Working behind the scenes to make a difference
Linebarger Goggan Blair & Sampson, LLP, is a law firm that thinks big — but not in the way you might expect.
Since 1976, the firm has provided customized collection programs for the public sector. In other words, they help local governments nationwide collect on delinquent accounts, including taxes, traffic citations, court fines and tolls.
To some, that may create the perception of an uncaring law firm picking on people. But Linebarger doesn’t see it that way — quite the opposite.
Steve Meeks, managing partner, said the firm champions fairness.
“For example, we identify fraudulent and inaccurate homestead exemption claims,” he said.
“By pursuing these cases, we ensure that all homeowners pay their fair share. Collecting this revenue also helps government entities provide essential services and reduces the need for tax hikes.”
The firm also thinks big when it comes to community service. Linebarger Goggan has been recognized for its diversity efforts, and around the country, employees are involved in their local school districts, cities and county projects. In HEB, the firm actively supports the HEB ISD Education Foundation as well as the HEB Chamber.
“We know our collection work provides a valuable service,” Meeks said. “But the firm always want to contribute more. The Chamber is an important part of HEB, and we take pride in our membership. And we believe that supporting education is a great way to make a lasting, positive impact on the community.”
“Whether we are pursuing a delinquency case or supporting a local school, our focus is the same,” Meeks said. “We strive to be fair and help create a stronger community.”
