Business Lawyers First Since 1987Photo of the Houston Skyline


From our downtown Houston, Texas offices, we have lived by our motto: Business Lawyers First. The clients of Pagel, Davis & Hill, P.C. (PDH) primarily include businesses that are owned by original founders, families, management teams, and private equity groups. 


PDH takes the time to gather a deep understanding of our clients' businesses—including their respective industry sectors, competition, cultures and business plans. We don't just give "standard" legal analysis-instead we partner with our clients to find successful business solutions and strategies.


Our firm's shareholders, senior and junior associates, contract lawyers, paralegals/law clerks and support staff have varying experiences and abilities. Our collective insight and experience allows PDH to offer expertise in advising businesses, helping them grow, and successfully resolving those disputes they may encounter.

Many of our firm's lawyers are business and/or industry leaders themselves, having owned and operated businesses, sat on Boards of Directors, acted as in-house general counsel for private and publicly traded companies, and trained business owners and managers on a variety of topics through lectures, seminars, articles, and web based training sessions.
