Contingency Fee

We work on a contingency fee basis - which means we only get paid if you win

The difference between winning and losing is determined by more than just the facts of the case; it is determined by the mentality of the advocate.  Lawyers are a dime a dozen.  Many lawyers sign a case and immediately seek to settle.  These lawyers have rarely been tested, and when tested, they rarely succeed.  The client is the victim of the lawyer’s losing mentality, because it is the client who must live with the results.

At the Cobos Law Firm, winning is far more than a desire—it is an expectation. Andrew Cobos has been tested both while serving his Country in combat and in the Courtroom. Cobos does not back down from a fight, but rather approaches each case with a strategic, aggressive, organized, and assertive plan, with a singular focus on absolute victory.

If your case matters to you, choose a winner with a winning record and a winning mentality.

Legal Practice Areas

Personal Injury

car accident lawyerThousands of vehicle accidents happen every single day across Texas. Some “fender benders” involving minor injuries or property damage can be easily resolved through a simple telephone call. Other wrecks are much more serious and require medical treatment and/or lifelong injuries. Insurance companies will always undervalue your claim. Their business model is based on bringing in more money through premiums than they pay out in claims.

If your wreck is serious, you need serious representation.

The Cobos Law Firm believes in filing lawsuits quickly and achieving resolution through the litigation process. This philosophy differs from attorneys who continually work to resolve claims before filing a lawsuit, and by choosing this process, achieve a less favorable outcome for their clients.

wrongful death lawyerLosing someone that you love is one of the most agonizing events that a person can experience, particularly when their death is sudden and unexpected. Nothing can prepare you for such a loss. If you have recently had such an experience, we highly recommend that you seek to attend grief counseling, and we will provide the names and recommendations of honest, trustworthy, effective grief counselors upon request.

Achieving closure is an important part of the grieving process. Achieving such a result often requires knowing that the corporation or individual whose recklessness caused this traumatic event is held accountable for their actions. No amount of money could ever replace the loss of life but getting over such an event may require years of costly therapy.

The Cobos Law Firm is experienced in representing the surviving fathers, mothers and children in wrongful death lawsuits, and holding corporations and individual Defendants accountable for their negligent actions. Contact us for a free evaluation of your case and to initiate the process of filing a wrongful death claim.

offshore injury lawyerMaritime accidents frequently occur on older ships or on ships that have maintenance issues. Given the risk involved in maritime operations, it is common for injuries to be severe. The law governing maritime operations (known as the “Jones Act”) sets a high standard for companies that operate floating vessels on navigable waterways.

The Jones Act provides that a “seaman” (someone who spends a large amount of time on a vessel) who is injured in the course of work be monetarily compensated during their recover period and that the vessel owner provides medical care for the injured seaman.

The Cobos Law Firm specializes in representing seamen and injured contractors who have been injured while working on vessels. Contact us for a free evaluation of your maritime case and to initiate the process of filing a lawsuit.

truck accidentEvery day, large trucks are required to carry goods from one point to another on America’s roadways.  Given the massive size of these trucks, any collision with a smaller vehicle is likely to cause a large degree of damage to the individuals in the smaller car.

For this reason, truckers are required to comply with numerous regulations, including rules that limit the size of the load, training required of the drivers, and risk mitigation measures if a truck is stopped.  Trucking companies frequently seek to cut costs, and in the process, they increase the risk to other roadway occupants.

explosion injury lawyerRefineries and industrial parks are some of the most closely regulated industries in the United States. These regulations are often useful and necessary, especially provided the high degree of risk involved with working at such a facility. But accidents happen. Often such accidents are the result of owners or management refusing to upgrade equipment or parts necessary for the safe operation of the facility. Litigation is necessary in those cases because it reminds the facility owners and operators that there are consequences for cutting corners.

The Cobos Law Firm has represented numerous victims of industrial accidents and has ensured that they recover for devastating injuries. Contact us for a free evaluation of your case and to initiate the process of filing a claim occurring as the result of an industrial accident.

dram shopDrunk driving is a serious problem in Texas.  Intoxicated individuals who seek to operate vehicles should be held accountable, but so too must the bars and restaurants who serve visibly intoxicated patrons.

