You could take your talents anywhere. We know that. You know that.

We take our clients seriously and fight against big insurance companies trying to screw them over. We are aggressive advocates. We will exhaust every option, every avenue, to get our clients what they deserve. Just look back at our successful history of thousands of clients who we’ve built relationships with to see the proof.

Across our six office locations dispersed through central and east Texas, you'll find a team who exceed in excellence in their work ethic, enthusiasm, and commitment to our social contract. It's no wonder we have a high retention of team members. But don't just take our word for it. See what our current team members think! 
 “Our work environment and culture is amazing. When working for a company, one of the main things employees look to obtain is appreciation and DS exceeds that need extremely. So I love being apart of this firm and I would refer DS without hesitation.” 
“I love working with individuals who are all fighting for a common goal. Everyone is so welcoming and kind. They genuinely want to get to know you! That's a great feeling to have at your place of work.”

Be Remarkable 
If we go above and beyond for our clients and team, they will do the same for you. We want people remarking about the work we do, and the high level of quality provided. That is how we know we are giving our 100% - not the bare minimum. 
We appreciate those that do remarkable work. We believe everyone should take time to recognize the hard work of those around you! It has a huge impact on the health and positivity of our team. 
 Do It All, Do It Right, Do It Now 
Get s**t done! The right way, the first time, when it needs to happen. 'Nuff said. 
 Arms Out, Thumbs Out
