About Evan B. Lange, Attorney at Law

Summary:

Before opening my own practice, I worked at a prestigious Dallas-based labor and employment law firm. There, I handled scores of cases representing employees. At this law firm, I also represented the firm’s legacy estate planning clients. In May 2018, I returned to my native Houston to open my own practice.

Litigation Experience:

In Dallas, I worked for a law firm that primarily practiced employment law. I prosecuted cases as a lead attorney against Fortune 500 companies such as Marriott, Southwest Airlines, and Wal-Mart, and against governmental entities, including the Federal Government. I have represented a wide range of clients, from workers seeking a reasonable accommodation to workers who tried to improve working conditions for themselves and co-workers.

Estate Planning:

I have represented individuals, couples, couples with children, and clients with special needs children in their estate planning matters. Among others, I have drafted powers of attorney, medical powers of attorney, living wills, trusts, and last wills and testaments for clients. In my representation of estate planning clients, I work with the clients to understand their goals. I explain the documents, their effects, and help devise a strategy that will accomplish that goal.

Education & Background:

I graduated from Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law with honors, cum laude. I earned my B.A. in International Studies from Texas A&M University, graduating summa cum laude. While at Texas A&M, I studied abroad in Salzburg, Austria where I perfected my German. During and after law school, I taught myself Spanish and Portuguese.


Continuing my education, I received the Deans Scholarship and attended the Southern Methodist University - Dedman School of Law. There, I studied employment law, employment discrimination, business entities, and estate planning among other subjects. While in law school, I made the dean's list and graduated with honors, cum laude.


After graduating and passing the Texas bar, I started my own small practice where I handled both civil and criminal matters in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. While operating my own firm, I also worked as an independent contractor for a solo practitioner who practiced personal injury. After about six months of my own practice, I joined the employment litigation firm where I worked for years.
