Bickerstaff Heath Delgado Acosta LLP.

Formed over 37 years ago by two division chiefs from the Office of the Texas Attorney General who developed a strong practice devoted to state and local government law, the firm has continued to grow by adding senior-level lawyers with practices in litigation, banking, corporate law, water law, and real estate. We are proud that many members of the firm are former elected, appointed, and employed members of local and state government, where they developed knowledge and contacts that assist both private business and public clients.

With offices in Austin, El Paso, and Houston, and clients based in virtually every county in Texas, we are able to provide big firm legal services without many of the conflicts and costs inherent in a larger firm.

In addition to providing the highest caliber of legal representation, we have demonstrated an unmatched commitment to diversity and involvement in our communities. Our leadership and impressive results extend our influence and contribute to our successes on behalf of our clients.
