Local Appearance Counsel

Appearance Counsel / Local Counselfirsttaylor

Many law firms and attorneys, both in and out of Texas, regularly call on Chris Carnohan because of his 33+ years of litigation experience.  They entrust to him their clients’ welfare when they ask him to appear on their behalf or with them for motions to retain, scheduling conferences, default judgments, summary judgments, and trials for a wide variety of practical reasons:

  • Traveling to make an appearance in Central or West Texas represents a significant investment of time and money.  Carnohan Law Offices' location in Abilene allows Chris Carnohan to reach many courthouses for a total cost usually less than just their travel expenses.  Meanwhile, you save countless non-productive hours on the road or in airports.

  • Since opening in 1986, Carnohan Law has filed and taken judgments in thousands of litigation cases across the State of Texas.  That experience means we strive to understand and address the special needs and concerns that may arise when you hire an attorney to appear for you in Central or West Texas.

  • With over thirty years of successful litigation experience, Chris both knows and understands the law.  Applying that knowledge on a case by case basis, he can apply appropriate strategies and persuasive arguments to assist in reaching the goals set by your law firm and 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
