WHAT WE DOPractice Areas

Civil Litigation
Zealous advocacy

While we all wish disputes could be settled fairly without the intervention of attorneys, all too often we are forced to rely on the court system to achieve a just result. At Branum PLLC, our goal is to listen to our clients and craft a cost-conscious litigation plan that meets each client’s individual needs. Our attorneys have substantial pre-trial and trial experience, and we ensure that our caseload is small enough to allow us to fiercely advocate for every client we accept.

Bad Faith Insurance
Standing up for you

If you suspect an insurance company has mishandled, delayed, or wrongfully denied your insurance claim, they may be acting in ‘bad faith’ and you may be able to recover damages for their unreasonable actions.

Branum PLLC has significant experience in this area of law, and we would be happy to speak to you about your potential case.

Personal Injury / Auto Accident
Aggressive Trial Attorney

Attorney Dan Branum has represented many victims who were involved in serious truck and car wrecks in Texas and Oklahoma as well as other types of personal injuries.  Call and speak with Dan for a free consultation and consider letting us help you get full and fair compensation for your injuries.  We will do everything possible to seek the best possible result.

Dan loves going to trial and in 2018 worked with his brother John Branum to win the largest known personal injury wrongful death verdict in Oklahoma history, $68.5 million dollars.

Call us today for a free consultation at 940-564-5299 or Dan’s cell phone at 214-537-8619.  We will return your call and we are willing to work on a contingency-fee basis (i.e. you don’t pay anything to us unless you make a financial recovery in the case).

Property & Real Estate
Simplifying the complex and getting it done

Our broad knowledge of real estate-specific issues makes us uniquely suited to assist our clients in resolving complicated property matters.

We handle very basic property transfers and document preparation up to complex due diligence on large projects and real estate related lawsuits.

Business Start-Ups
Empowering your business

Our attorneys have owned small businesses, and we love getting new businesses off the ground. Whether you need help deciding what type of entity to form, assistance filing and drafting your formation and entity documents, or guidance in developing a business plan, we are a trusted source of information and ingenuity.

Business Transactions
Helping your company succeed

The Benjamin Franklin axiom that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is as true today as it was when Franklin made the quote and it sums up the importance of insuring your contractual agreements are legal and enforceable before entering into any business deal.

We have assisted businesses large and small and in many different industries in conducting business transactions.  Services we provide include drafting, reviewing, and negotiating contracts, conducting basic due diligence, negotiating business agreements, winding down entities, restructuring, negotiating internal disputes, and others.

Oil & Gas
Aggressive representation

Attorney Dan Branum’s first legal interest was for oil and gas law.  He studied oil and gas and wind law under the renowned oil and gas professor Ernest Smith at the University of Texas School of Law and others, and has experience working with energy companies and landowners in various oil and gas/energy related lawsuits.

While Dan Branum focuses his energy practice on disputes, through partnership with other attorneys, we are also able to represent you for all types of oil and gas work, including lease negotiation and title work.

Mineral Liens
Making sure your company gets paid!

If you or your company provided the materials and services (i.e. your money and your hard work!) to an owner/operator or a general contractor, you have special rights under Texas law to obtain a mineral lien to protect your right to collect on the money you are owed.

Much like mechanic and materialmen’s liens, Texas law has strict deadlines and notice requirements that must be followed to ensure a lien is valid and enforceable.  We have experience preparing, recording, and foreclosing on Texas mineral liens.  Call for a free consultation and quote for recording and enforcing your mineral lien—before it’s too late!

Bankruptcy
Working towards a fresh start

The purpose of bankruptcy is to allow you to get a fresh start by eliminating or reorganizing your debts under the protection of the federal bankruptcy code.  There are two types of Bankruptcy:  Chapter 7 for liquidation of debt and Chapter 13 for reorganization of debt.  Depending on your situation, you may qualify for one or both types of bankruptcy and we are happy to discuss your options with you.

Attorney Dan Branum’s father, James Branum, is a bankruptcy attorney in Newcastle, Oklahoma who has worked with thousands of Oklahoma families to obtain bankruptcy relief.  If you are an Oklahoma resident, you may contact James Branum at 405-387-9888.  If you are a Texas resident, you may contact this office to set up an initial bankruptcy consultation by calling 940-564-5299.

Family Law
Empathetic engagement

The attorneys at Branum PLLC are aware of how difficult and complicated it is to navigate human relationships.  That’s why we provide non-judgmental advocacy for our clients with the goal of achieving fair resolutions in even the toughest cases.  Our attorneys have experience handling a wide variety of family law issues, including divorces, child custody disputes, asset divisions, and adoptions.

Wills, Estates, Probate
Thoughtful service for you and your family

We also practice probate law in Young County and Archer County, Texas.

E-Discovery
Exceptional management and review

Our attorneys have extensive experience managing large e-discovery projects. Branum PLLC attorneys use best practices to ensure that data is properly and efficiently collected, processed, and reviewed with the highest degree of care and control. We work with third-party vendors to get our clients the best rates available in the market and can handle any sized project.

Whether you’re a client who needs trained eyes to review documents in anticipation of litigation or a small firm or solo attorney who needs a team of lawyers to help manage information in your cases, we have the ability to intelligently analyze substantial amounts of documents in a short period of time at reasonable prices.
