Our Clients Are
Our Best Ambassadors
We had several liens on our property claiming over $127K in unpaid wages to a sub contractor. Rahul and Luke from PatelGains got them all settled for less then $15K.
Rahul serves as an extended member of our team, a true partner in every sense. I have worked with him on a number of complex projects and he is always responsive, diligent, and proactive. I consider Rahul and the entire Patel Gaines team an invaluable asset to my business. Their work culture mirrors ours – fun, vibrant, and hard-working – a far cry from almost all other law firms.
Grant …always looking out for my best interest and will protect me and my company. [He is] responsive, organized and makes himself available to me when I need his professional opinion.
Patel Gaines is simply an outstanding group of attorneys. I have worked with many law firms through the years. Few, if any, have more dedicated approach to maximizing their clients best interest.
Patel Gaines are an invaluable resource in the ever changing property tax climate. They are not afraid of going to trial and taking on the challenge. I would suggest their aggressive approach for anyone looking for exceptional representation.
Very Aggressive, Terrific ResultsWorked on our property tax valuation case and achieved excellent results. Quick response, kept us informed when we requested information, and got us the reductions we needed.
When everyone else we spoke to about our case told us they would only assist us if we paid them a $10-15k retainer, Grant and his team took up our fight and DELIVERED on all fronts.Thanks so much to all of you.
Great Lawyer. Rahul has been working with me for about a year. Very knowledgeable about the hospitality industry and real property tax issues in the State of Texas.
