Representing workers, professionals and executives.
Why Choose Us
At Schreiber | Knockaert, PLLC, when you call us, you get us. Joseph Schreiber and Erik Knockaert have decades of experience inside the courtroom handling complex litigation. We both graduated with honors from the University of Texas School of Law, consistently ranked among the very top law schools in the country. We began our careers with large, international law firms, getting some of the best on-the-job training available, before going out on our own.
We handle serious personal injuries, complex business lawsuits, and employment cases. We are frequently referred cases by other attorneys that are difficult, complex and out of the ordinary, or are found by clients who have been turned down by other attorneys who don't want to deal with a case with unique circumstances or difficult law, or who don't want to go up against large defendants with deep pockets or against the government. We have sued the United States Army in a multiple wrongful death case. We have sued the largest public and private organizations. We have defended individuals and small businesses in complex commercial litigation involving allegations of racketeering, fraud and breach of contracts. We frequently go up against opponents in large downtown law firms – the kinds of firms we grew up in – and more than hold our own.

No matter what kind of case it is, we analyze the goals of the client, find the pressure points, and find a way to best handle the case and support the client's objectives. If your case can't be settled early in the process on favorable terms, we try the case to win. And we do it in a way that is intentional about finding the case's pressure points, rather than following a set formula on how to handle the case.
Both Erik Knockaert and Joseph Schreiber answer our own phones. We respond to our own emails. We are the ones who show up in court. We are the ones who craft the strategy for your case and implement it. When you hire us, you get us. You don't get the name of a large, tall-tower law firm who will throw an army of young associates you don't know, and didn't hire, at the case. You get lawyers who know you, learn about you and your legal issues, and work for your best result.
