Matters Handled by the Firm

In ‘ordinary’ civil matters, where criminal prosecution is not a consideration, Houston civil litigation lawyers David A. Nachtigall and George A.

David A. Nachtigall, Attorney at Law, PLLC has deep experience in both criminal and civil litigation, making it the ideal choice for clients facing civil litigation where there is a possibility of a concurrent civil proceeding. Understanding how to effectively navigate civil litigation that carries potential criminal consequences requires a strong understanding of both the law and the function of both systems. Few Houston civil litigations attorneys have extensive experience in both the criminal and civil justice systems. Cases that may have criminal implications take two general forms – those in which a client may become criminally charged, and those in which a client seeks the criminal prosecution of another. Our firm handles cases in both these areas. We have defended individuals who have been sued civilly for accusations as sexual assault; and we have assisted individuals who have been wronged and seek both civil and criminal sanctions. Outside of the courtroom, David has assisted individuals and business in constructing criminal cases for presentation to law enforcement, and has provided business consulting services on prevention and remediation of employee trade secret theft.
