In 1981, Canterbury Gooch Surratt Shapiro Stein Gaswirth & Jones, P.C. opened its doors as one of the first boutique construction law firms in Texas under the name Canterbury & Elder, P.C. Since then, we have become one of the leading authorities on construction law and litigation in Texas and across the country.


In addition to the construction industry, we have expanded our expertise to many other practice areas. Our attorneys have closed complicated real estate transactions, navigated complex mergers and acquisitions, guided employers through difficult labor and employment issues, and amassed a number of defense victories in high stakes catastrophic personal injury and property damage lawsuits. 


Whether drafting a contract, preventing a conflict, or winning a dispute, we are successful because we are efficient, effective, and reliable. We are proud of the reputation we have earned since our inception over 35 years ago, and we strive every day, for every client, to be the first call our clients make when they need legal expertise.
