Our Skilled Defense Attorneys Help Houston Companies Accused of OSHA Violations

Houston, Texas, has one of the busiest ports in the nation, as well as numerous oil and gas companies, construction companies and a large aeronautics industry. All of these businesses encounter OSHA-related issues on a regular basis.

We know what your business is up against and what you stand to lose. We will protect your interests and vigorously defend against citations and claims of negligence. We can also help you prevent OSHA compliance issues like this from ever occurring again.

Keeping Your Company's Reputation Intact

If the government finds your business is out of compliance with OSHA regulations, you may lose the ability to competitively bid on government contracts and private projects. You may also gain an unfair reputation for having an unsafe workplace. We understand that these issues can negatively affect your bottom line.

Our attorneys thoroughly investigate the accusations against your company and gather the appropriate evidence, records and other paperwork. We handle all meetings, deadlines and court appearances on your behalf. We have extensive experience across many industries across the country. We have worked extensively in the Houston area with issues related to general industry, construction, the oil and gas industry, as well as maritime and shipyard issues, including:

  • Fall Protection
  • Machine Guarding
  • Energy Isolation (LOTO)
  • Excavation
  • Fires
  • Explosions
  • Spills
  • Air quality

You cannot afford to allow government inspectors to run roughshod over your company. You have a right to hire a lawyer to defend your position. We will do everything we can to prevent substantial harm to your business from this citation.
