When representing clients, our lawyers assist in filing administrative protests, handling administrative appeals, and pursuing litigation when necessary.
Local Presence & Experience
V&E’s credibility with appraisal districts across
the state, including the Harris County Appraisal District, is the result of our having built a solid reputation in handling administrative and judicial
appeals. When it becomes necessary to protest an appraisal value, we
collaborate with qualified appraisal firms who provide extensively researched
reports based on financial analyses, market information, and other factors
impacting the property. And while we have the experience and capabilities to
generally resolve protests administratively before the appraisal districts and
appraisal review boards, V&E’s Litigation team is equipped to escalate
appraisal appeals to trial when necessary.
Beyond providing comprehensive property tax-disputes services, V&E’s Tax team has received recognition for setting
precedents on best-use appraisal methodologies for commercial and industrial
properties. This depth and breadth of experience enhances our ability to offer
streamlined advice when representing clients on all aspects of property tax
