David Firm, Goliath Impact


At Sanders, Motley, Young & Galllardo, a substantial percentage of our cases come from referrals from the people who know cases best -- other professionals. We are grateful for that recognition by our peers and their selection of  our senior partner, as a Texas Super Lawyer, an honor reserved for only the top 5% of all lawyers in Texas. That recognition comes from others appreciating that we take on the big guys for our clients. We strive to be a David firm with Goliath impact.

We handle life insurance disputes throughout the state.  In the past five years, we have represented life insurance claimants in court or arbitrations in Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio, Amarillo, Lubbock, Plano, Sherman, Texarkana, and Waco, to recover millions of dollars in life insurance proceeds. We also often represent beneficiaries across the country who are involved in a dispute arising in Texas.

We are extremely proud of our track record of results for our clients and the personal service we offer. We have assisted our clients in recovering substantial benefits involving disputed life insurance policies involving many insurance companies, including:


Anthem Blue Cross

American National 


Life Insurance Company of North America


Monumental Life Insurance

National Western Life Insurance

New York Life


Standard Insurance Company


Our personal relationship with, and commitment to, our clients is at the heart of our effectiveness.  While we focus on litigation, we often do our best work in helping our clients avoid expensive and lengthy lawsuits.
