At Schreiber | Knockaert, PLLC, when you call us, you get us.  We answer our phones and emails.  We work our cases.  When you hire us as your legal team, you get us as your legal team.  The legal system is intricate and complex.  We explain things.  We talk to you about your options.  We give you a voice.  At every turn, we do what’s best for you.  We don’t back down from anybody.

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.  We handle cases with unique circumstances or difficult law, and we 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.
