About Us

The Evans Law Firm was founded in September of 2011 by Chip Evans. Chip had previously been a partner in Fisher & Evans, L.L.P. and Evans Edwards, L.L.P., two prominent Austin personal injury law firms. Chip’s practice has focused almost solely on personal injury cases since 1998.

Austin Personal Injury Lawyer

The firm was founded on the idea that while the firm has many cases, each client has only one case and needs to feel like theirs is a priority. Selecting a lawyer is no small choice. Our firm recognizes this and appreciates the trust our clients place in us when hiring our firm. Personal attention and advice are given to clients through direct contact with the lawyers in our firm. Clients are kept fully advised of the status of their case at all phases of the process.

The firm has the resources and staff to handle any matter, no matter how complicated or financially rigorous. The firm often handles cases that are referred from other attorneys or on a joint venture basis. Additionally, we regularly serve as local counsel in the central Texas area.
