Successful trial work requires a strong work ethic, agility, and the ability to tackle tough problems head-on with clear eyes and creativity. I developed these skills and values while growing up on my family’s century-year-old ranch, and they continue to define my practice to this day. When a long day of working outdoors ends, the time for storytelling begins. Trial work demands a powerful sense of story—of helping the jury put themselves in my client’s shoes. When I walk into a courtroom as a passionate advocate, know that hard work and storytelling are in my blood.
Lance Currie is a construction and real estate lawyer—building on lessons he learned working for his father, who is a home builder and developer. Board certified in construction law (as only a limited number of lawyers in Texas are), he helps developers, owners, and contractors solve problems and resolve disputes. With the aim of keeping projects moving, Lance regularly applies finesse and ingenuity to repair projects and relationships. But, when opposing parties don’t share that same goal, he is a fierce advocate for his client’s interests.
Lance also has a significant securities practice, advising clients on raising funds for projects and managing investments, along with representing broker-dealers and registered representatives in the broader securities industry. By taking numerous construction and securities disputes to arbitration or trial, he has the litigation experience to identify problems with capital raises and other investor issues before they arise and the practical experience to help clients navigate and avoid those problems.
Lance also represents clients in the oil and gas, real estate, healthcare, transportation, and telecommunications industries on commercial litigation matters.
Committed to building lasting relationships and strengthening his community, Lance serves on multiple boards, is a very active member of the Dallas Regional Chamber, and was recently recognized as a 40 Under 40 award winner by the Dallas Business Journal for his business and community efforts.
