Our Firm

The Value of Commitment™

At ScottHulse, we know the value of commitment. A solid, firm-wide commitment to our clients and strong values, including integrity, excellence, and responsiveness, has sustained the ScottHulse tradition of service for more than a century.

Founded in 1889, ScottHulse is one of the leading full-service commercial law firms in the Southwest, with multiple offices staffed by experienced attorneys in El Paso, Texas and Las Cruces, New Mexico. We serve local, regional, national and international clients, who depend on our attorneys’ unique knowledge of and standing in the West Texas, Northern Mexico, and Southern New Mexico Borderplex — one of the most dynamic, high-growth areas in North America.

Diversity in Practices, Industry Experience, and Professional Staff

Consistent with the culturally and economically diverse region we serve, we have built a law firm with diversity in professional staff, practices, and industry experience. The expertise of our El Paso attorneys and Las Cruces lawyers encompasses Corporate, Business and Real Estate law; Trial and Appellate Litigation; Bankruptcy and Creditor’s rights; Labor and Employment law; Government and Education law; Insurance Defense and Healthcare law; Construction; Tax law; International Trade & Cross-Border Business; Intellectual Property; and Estate Planning, Probate & Asset Protection. For a more detailed description of services, visit Practice Areas.

A cross-section of our industry experience includes: healthcare, real estate, construction, insurance, banking and financial services, automotive, manufacturing and maquiladoras (cross-border, twin-plant manufacturing), aerospace/defense/government contracting, transportation, and education. We also advise numerous foundations, charitable organizations, and other tax-exempt organizations who are continually striving to enhance the quality of life in the communities we serve.

As part of our commitment to effective and efficient client service, many of our attorneys are licensed to practice in both Texas and New Mexico. Additionally, many of our attorneys are bi-lingual.

Effective, Efficient, Dual Representation in Both the U.S. and Mexico

Our Mexico Law practice group, which includes attorneys licensed in Mexico, enables us to provide “boots on the ground” representation in Mexico. Dual representation in both the U.S. and Mexico enhances our ability to provide convenient, efficient and effective oversight, coordination, and implementation of U.S./Mexico legal activities for clients, thus easing the challenges of doing cross-border business, including mergers and acquisitions.

While we are proud of ScottHulse’s century-long heritage, we continue to look to the future — a future built around long-term client relationships and a team of professionals with shared values and commitment. And we shall continue to expand our capabilities and maintain flexibility to meet the changing needs of our clients and the Borderplex marketplace. That’s a commitment with value.

''I've been practicing for 50 years and here's what I know: Tell the truth. Die for the client. Give it your all. Do the best that you know how to do in everything. Truth, ethics, and morality are more important than anything.''