It is common for a drunk driver to be punished for their actions, but it is less common for the bar or restaurant to make restitution for the injuries they contributed to causing. The Cobos Law Firm sues bars and restaurants who over serve their patrons.

Maritime Law

You’ve planned the trip of the lifetime that has now turned tragic.  Cruise ships can provide a perfect vacation; but given the close quarters, the elements of nature on the open sea, and the shared space with thousands of strangers, it is entirely possible to experience accidents, injuries, theft, crime, or sickness. Cruise ships have a legal duty to provide a safe environment for its passengers. If your cruise ship operator has breached its duty to provide a safe environment and an injury occurs, the operator is responsible for the damage.

If you’ve been injured on a cruise ship, you need an experienced and knowledgeable legal team to hold the operator accountable. The Cobos Law Firm specializes in representing individuals who have been harmed on a cruise ship. Contact us for a free evaluation of your cruise ship case.

Boating accidents are unfortunately all too common. Boat owners and operators have a responsibility to control their vessel and ensure that other individuals are not harmed by their actions. Damages involving boating accidents are often severe, and there are numerous common themes regarding boating liability, such as driver intoxication or inexperience.

The Cobos Law Firm specializes in boating accidents. We believe in filing lawsuits quickly and achieving resolution through the litigation process. This philosophy differs from attorneys who seek to settle cases for pennies-on-the-dollar before filing a lawsuit. Contact us for a free evaluation of your case and to initiate the process of filing a lawsuit based on your boating accident.

Offshore oil rig workers are members of a dangerous profession, particularly given the complexity of machinery required to perform the work. Rig owners and operators have a responsibility to ensure that the equipment is suitable, that the workers are trained, and the conditions are suitable for safe operating. Often rig owners create hazardous conditions by not replacing or upgrading equipment that has been deteriorated from the sea salt and sea air. If you have been injured in an offshore oil rig accident, you need a serious, results-oriented law firm.

Maritime piracy is more common than many people realize. Although the individuals committing acts of maritime privacy can rarely be held accountable, shipping companies have a responsibility to ensure that its employees and independent contractors travel on safe routes and are properly equipped to handle such dangerous circumstances.

Veterans Disability

The Defense Base Act (DBA) is a form of worker’s compensation protection that is provided to civilian (non-military) workers or independent contractors working outside the United States on government contracts or any United States military base. A civilian or independent contractor who is injured while serving at an overseas military base will be covered under the Defense Base Act, even if such injury or death that happens outside of the scope of work the individual has been hired to perform, or if the injury occurs during off-work hours. The DBA is a form of workman’s compensation and requires an experienced and knowledgeable law firm to handle such a claim.

Business Law

Businesses are comprised of individuals, and for this reason, disputes are inevitable. Whether it is a contract that is breached, an employer who has acted fraudulently, or a business partner who has embezzlement funds, it is important to hire a legal team that is familiar with business terminology and processes. Andrew Cobos has a degree as a Master of Business Administration (MBA) and has handled some of the largest business disputes in the Country. Contact us for a free evaluation of your case.

Insurance companies operate by a simple business model: to be profitable they must pay out less in claims than they bring in from premiums. Insurance adjusters sometimes receive hefty bonuses by denying otherwise meritorious claims. This practice is unfair to the claimant, but it is the way most that insurance companies do business. The Cobos Law Firm takes a firm and aggressive approach to dealing with insurance companies, regardless of whether the bad insurance company is in contract with the client (first-party), or whether the insurance company is obligated to protect another liable individual (third-party).

The technicalities of the internet require a legal team with the capability of understanding the language and methods of commerce available on the Internet and the knowledge of translating technical details into successful legal arguments. The Cobos Law Firm has such knowledge and experience and is prepared to handle your case.

A passive legal strategy is not a recipe for success.  In our legal system, the Plaintiff (i.e. the person initiating the lawsuit) is required to prove the alleged harm caused by the wrongdoer (i.e. the person or entity defending the lawsuit).  To carry this “burden of proof,” the Plaintiff’s attorney must thoroughly investigate the case, gather the available evidence, and prepare the case for trial. These necessary steps cannot without an actionable mindset on the part of the lawyer.

