Curl Stahl Geis A Professional Corporation

Curl Stahl Geis is recognized as one of the leading civil trial law firms in San Antonio.

Firm Overview

Our attorneys have the litigation expertise expected from a large law firm. But we are a small firm, able to provide a more hands-on approach to the legal problems of our clients. You will find our lawyers knowledgeable and approachable. Our law firm is located in downtown San Antonio, Texas. We limit our law practice to litigation. Often, law firms that do not handle litigation ask us to handle lawsuits for their clients. We represent businesses and individuals in complex cases, especially contract disputes, real estate disputes, business litigation and commercial litigation. We practice in state and federal courts, at both the trial and appellate levels. We are zealous advocates for our clients, and we strive to be effective yet cost-conscious. We have a distinguished reputation for our ability both in the courtroom and out of court. We are committed to the highest ethical and professional standards.
