Wisdom – Courage – Justice

Brian Sanford has been a trial lawyer for over 25 years practicing law both in Texas and in other jurisdictions. Although our primary practice is employment law, we have handled a wide variety of cases including physical injury and business claims.

The courtroom can be a frightening place with many pitfalls. This causes many people to fear or lose confidence in the justice system.

Sanford believes that the courthouse, when operating properly, is a honorable place ordained to do good things for people with just causes. A court provides a remedy to those harmed by a violation of the law. Providing this remedy is the measure of a civilized society.

A jury, as a committee of persons from the community, acts as the conscience of the community to protect the community.

The law allows attorneys, such as Sanford, to act as a private attorney general in employment civil rights cases to pursue wrongs and protect the public from future violations.

Everyone deserves protection from harmful violations and to have a qualified person standing up for him or her in the courtroom.

John Adams on Juries

“Representative government and trial by jury are the heart and lungs of liberty. Without them we have no other fortification against being ridden like horses, fleeced like sheep, worked like cattle, and fed and clothed like swine and hounds.”

– John Adams, 1774
