Sanders’ fight for the little guy spans more than four decades. Whether holding big banks, giant insurance companies, or Fortune 500 powerhouses accountable for individuals and small businesses, Sanders has proved out the potential for small law firm advantage over larger firms. It comes through operational efficiency, tactical flexibility, and personal responsiveness.
One example — unobtrusive one at the time — showed up in the 1980 trial of Vail vs. Texas Farm Bureau. When, in 1988 the Texas Supreme Court upheld Vail, it became the law of the land, establishing the high-water mark of protection for Texas insureds. And it has been much celebrated since.

So, being out-manned doesn’t have to mean out-gunned. This small firm has consistently competed against much larger firms and, significantly, has been efficient enough to handle business litigation cases on a contingency basis, a service rarely offered by other firms.
Of course, not every case should be accepted. Sanders’ hope has been that clients in deserving cases will find competence, hard work, and dedicated effort. Cases protecting small business property rights, defending borrowers against big banks, enforcing contract rights, protecting landowners from government land-grabs, enforcing individual rights against the government, protecting consumers from abuse, and generally helping folks with complex litigation issues — these mark our law firm’s scope of services.
There have also been times when larger companies have engaged Sanders to assist in a battles between equals. Regardless of client size, however, his pledge is to provide quality service at reasonable cost, giving every client a fair shake.
On a community level, as a citizen Sanders has supported and led numerous religious, charitable, school, and civic projects, endeavoring to give back to a community that has been generous with him and his family. He has also, as an adjunct professor, taught Business Law and Organizations for several years at Austin College in Sherman.
