depend on the facts of each dispute (among other things). The information that I have presented here is very specific, and it therefore may be useful. But your mileage may vary.
The cases and results described here are matters of public record. On request, I will happily provide further names, dates, docket numbers, etc., for most of the cases referenced here. Confidentiality agreements bar me from disclosing some settlement amounts, however, and continuing attorney-client privilege or considerations of "good taste" may limit my further disclosures.
My inclusion of hyperlinks to other entities' websites does not necessarily imply that I endorse or agree with the information or views presented there.

The text and overall presentation of this website are © 2006-2016 by William J. Dyer, all rights reserved. I've scavenged photos and the logos of clients and other entities (including logos from from, the State Bar of Texas, and the Texas Board of Legal Specialization) from their respective websites or elsewhere on the internet, and any copyright and trademark rights to such graphics belong to them, not to me. My sincere hope and belief is that anything I have quoted or used here that is not public domain is nevertheless within the "fair use" exception to the copyright laws when used for these limited purposes. Anyone who thinks otherwise should email me.

NOTICE TO CLIENTS (per Texas Gov't Code § 81.079): The State Bar of Texas investigates and prosecutes professional misconduct committed by Texas attorneys. Although not every complaint against or dispute with a lawyer involves professional misconduct, the State Bar’s Office of Chief Disciplinary Counsel will provide you with information about how to file a complaint. Please call 1-800-932-1900 toll-free for more information, or follow 
this link. I support the state law which requires disclosure of this information to clients, and I have nothing to hide or fear on this account.

PRIVACY NOTICE: Emails, text messages, and/or other electronic messages that I transmit via the internet or my phone (and any files transmitted with them) may contain confidential information subject to attorney-client, attorney work-product, or other legal privileges, or that is otherwise protected by law, including the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, 18 U.S.C. §§ 2510-2521, from unauthorized disclosure or use. If you are not the intended recipient, then: (1) you have received such information through inadvertent error; (2) no intention to waive any privileges or rights should be implied; (3) you must not make any disclosure, distribution, copying, or use of it; (4) please delete the original and any attachments and duplicates; and (5) please advise me of this error via a new email (not as a reply).

DISCLAIMER OF DIGITAL OR ELECTRONIC SIGNATURES: Nothing on this website, nor in any email or other electronic communications sent by me through, should be implied or construed, under 15 U.S.C. §§ 7001-7006 or otherwise, to be intended as an electronic or digital signature on my behalf, unless I have otherwise specifically stated therein.

Nothing on this website, nor in any email or other communication from me, is ever intended to be tax advice of any kindI know almost nothing of tax law. There may well be tax consequences to many of the transactions that are the subject of, or that result from, my litigation practice for my clients, but if so, I have only the vaguest of notions as to what those consequences are or might be. My clients must not expect me to advise or represent them with respect to those tax consequences, and they instead ought to seek tax advice directly from other qualified, independent professionals. (On request, I can refer clients to such professionals.) I do not, and never want to, "practice before the Internal Revenue Service" as that term is defined in section 10.2(a)(4) of Treasury Department Circular No. 230, 31 C.F.R. part 10.  My practice does not include "preparing and filing documents, corresponding and communicating with the Internal Revenue Service, rendering written advice with respect to any entity, transaction, plan or arrangement, or other plan or arrangement having a potential for tax avoidance or evasion, and representing a client at conferences, hearings and meetings." Nothing in any oral or written communication from me (including any attachments) has been intended or written to be used, and nothing may be used, for the purpose of (i) avoiding tax-related penalties under the Internal Revenue Code or (ii) promoting, marketing or recommending to another party any tax-related matters.
