Anthony O'Hanlon, PC
The quality of a firm is reflected in its clients and their views about the firm. It is no different at Sanders, O'Hanlon & Motley.
"I would recommend these guys in a heart beat. Our little Central Texas company was nearly destroyed by a Fortune 500 corporation basically stealing our company's invention. After interviewing five law firms, I chose the Sanders' firm because Roger demonstrated a rare ability to quickly and comprehensively evaluate a host of facts and documents critical to our case. We battled this multinational corporation and its giant law firm for three years. Depositions were taken in Boston, New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. The law firm remained open to our input in carrying out its game plan , displayed a total commitment to our case, and never tried to force us to settle. The Sanders, O'Hanlon & Motley team pulled together key engineering concepts, tons of documents in intensive pre-trial discovery, and great demonstrative evidence in the federal trial. One of their strongest points was their ability to adapt to the shifting trial-scape (as we learned from discovery) while still maintaining clear focus on the overall strategy. They went the extra mile in every detail. With their help we won our case with a record setting verdict and saved our company. This law firm may be small but it is definitely world class."
J.L. Love, President of Maximicer, Inc., Georgetown, Texas
"We suffered a loss of trade secrets and related intellectual property when a trusted employee was wooed away by a competitor. It was seriously unsettling. We didn't know what all had been taken. Our company was clearly at risk. We were referred to the Sanders' firm by another lawyer. These guys stayed with us all the way, from sophisticated forensic computer analysis to complicated document review. They cracked the case open, finding a critical fact the other side had missed. I think that is what led to a substantial, but confidential settlement. In fact, when it was finally put to bed our opponent sent out an email asking all the lawyers on both sides: "So is this nightmare finally over?" I am glad these guys were on my side in this gut wrenching experience. We continue to use them as our general counsel."
Gordon Barr, President of Shore-to-Sea, Inc., Frisco, Texas
"My family and the little community in which I live faced an impossible fight against a collection of cities 100 times greater in size and resources. After several lawsuits and thousands of hours of legal battles, my family and the town of Bells defeated the decade-long effort to force a regional landfill in our small community. We gained both complete victory and a valued friend. We couldn't have done it without the Sanders' firm. When no one else thought we could win -- when it was absolutely the darkest, our lawyers guided us through the night. If we'd lost that case, it would have hurt my family, but it would have absolutely devastated lots of small rural businesses, the local schools, and our town. We're proud to call Roger our friend and lawyer ."
Carolyn Dexheimer, Bells, Texas community leader
"My wife and I were undone by the loss of our business when a major fraud was committed by a Fortune 500 company against my car dealership. After other lawyers had abandoned hope and my case, Roger's firm took the case and carried it to a substantial settlement just before trial. They took depositions in Detroit and elsewhere and put the documents together in such a way that it finally made the fraud clear enough for everyone to see. I didn't have anywhere else to turn, and am grateful that the Sanders firm was on our side. I don't know who else would have fought as hard or as intelligently against those long odds. If ever there was a bet-the-company case, this was it."
Larry Hauptrief, President of Combined Ventures, Inc. , Johnson City, Texas
"We didn't know Roger's firm from Adam's off ox. Never heard of him. But my business partner and I were directed to him based on strong recommendations from highly qualified Dallas lawyers unable to take our case. It was a complex business contract case involving many millions of dollars and a billion dollar opponent. In a few months of intensive work, these quys worked out the settlement my partner and I had hoped for. I have consulted his firm again since then, despite the fact that my business is a couple of states away from Texas."
Ron Moyes, President of North American Sleek Craft, Inc., Lake Havasu, Arizona
"Roger Sanders and Anthony O'Hanlon represented me in a lawsuit against my franchisor. We prevailed in the case, despite a substantial counter-claim against me. There was a million dollar swing between what was sought against me and what we were awarded. I owe Roger and Anthony a debt of gratitude for going the extra mile in preparing the case and in court. Anthony discovered an unfindable witness and that, coupled with their evaluation of the trail of key documents, helped turn the tide in my favor. I would recommend this firm to anyone; in fact, I have over the years since they handled my case."
