About This Firm

Gibson Gruenert is well into its second decade providing services to corporate and commercial clients in Texas, Louisiana and the wider Gulf Coast region. We have offices in Lafayette, Louisiana and Houston, Texas. We are primarily business lawyers. Our clients range from Fortune 500 companies to entrepreneurs embarking on their first ventures, doctors and medical practices to individual investors. We represent clients in the manufacturing, construction, healthcare, real estate, banking, oil field services, mid-stream energy, exploration and production, hospitality and industrial services industries, to name but a few. We provide those clients with services including commercial litigation, contract preparation, mergers and acquisitions, real estate, environmental counseling, estate planning, tax planning and business counseling.

The attorneys who started the firm are all rated "AV" by Martindale-Hubbell, the definitive mark of excellence in the legal services industry. The partners all spent substantial time as associates and partners in larger Gulf Coast firms, and offer their clients a level of skill, diligence and detail that might be expected from much larger firms. Paul Gibson and Tom Gruenert formed the firm in order to provide their clients with first class business counseling at prices that were no longer practical in the large firm context. The firm is dedicated to providing its clients with pragmatic, affordable service at a cost that is a fraction of that found in larger firms, and with quality that is second to none.

At Gibson Gruenert we believe that the practice of law is first and foremost a service business. We understand that, at his or her essence, a good lawyer is nothing more than a good problem solver. Our clients' satisfaction with the results of our work is the best possible advertisement for our practice, and we do not hesitate to provide references when requested. We are focused on remaining affordable, and we have been pioneers in the area of alternative fee arrangements in the commercial law context. We appreciate you visiting our website, and we look forward to getting to know you, helping solve your business problems, helping you grow your business for years to come, and building our communities in the process.

About Client Rating
About Peer Rating

Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

Determining a Rating

The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

  • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
  • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
  • 1-2.9 Rated

Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

The Reviewers

Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.


Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

Martindale-Hubbell's role

Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
