About Us

Attorneys Robert A. Schulman, Ricardo R. Lopez and Joseph E. Hoffer established Schulman, Lopez & Hoffer, LLP, in 2011 after practicing together for many years with another prominent Texas education law firm. In 2015, Jason Adelstein merged his real estate and natural resources practice with the firm and it became Schulman, Lopez, Hoffer & Adelstein, LLP. Together our attorneys have over 100 years of experience serving Texas and Louisiana school districts, charter schools, local government entities, and private commercial clients. We are proud of our ability to provide our clients with responsive, service driven legal advice.

One of our hallmarks is our accessibility. Our clients have unparalleled access to all of our attorneys no matter when or where needed. The way we implement our representation sets us apart. We work closely with each client providing one-on-one individualized attention that is responsive to client needs and we design a relationship from the start that utilizes all of our resources as efficiently and productively as possible. 

Our attorneys are often recruited to speak at national, state, regional and local conferences including by the National School Board Association, the National Alliance of Public Charter School Attorneys, the Education Law Association, the Texas Charter School Association, the Texas Association of School Business Officials, the Texas Association of School Administrators, the University of Texas School Law Conference, the Louisiana Association of Public Charter Schools Conference and others. See our News/Events Page for more details. 

Our successes are not limited to the board room or the conference lectern; we are also aggressive litigators in the federal and state trial courts, courts of appeals and before administrative agencies. We respect the rules of court and procedure and adhere to the highest ethical standards and the Texas Lawyers Creed. Most importantly, our attorneys and staff are down-to-earth and can make often complicated legal matters easy to understand. 

If you are an existing client we thank you for the opportunity to work with and serve you. If you would like to learn more about becoming a client, please contact our office.
