Didn’t Get Paid A Commission? Texas Has A Law For That!

Businesses often treat independent sales reps and contractors as the last bill to be paid at the end of the month. Too often, contractors are expected to meet tight deadlines and quality demands, but must struggle to get paid on time. The good news is that Texas has a law against cheating contractors out of their fair pay.

Win Three Times The Amount Of Money You Are Owed For Unpaid Commissions

By Texas labor law statute, you may be able to treble (triple) the amount of money you are owed if the courts determine that the business has deliberately withheld your commissions or reduced the amount of money you are owed.

If you are an independent contractor or sales representative in Central Texas, I can help. I am attorney Jon Michael Smith and have over 30 years of legal experience resolving disputes for business owners and individuals in Austin and throughout Central Texas. I am also board certified and AV Preeminent peer-review rated.*

What Does It Mean To Be A Texas Board-Certified And AV Preeminent Rated Lawyer?

Earning board certification from the Texas Board of Legal Specialization means I am a specialist in the area of consumer and commercial law. It also means the State Bar of Texas has placed the highest confidence in my abilities and knowledge in my area of specialty.

I have also been awarded the AV Preeminent rating, the highest rating, among my legal peers for offering the highest level of knowledge, service and integrity.
