At Jackson Gilmour & Dobbs, PC, we strive to exceed our clients' expectations and to provide exceptional service on each and every engagement. In order to better serve our clients, we believe that it is vitally important to fully understand their business sectors and broader markets. By appreciating these broader indicators and trends, we can better identify critical business issues for our clients and better advise them in discrete litigation or environmental matters.

Through this client-centric approach, we have developed a rare understanding of the operational, commercial, and environmental issues impacting railroads, port authorities, private institutional landowners, and public entities. We have learned a great deal about our clients in these particular sectors through years of representing them in matters involving contaminated sediments and waterways, tariff construction and enforcement, commercial litigation and contract disputes, pipeline easements and related disputes, catastrophic accidents, spills and derailments, emergency prevention and response actions, internal investigations, and a wide variety of other operational matters.

Additionally, we work hard to bring added value to our representation and learn more about our clients through investing our time and resources in organizations that are important to our clients. Thus, we regularly attend and present at a variety of industry and trade groups impacting our clients, such as the America Association of Port Authorities (AAPA), Texas Ports Association (TPA), Gulf Ports Association of the Americas (GPAA), the Gulf Intracoastal Canal Association (GICA), and the National Association of Railroad Trial Counsel (NARTC). Likewise, our active participation in numerous national, state, local, and industry specific associations and sections ensures that we stay abreast of the most recent changes in the laws impacting our clients. By regularly attending and participating in such organizations, we better understand our clients' businesses and are able to identify trends and opportunities that could impact our clients' business and legal interests.

Moreover, the attorneys of Jackson Gilmour & Dobbs, PC have rare experience in representing the interests of governmental entities of all levels, including states, municipal and local governmental entities, public port authorities and airport systems, and criminal and environmental enforcement agencies. This experience gives our attorneys insight and experience that benefit the representation of both our public and private clients.

In short, we are convinced that we can better represent and advise our clients by simply working to better understand them and their business.
