Statewide Texas Unemployment Lawyer


NO FEE unless you WIN at the TWC! Seriously.

I’m Kerry O’Brien, an attorney and a former hearing officer with the Texas Workforce Commission (over 800 hearings as a hearing officer). I help you fight to win your TWC unemployment hearing, regardless of where you are. Since 2008, I have handled hundreds of unemployment hearings for tons of satisfied clients around Texas and even the world. Whether you’re in Dallas, Austin, Houston, El Paso, Brownsville, Amarillo, Beaumont – or anywhere in between – I can help.

We represent claimants on a contingency basis, meaning – WE DON’T EARN A FEE from you unless you WIN your entitlement to benefits in front of the Texas Workforce Commission. This arrangement applies to hearings about whether you’re entitled to benefits based on why you quit or were terminated. That’s probably over 90% of the cases I see. Now, you don’t have to worry about losing money to an attorney if you lose your appeal before the TWC. I am not aware of any other attorney or hearing representative that offers this. All of the others that I am aware of want you to pay them regardless of whether you win or lose. That’s not easy to do when you’re out of work. 

I have also provided a substantial amount of TWC services for small employers around Texas, including basic consultation as well as representation for hearings and tax audits. Different fee arrangements apply.
