Like the storied city in which it was founded, Wagstaff LLP is rich in history and tradition. A firm that was started in 1890 with the vision of one young attorney now serves clients throughout the state of Texas and beyond.
In July, 1890, a young Presbyterian college president named John M. Wagstaff moved to Abilene to begin the practice of law. Wagstaff was among the first pioneer lawyers in the young Texas prairie town. Quickly distinguishing himself as a superior trial lawyer in West Texas, he gained statewide recognition from the legal community and was a civic leader for more than a half century.
Today, Wagstaff LLP continues the tradition established over 110 years ago by the pioneering young lawyer - providing clients with superior representation.
Each attorney is committed to helping clients achieve their goals by providing sound advice and creative counsel. The firm aggressively seeks to recruit and retain highly motivated lawyers with exceptional ability and leadership talent. The firm seeks lawyers with a background and feeling for West Texas and its people. Recruiting is conducted on a statewide basis to insure the highest caliber of personnel.
Clients receive the benefit of extensive support systems which include advanced computer and word processing systems, a comprehensive law library and other state-of-the-art advances. A fully trained support staff is a vital ingredient that adds to the efficiency with which services are provided and to the effectiveness of those services.
The attorneys are recognized leaders in civic affairs, as well as in the legal community, and have throughout the firm's history, served in state and local government, the judiciary and state and local bar organizations. Wagstaff LLP is the oldest in Abilene and among the oldest in West Texas. The firm prides itself on offering a wide range of legal services. With its diversity of practice, the firm can meet the needs of its prospective clients.
Wagstaff LLP was among the first investing in the redevelopment of Abilene's central business district with the purchase, expansion and renovation of its downtown offices. In this location, the firm has experienced growth, expanding the scope, range and sophistication of its practice.
