East Houston


When Houston was founded in 1837, residents roamed on horses and wagons. As a freeway-laced metro area of over 6 million today, Houston is home to millions of cars, SUVs, and trucks — and many, many traffic accidents.

How many? In 2013, Houston had over 58,000 crashes. In those, more than 28,000 people were injured — 7,000 of them seriously — and nearly 200 persons died.

Families of victims need legal help to get payments for their losses, from medical bills to lost wages to pain and suffering. For over 40 years, Jim Adler & Associates has fought for such victims’ rights in the legal area — and we can fight for you too.

Two Offices In Houston: Galleria and Channelview

In Houston we work from two offices: the law firm’s home office on West Loop 610 in the Uptown/Galleria area, and its Channelview office just off Interstate 10 (I-10) on the city’s east side.

There you’ll find the help you need not only for car accident cases, but also injuries involving defective drugs and medical devices, as well as workplace injuries. The Adler law firm also helps Americans needing Social Security disability payments.

As for traffic accidents, many involve 18-wheelers, also called big rigs, semi trucks, tractor trailers or diesel trucks. Such 18-wheeler accidents can be catastrophic, often severely injuring if not killing the occupants of far smaller cars.

Though many state traffic laws are the same from city to city, each city also has its own laws governing traffic, such as varied speed limits depending on the thoroughfare.

For instance, Houston has no law yet to ban using cellphones while driving, or even texting while driving. But some suburbs and nearby cities ban texting while driving, including Bellaire, West University Place, Missouri City, Conroe and Galveston.

Houston stands out in many other ways, though. Home to many oil companies and refineries, it is the Energy Capital of the World. It’s also home to the Johnson Space Center and NASA’s Mission Control, as well as the Texas Medical Center — the world’s largest — and Port of Houston, the nation’s busiest in terms of foreign tonnage and second-busiest overall.

Though some older landmarks have fallen, others remain, including — for the time being — the world’s first domed stadium, the Astrodome. And in honor of its hometown president, “Bush 41,” Houston’s biggest airport (exceeding Hobby Airport) is named George Bush Intercontinental Airport.

I went to the office and everyone was so considerate and professional , so my first impression was good, I felt like I was in good hands. Then I received a call from Vanessa Garcia, she was on top of EVERYTHING! I never had to call her, she always called me. She even called to see how I was doing , and if I needed help with anything. That is why I have absolutely no worries.read more

I was dropped from a previous law firm regarding my case before I called Jim Adler. They immediately took up my case and worked hard on it - I was always up to date with each step they took and the benefits or consequences of each. In the end, I am highly satisfied with the outcome and would not have it any other way. It took some time but I truly appreciate and want to thank everybody who helped me on this journey and worked tirelessly on it.read more

I am a Patrol Deputy for the Sheriff Office and while working one night, a drunk driver crossed the center stripe on the highway and struck my patrol vehicle head on with his pick up truck. Needless to say we (the drunk driver and I) were both lucky to survive, as the accident occurred at highway speeds. Following my release from the hospital, I knew that I would need to have someone represent me. My employer was happy to represent me in regards to prosecuting the driver for criminal charges but, can do little in respect to the recovery of financial losses for medical bills, pain and discomfort, time lost from work etc... This is how my relationship with Jim Adler and Associates began. Yep, you probably guessed correctly when you think of what made me choose the "Texas Hammer" to represent me. Those half obnoxious, half way entertaining commercials and radio announcements most Texans have been seeing and hearing on the TV and radio for years instantly came to mind. Yes, I wanted to "hammer" this S.O.B. for trying to kill me but, more importantly I was worried about the costs associated with the life long injuries I had sustained as a result of this drunk driver's negligent behavior. I contacted Jim Adler and Associates and so began our relationship. I was immediately surprised by the prompt attention and the expression of genuine concern for my well being that I received from the employees of Jim Adler's office. Now as you can imagine, lawyers are not a breed that is held in very high regard by people in my profession but, my experiences with Jim Adler's office and his employees have forced me to amend my way of thinking, at least on the civil side of the house anyway. I have to chuckle when I say that because my experience as a client of Jim Adler's firm has been exceptionally pleasant. So before I venture down one of the stereotypical and infinite number of rabbit holes associated with the relationship between members of law enforcement and lawyers; I will do my best to stay focused on my experience with Jim Adler & Associates. Upon being informed that my case had been accepted by Jim Adler's office; I was contacted by Iris Sanchez who informed me that she was to be my case manager and any questions, comments and concerns could be directed to her. I was pleasantly surprised to receive regular calls from Iris assisting with my medical appointments and future follow up appointments. Iris had informed me that Jim Adler's son, Bill Adler would be handling my case and I was even more surprised to receive several calls from Bill to discuss my case. Now you might be thinking "what's the big deal" with the person who is representing you contacting you? In reality, you are correct in that it isn't a big deal but, what is noteworthy and what separates Jim Adler's Office from the multitude of other lawyers is the genuine expressions of concern and the desire Bill Adler conveyed to me to do their best to help me. I felt an immediate connection and instantly realized I had made the correct choice in contacting Jim Adler & Associates to handle my case. One thing I think lawyers and police officers can agree on is the proverbial wheels of justice turn very slowly. Months go by and our professional relationship is never neglected. Through the unwavering attention of Iris Sanchez and Bill Adler himself, I never felt "out of the loop" so to speak and always had a clear understanding of where my case was at in regards to the legal process. In conclusion, I know my brief description of my experiences with Bill Adler and, his assistant Iris Sanchez, cannot provide the credit they deserve. Together they have done an outstanding job representing their firm/employer. If you are seeking a great firm to represent your legal interests and, take comfort in establishing a professional relationship that feels more like a friendship than a casual business acquaintance, then I highly suggest Jim Adler & Associates.read more

I am very happy with Jim Adler & Associates. I did not know anyone who has ever used the Law Firm before. The staff is very friendly and treated me as if I were family. At times it got very stressful being without a job. They helped me when I was confused about the process. Mrs. Theresa Rodriguez stayed in contact with me constantly. Checking on me to see how I was doing and to let me know how things were going on there end. The Attorneys that handled my case know exactly what they are doing to take good care of me. Thank You so much Attorney's Mr.Michael Gomez and Mr.Trey Smith.read more
