Law Firm Overview

Entering the new millennium, Ed Barker, Roland Leon and Rick Fancher envisioned the creation of a strong and powerful civil litigation law firm. Unlike many law firms, we have no ambition of becoming a "full service" enterprise. Instead, we focus our energies and resources on defense litigation. With a rich background in insurance defense, the founding partners seized a unique opportunity to form this law firm and fill a need for experienced trial lawyers in South Texas.

On January 1, 2000, the law firm of Barker, Leon & Fancher, LLP was formed and is located in Corpus Christi, Texas. There are seven (7) attorneys in our firm, providing a broad range of litigation services to individuals and business clients throughout South Texas. Our law firm is AV rated by Martindale Hubbell.

Our law firm represents clients in the areas of general civil litigation, including Automobile Accidents; Personal Injury; Business and Commercial; Labor and Employment; Products Liability; Professional Liability Errors and Omissions; Premise Liability; Environmental and Toxic Tort; Workers Compensation; Communications and Media Law; Bank and Securities Liability; Civil Rights; Education Law; Ethics and Professional Responsibility; Class Actions; Construction Law; Dental, Legal, Medical and Healthcare Malpractice and Real Estate Litigation. Our attorneys represent clients in every level of state and federal courts.

Our attorneys are committed to the pursuit of excellence and effective communication. We demonstrate the highest level of personal and professional ethics as well as the utmost concern for our clients.

We utilize state-of-the-art technology and cost-effective methods to provide services in a timely, client-oriented manner. Our approach focuses on each client's background, needs, and goals. We are committed to responding promptly to telephone calls and to reporting on cases regularly. We strive to minimize and eliminate risk by informing clients of significant changes in the law.

Our dedication to quality, understanding of the law, trust, and respect is the foundation for our long-standing relationships with clients and the community.
