Local Appearance Counsel

Appearance Counsel / Local Counsel 

Many law firms and local appearance counsel companies, both in and out of Texas, regularly call on Chris Carnohan because of his 37+ years of litigation experience.  Because his word is his bond, they can safely entrust to him their clients’ welfare when they ask him to appear for motions to retain, scheduling conferences, default judgments, summary judgments, trials, and dismissals:

  • Traveling to appear in a Central or West Texas court involves a significant investment of time and money.  Carnohan Law Offices' central location in Abilene allows Chris Carnohan to reach many courthouses for a total cost that is often less than an attorney’s travel expenses alone.  Meanwhile, countless non-productive hours are saved from road trips or in airports.

  • Since opening in 1986, Carnohan Law has filed suit and taken judgments in thousands of litigation cases across the State of Texas.  His dedication and concern for those he serves enable Chris Carnohan to address special needs and concerns that may arise when a distant attorney is retained in Central or West Texas.

  • With almost four decades of successful litigation experience, Chris both knows and understands the law. He follows the directions of those who retain him, or if desired, he applies his legal knowledge on a case by case basis to focus on appropriate strategies and persuasive arguments to achieve the goals set by a law firm or distant client.

  • Experience has taught him what succeeds in court and equally important: what doesn’t.

Rest assured I always do my utmost to represent your client as you would.  It is always a distinct honor to appear for you in the counties and cities listed below: -Chris Carnohan
