AREAS OF EXPERTISE
PUBLIC SCHOOL DISTRICTS
Powell Law Group is a full-service, state-wide law firm whose mission is to provide the highest quality personalized training and comprehensive legal service to school districts, institutes of higher education, local governments, private individuals, and businesses. Our attorneys are both counselors and advocates, dedicated to an uncompromising commitment to excellence and client service. Since the firm was established in 1996 with the principal office located just minutes from downtown Austin, our approach to the practice of law has always involved early consultation and intervention, client training, and timely responses to client concerns. Much has changed over the last two decades. Despite our growth and evolution, our original mission remains the same—to provide trusted counsel and exceptional service. We have expanded from one office to four to better serve the legal needs of our clients. The firm’s resources and areas of expertise have grown to encompass the entire gambit of legal services. This growth is a testimony to our hard-earned reputation as counselors and advocates with a passion for public education and unparalleled commitment to client service. Our clients are as diverse as the great state of Texas.
