Testimonials

“I wholeheartedly recommend the law firm of Coats Rose.  As the Chief Legal Officer of the University Health System, I have had extensive experience working with Richard Reed, Adam Richie and other attorneys in both their San Antonio and other offices. Perhaps the greatest demonstration of the success of Coats Rose's work on the CIP relates to a construction failure.  A portion of a 10 story garage under construction at the Medical Center site collapsed.  Thankfully there were no fatalities or serious injuries; however, that portion of the work was a multi-million dollar loss.  Coats Rose was immediately available to assist us as we employed a forensic engineer and undertook an extensive investigation into the collapse.  Due to the structure of the insurance program, and the strength of the protections built into our contracts, no litigation ensued over the collapse."
