Firm Details

Cornell Smith Mierl Brutocao Burton is an Austin, Texas-based labor and employment boutique committed to excellence in representing employers. Following years practicing at large national firms, the founders formed the firm in 2003, designed to provide their clients with creative solutions to their legal needs, but with even greater cost effectiveness.

In addition to their work in the Lone Star State, two of the firm’s attorneys are licensed to practice in California, and routinely advise and speak on California employment issues, greatly assisting our clients who have employees in both states.

Cornell Smith Mierl & Brutocao attorneys understand that the best legal representation comes from an ability to understand its clients’ business objectives and develop strategic options for clients to meet their needs. The firm strives to deliver client-specific defense in discrimination, retaliation, or wrongful discharge lawsuits; aggressive pursuit of non-compete and trade secret concerns; consultation with clients on questions arising from a broad spectrum of employment laws such as the Americans with Disabilities Act or Family and Medical Leave Act; and providing management with discrimination and sexual harassment training and proactive personnel management techniques.

Cornell Smith Mierl Brutocao Burton’s depth of legal experience, combined with its ability to identify pragmatic solutions, has earned not only the loyalty of its clients, but the reputation to warrant it.
