HOUSTON – Schouest, Bamdas, Soshea, BenMaier & Eastham PLLC (SBSB Eastham) is expanding in Texas. The firm announced today it is opening a new office in Dallas and welcoming six new partners to lead its launch.

The office will allow the firm to grow its already robust team of litigators and expand its depth of services in and around North Texas.

“Dallas is an important city for our firm.
