The Firm

Founded in 2003 in Austin, Texas, we’re committed to excellence in representing employers.

Our lawyers, who have had distinguished careers with prominent national labor and employment law firms, pride themselves on having exceptional analytical skills and judgment, excellent oral and written expression and keen business sense.

Cornell Smith Mierl & Brutocao was formed by a group of experienced labor and employment lawyers who had practiced for years at large national firms. They joined together to form what has become the largest labor and employment law firm based in Austin, Texas. In a more focused boutique environment, Cornell Smith Mierl & Brutocao continues to provide excellent specialized legal representation, but with even greater cost effectiveness.

As attorneys committed to the finest legal representation available, each of our attorneys adapts to the clients’ individual needs — whether that means defending a discrimination, retaliation, or wrongful discharge lawsuit, advising on day-to-day questions that arise under employment laws such as the Americans with Disabilities Act or Family & Medical Leave Act, or providing discrimination and sexual harassment training.

Cornell Smith Mierl & Brutocao’s depth of legal experience combined with a practical business approach to employment law issues has earned the loyalty of our clients.