The Cobos Law Firm is an aggressive and action-oriented firm that drives results.  We don’t sit around hoping that the case will magically disappear, because it won’t.  And if it does, the resolution will not be beneficial to the client.

Instead, the Cobos Law Firm prepares your case for trial with a singular focus on winning. An aggressive and action-oriented approach is the key ingredient to our many victories.

PAY NOTHING UNLESS WE WIN YOUR CASE

Contact Us

Every person should have the ability to access competent legal representation, regardless of their personal financial situation.

That’s our philosophy at the Cobos Law Firm which is why we work primarily on a contingency basis. That means you don’t pay a dime unless we win your case through trial or settlement.  You will never be required to cut a check, initiate a bank draft, secure a money order, or turnover cash. 

Sharing the financial risk of a lawsuit is just one way in which the Cobos Law Firm demonstrates its commitment to winning for the underdog.

FAQs

NO. Insurance companies have a single objective: to pay you as little as possible. The Cobos Law Firm recommends that you avoid speaking to the responsible person’s insurance company or sign any documents unless you have first consulted with our firm or another qualified attorney.

It depends on the factors involved, particularly the individual or entity at fault and the damages caused. Each case is evaluated individually, but the case evaluation is free. Contact us today if you would like to speak to an attorney to review your case.

Most frequently the Cobos Law Firm handles cases on a “contingency basis”, which simply means that our fee is dependent on the recovery we obtain for you (typically 25% – 40%). This method allows an individual without monetary resources to obtain excellent representation at no upfront monetary risk. Based on the contingent fee model, you do not pay any legal fees unless and until the case settles or we win your case in court. Once the settlement or award check is received, the firm deducts its and case expenses. The balance (or “net”) of the money then goes to the client.

Lawsuits can sometimes be expensive and require the person bringing the lawsuit to pay for items such as filing costs, deposition costs, costs to obtaining and reviewing medical records, travel expenses, and other expenses associated with trial preparation. Most frequently the Cobos Law Firm will advance money for all these case expenses, which will then be deducted from the settlement or award check when the case is resolved. Should the case be unsuccessful, the Client will not be required to reimburse the Firm for case expenses and no attorneys fee will be paid.

A free legal consultation is an opportunity for us to answer your questions about the case and about the law, for you to learn about your legal options, and for you to assess whether the Cobos Law Firm is the right fit for you.

Each lawsuit presents different legal challenges, but generally a person who has been harmed by the negligence of another person or entity is entitled to recover for the damages caused by the incident. The worth of the lawsuit is measured by the damages you sustained. These damages can include the cost of medical expenses, disability, pain and suffering, disfigurement, loss of enjoyment in life, and in some cases, punitive damages.  A jury will decide the amount a victim should be awarded, but generally their considerations include the nature of the injuries, the extent of damage, the degree of pain and disability, and the ways that the injury will affect your life.

Often a victim of a car accident does not have the money to pay for a doctor’s visit and lacks health insurance. But the absence of money or insurance should not preclude you from getting medical assistance following an accident where you were not at fault. The Cobos Law Firm has relationships with numerous medical facilities whereby the victim of an accident receives personalized medical treatment with no upfront cost. Any amounts paid to the medical provider come from the case settlement or verdict, thereby assisting the accident victim and negating the need to come “out of pocket” to pay for the medical care they received following the accident.

Most car accidents are shocking and unexpected events. Your adrenaline is flowing, you have likely been physically injured, and you try to recount whether you could have avoided the situation. The most important steps to take immediately following a car accident is to stay calm and seek medical assistance. Then, ensure that you conduct each of the following steps, if possible:

o Call the police and tell the officer that you would like for him to complete a police report.
o Take photos of all vehicles involved at the accident scene.
o Speak to witnesses who observed the collision and get their contact information.
o Ask for insurance information and driver’s license from the other persons involved in the accident. If you have a cell phone on hand, take pictures of these documents.

Most importantly, seek out a doctor and get a full physical workup. This step is important, regardless of whether you believe your injuries are minor. Many injuries are recognized only after the adrenaline has worn off. Sone injuries, known as latent injuries, arise well after the incident and can provide to be life altering.
