Thank you for visiting our website. Hoch Law Firm, PC is a firm of trial lawyers. The principal attorney, Tim Hoch has been a practicing trial lawyer in Texas and Oklahoma for 30 years. He has been Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization since 2000.
Hoch Law Firm, PC has had the privilege of earning the trust and confidence of people who are facing the most difficult times of their lives. The firm handles cases involving severe injury, property insurance cases and business cases that involve large sums of money.
Our severe injury cases arise from semi-truck wrecks, car wrecks, drunk drivers, defective products, oil rig explosions, nursing home abuse, construction accidents and sexual assault.
Our commercial property insurance cases arise from storm, hail, wind, tornado and fire events. We investigate your loss thoroughly, hire the best experts and leave no stone unturned. We have even been able to achieve results where other lawyers have given up.
Our business cases involve disputes between partners and corporate shareholders, business ownership fights, breaches of fiduciary duties, corporate malfeasance, attorney malpractice and large collection matters.
Since we handle only large cases, we concentrate on a few cases at a time. We strongly believe in personal service and responsiveness. We involve our clients every step of the way. We adhere, at all times, to the highest ethical standards. Our goal is to achieve the best results for our clients in the shortest time possible. We are aggressive and relentless. When we are working on your case you will have our undivided attention. You will even have Tim Hoch’s cell phone number.
As trial lawyers, we try cases. While this may sound obvious, there are a number of supposed trial lawyers who have never seen the inside of a court room. Insurance companies know which lawyers try cases. The ability to achieve the best result depends on whether the lawyer you choose knows how to try a case.
Since our clients have already suffered a heavy loss, we are paid a contingent fee. This means that we only earn our fee if we recover money on your behalf. In other words, we do NOT get paid unless and until you get paid. We also advance all costs of litigation so there is no risk to you.
We respect the privacy of our clients. We are happy to discuss our successes and results on a confidential basis.
Having handled difficult and contentious cases across Texas and Oklahoma, we have made many enemies. But we have also earned the respect of attorneys and judges alike. We are happy to provide you with referrals on a confidential basis.Practice Areas
I handle cases in State and Federal Court that involve life changing circumstances and large sums of money.
Here are a few areas and examples.
Truck wrecks: The physical and emotional toll from a truck wreck is devastating. If you are involved in a collision with an 18-wheeler, there are usually life threatening injuries or death. There are so many issues to work through. For example, how will you pay for your medical expenses? How will you afford to live? How can you face the future? A lawyer who understands your circumstances can help you face an uncertain future with resolve to get you the financial settlement you need.
Drunk drivers: We represent victims of the worst kind of scourge on our roads and highways-drunk drivers. These senseless acts result in tragic consequences. A beautiful mom sits at a traffic light while a drunk in a Tahoe barrels into her. She never knew what hit her. A family of four gets slammed head-on by a wrong-way driver. An innocent toddler is ejected from her family's SUV when the impact from a drunk driver's pick-up hits them from behind. When you are left to pick up the pieces from a drunk driver's criminal act, we are here to help.
Oil rig explosions: Oil & gas drilling rigs, refineries and plants are among the most dangerous places to work. Any false move can result in a catastrophe. Serious burns, broken bones, loss of limbs, internal injuries and death can occur in an instant. We hire the most experienced accident investigators to determine what happened and hold the responsible parties accountable. Even if you have workers compensation, there may be another person or company responsible for the incident. We also hire life care planners to assess your long term medical needs and get you the money you need to face your future.
Nursing home injuries: These types of cases take experience and resources to pursue. Texas statutes require expert witness support before a case can even be filed. This is not easy. Oftentimes there are no witnesses to abuse or neglect. Other times it may difficult to discern whether an injury was caused by neglect or some other medical condition. Thorough investigations are required.
Sex abuse: The emotional trauma caused by sexual abuse can have lifelong effects. Part of the rehabilitation process can involve confronting and holding responsible the person who perpetrated the abuse as well as the institution that may have looked the other way. The brave victim of abuse deserves a lawyer who will stand beside them through the tough task of putting their life back together.
Commercial property insurance: We have handled hundreds of property insurance claims. Texas property insurers have been hit with a large number of hail and storm claims the past few years. They enjoy taking your premiums but they aren't as hospitable when you make a claim. Property insurance adjusters look for ways to minimize your claim. For example, they will blame the damage on "wear and tear" or improper maintenance. Or they will try to state that the damage was caused by a storm outside the policy period. The latest defense is the cosmetic exclusion. Property insurance companies notoriously low-ball their policyholders by only agreeing to pay to patch and repair a roof when a full replacement is warranted. If you own an apartment complex, retail center, office building, warehouse, grocery store, restaurant, manufacturing facility or any other commercial building and you need assistance with your insurance claim, we are here to help.Business cases
Business ownership disputes: A business break-up can be as painful as real divorce. When partners pour their heart and soul into a venture they never imagine the day would come that jeopardizes that dream. We have helped numerous business owners and partners disentangle themselves from bad deals, bad decisions and bad partners.
Collection cases: Are you owed money? We help large and small companies collect money on accounts receivable, judgments and contracts. We are skilled and efficient at the process and understand the tricks used by debtors to avoid bills. If you have a collection case, call us as soon as possible. In this circumstance, time is money.

Tim Hoch is a trial lawyer with over 25 years of experience. He is Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and practices exclusively in the area of civil litigation where he represents business owners, property owners, lenders, investors, borrowers and fiduciaries.
Tim represented us in a dispute with our insurance company over roof damage due to a hail storm in the Dallas area. We were very disheartened by the constant denials and dishonest treatment we were receiving from the insurance carrier, and Tim counseled us to remain patient while he systematically put together expert opinions and facts that supported our claim. Eventually we were able to settle our case and had the roof replaced on our apartment building just two months before the big tornado hit in late 2015. Our investment property was the only one in the area that did not sustain any roof damage! We were lucky with our timing, but we were even more fortunate to have Tim on our side. We highly recommend Tim's firm!
In short order, he was able to quickly understand and master the details of our case and map out a very cost-effective, efficient legal strategy. After a series of quick wins in court, our opponent came to the table with a highly satisfactory settlement. Mr. Hoch’s ability to effectively tell a persuasive story within the confines of a courtroom is without equal.
Tim’s knowledge and insight regarding not just the law, but business and human nature in general was greatly appreciated and relied upon as we navigated through a difficult situation. Tim has my utmost admiration and respect both on a personal and professional basis.
We use Tim Hoch to handle complex business litigation matters on a variety of topics. He combines a strategic, no-frills approach with a bottom-line mindset. He is extremely responsive, organized and thorough. We would gladly recommend his services.