Dr. Jerry Gundersheimer, Sherman, Texas
"I first met Anthony O’Hanlon when I was Next Friend in a lawsuit for a gentleman who had no family and lived in a large institution for adults with developmental disabilities in Sherman. The gentleman had been abused and raped at the facility and Mr. O’Hanlon handled his lawsuit against the institution. Mr. O’Hanlon was diligent in pursuing this case and exhibited a real concern for the plaintiff’s well being. The case was settled, providing him money for the additional treatment he would need for a better life. Anthony was knowledgeable and informative to me in my capacity as Next Friend. I now consider Anthony to be my friend."
Doris Clark, Whitesboro, Texas
"Anthony O'Hanlon represented me and many others in a lawsuit arising from an environmental hazard. When we approached the firm, we were scared because we felt we were up against an opponent with much more power than we possessed. We were frustrated and angry. During our meetings with Anthony, he was always professional while keeping a caring attitude toward's everyone's concerns. He operated above the turmoil and did not get caught up in the drama. During mediation, Anthony's skills and consideration helped each of us stay on course in an area where none of us had any expertise. What was a very challenging event in my life gave way to the knowledge that there are still those among us who will give their professional best to the task at hand and make right that which was wrong. Anthony O'Hanlon is one of those individuals in my life."
Carol Troxell, Sherman, Texas
“My family was referred to Michael Young by an attorney friend in Austin. My elderly mother was involved in a federal court lawsuit involving over a million dollars of life insurance proceeds. Michael filed a motion to dismiss the case and the other side responded by agreeing to a settlement very favorable to my mother. My family was very pleased with Michael's aggressive representation of my mother's interests and his prompt responses to our questions. I would recommend Michael and the firm of Sanders, O'Hanlon & Motley to anyone involved in a dispute regarding life insurance benefits or the distribution of an estate."
Rafael S., Hunt County
"In 2006 a tragic event happened to our family. My youngest son was shot in our home by a young school mate. We were referred to Anthony O’Hanlon as an attorney to consult. We were spending most of our time dealing with my son in the hospital and in rehab. Mr. O’Hanlon took care of our legal needs, and did so with passion and desire. We dealt with Anthony O’Hanlon as our attorney, but before this ordeal was finished Anthony became a friend and part of our family. Through Mr. O’Hanlon’s efforts my son Steven’s medical related financial concerns have been alleviated for his lifetime. We thank Mr. O’Hanlon and his Sherman law firm greatly for their professionalism, dedication and resolve. Due to our relationship with Anthony O’Hanlon, I no longer tell the joke; “What is it when you have 50 lawyers at the bottom of the lake…”
Randy Jones, Bells, Texas
"I am a senior citizen on fixed income and dependant on oxygen treatments. I was living independently in my own apartment in Bonham. My electricity was wrongfully terminated after I refused to pay for amounts billed to an address at which I had never lived and for persons I had never met. Without power and unable to use my nebulizer, I was forced to abandon my apartment and move in with my daughter. Michael Young agreed to take my case against the electric company when other Sherman attorneys turned me down. At first they only offered to pay a nominal amount. However, after Michael persisted in gathering evidence of the electric company's wrongful conduct, they agreed to pay a settlement that accounted for the despair I felt in having to abandon my independent lifestyle becaused I refused to cave in to their wrongful demands for payment. I am grateful for Michael's determination to see that I was compensated for what the electric company did to me."

We are sure that you could, if you looked, find folks who cuss us, since not every case -- particularly these risky ones -- can be won. We've had a good run. Yet, we just can't guarantee more than heartfelt effort, out-of-the-box thinking, and forthright dealings with you as a client. And when we think the case needs someone else, we will do our best either to refer you or to bring in reinforcements. And we're not reluctant to suggest that, in particular circumstances, you seek a second opinion. We want what's best for you, and sometimes that is for your case to be handled by someone else.
