Law Office of Frederick J. Wagner

Attorney at Law & Mediator

Experience You Can Trust In Both Representation and
In Mediating Resolutions To Your Case


The client comes first!

In legal representation, you need counsel that is responsive and effective.  Personal contact, when you need help the most, is what sets this office apart from larger, unwieldy law firms.  You're not just another file; you're my client.  When you have a question, or legal problem, you don't want to wait days before being contacted by an unknown attorney who has been assigned to your case.  No matter the circumstances, we'll treat you with respect. For over twenty years, I have been proud to provide my clients with responsive, quality representation. My consistent track record of uncompromising ethics instills confidence and trust. Cutting edge technologies allow quick responses and give you the most relevant information and perspectives on your case.

If you're a business owner, it's important to employ the services of a qualified attorney. One legal issue, without good legal representation, could significantly affect the success of your business.  During my career, I have represented both individuals and businesses involved in the following areas: 
  • Premises Liability, including third party contractor accidents in your plant, at your work site, or in your small business, security/assault cases, and trip and fall accidents; 
  • Products Liability, including defective design and manufacture of products and systems; 
  • Transportation claims;
  • First Party Insurance Litigation, including uninsured/under-insured motorist coverage cases and storm-related property damage;
  • General Tort Negligence, including personal injury and wrongful death;
  • Toxic Tort, including both asbestos and silica exposure for product manufacturers and suppliers; 
  • Breach of Contract/DTPA claims; and
  • Wage and Labor Law claims.
Whether you have a legal issue, or are facing a potential lawsuit, contact me today to discuss whether I can assist you with your concerns. I'll represent you effectively and advise you on what's best for you and your company.  I am dedicated to achieving the best possible outcome for every client. With the right person on your side, you're better prepared to handle whatever legal disputes may happen.   

Mediation Services

"Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can. Point out to them how the nominal winner is often a real loser - in fees, expenses and waste of time." -- Abraham Lincoln, 1850. Unfortunately, too often disputes or accidents involving parties result in lengthy litigation. The Texas Constitution of 1845 recognized the need for arbitration of citizens' disputes.  In the late 1970's, the Texas Supreme Court first began discussing the need to create a system to help clear out the backlog of cases in Texas Courts.  From those early efforts came alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation.  Today, most state and federal courts will order the parties to mediate their cases prior to trial.  Webster's Dictionary defines mediation as "...friendly or diplomatic intervention, usually by consent or invitation, for settling differences between persons... ."  In short, mediation provides adversarial parties with a final moment to control the outcome of their cases, before handing their fates off to the judge or twelve strangers on the jury.  It also allows parties a chance to either avoid proceeding to, or shortening the length of, litigation.

In over twenty year's of civil litigation practice, I have handled a variety of different types of cases, involving various areas of the law, as stated above.  This gives me an insight into the types of litigation that most individuals and businesses encounter, and experience in evaluating potential strengths and weaknesses of each side.  In my civil practice, I have represented clients in hundreds of mediations, and recognize the important role that this dispute resolution tool plays in our legal system.  I am firm in my belief that mediation can be an effective tool in resolving contentious or emotional disputes between parties, whether they involve alleged tortfeasors and injured parties, or two companies in a business dispute.  It is this experience and belief that I bring to each mediation.

I offer my services as mediator to interested parties, seeking to resolve their differences in a controlled, confidential environment. I am certified as a mediator through the Harris County Dispute Resolution Center, and remain a volunteer mediator for the DRC.  I can conduct a mediation for you, either in your offices or at a local dispute resolution center, and am willing to travel for mediations outside the Houston, Texas area.  If you need an experienced mediator, who will work toward getting your dispute resolved, please contact me today to schedule your mediation.
