Randall A. Pulman founded Pulman, Cappuccio, Pullen & Benson, LLP in 2004. He graduated from the University of Texas School of Law in May of 1986 and was granted a license to practice law in the State of Texas in November, 1986. Mr. Pulman's practice emphasizes arbitration of civil disputes and commercial civil trial matters in both federal and state courts.
Mr. Pulman has represented a wide range of commercial clients on the plaintiff's side in the fields of banking and creditor rights, bankruptcy, telecommunications, broker/dealer disputes, and insurance coverage disputes. Mr. Pulman has extensive courtroom and arbitration experience, including numerous jury trials, and has argued two cases before the Texas Supreme Court.
Mr. Pulman brings his understanding of financial statements, tax structures, finance and accounting together with experience and advocacy to effectively communicate and advocate his client's position in trial, arbitration or mediation. Mr. Pulman understands how business is done and can explain it in such a fashion that judges, juries and arbitrators can understand the dispute and issue at hand. Oftentimes, Mr. Pulman is able to identify regulatory violations and lapses by the opposition and leverage those regulatory issues to his client's benefit.
This understanding and ability to explain difficult business concepts in simple and recognizable terms is best evidenced by the wide range of published opinions on a wide variety of topics that have come from Mr. Pulman's cases over his years of practice. Mr. Pulman regularly practices in State, Federal and bankruptcy courts all over the country. He knows the procedure and uses that knowledge and experience to his client's advantage.
In short, Mr. Pulman is one of a few lawyers that can and does take an understanding of how business is done, mixes that knowledge with a deep and broad knowledge of the law and procedure and crafts a legal solution that fits the client's particular and unique need.
Mr. Pulman is a businessman himself and is sensitive to the costs of litigation, arbitration and dispute resolution. Accordingly, he crafts a solution and fee arrangement with the client that fits the case at handhourly, contingent or mixed.
Mr. Pulman received a Bachelor of Business Administration from the University of Texas at Austin in 1983 and his Doctor of Jurisprudence from the University of Texas School of Law in 1986. While in law school, Mr. Pulman served on the editorial board of The Review of Litigation and was a Director of the Board of Advocates.
Mr. Pulman is a native of San Antonio, Texas, is married to his childhood sweetheart and has three children.
