Property Tax and Commercial Litigation
The Property Tax attorneys at Ikard Young are skilled and creative trial and appellate lawyers with an unparalleled record of success in property tax litigation. Like other property tax lawyers, they believe in settlement by informal negotiation or mediation, and they have obtained favorable settlements for their clients in literally hundreds of cases. But unlike all but a very few other property tax firms, Ikard Young actually tries cases and wins.
Ikard Young prides itself on providing its clients with the unique combination of highly motivated, talented and experienced civil trial and appellate lawyers who also have a deep and unrivaled knowledge and understanding of Texas property tax jurisprudence and appraisal theory, analysis and methodology.
Ikard Young has filed and prosecuted property tax appeals against appraisal districts in counties throughout Texas. Its lawyers routinely prevail in jury and bench trials in district courts in both rural and urban counties. On behalf of our taxpayer clients, we have also appeared in virtually every Texas Court of Appeals, the Texas Supreme Court and the Supreme Court of the United States of America.
Over a span of more than 40 years of trial practice, members of our litigation team have successfully represented individuals and business clients as both plaintiffs and defendants. We have prosecuted causes of action and defended against them in their individual capacities and in class actions. Our experience in civil litigation has been wide and diverse, including cases involving guardianships, contract disputes, securities, trade secrets, oil and gas, fiduciary duty, deceptive trade practices, lender liability and fraud.
