HOUSTON, TX – Top-ranked Texas construction law firm Andrews Myers, P.C. announced that Jeff Lefkowitz, an experienced litigator, is joining the firm as senior counsel and attorneys Mason Hester and David Andrew Van Buskirk are joining as associates.
“Jeff’s in-depth experience in real estate and construction litigation is a great asset to the firm as we expand to meet client needs,” said Eric Cohen, managing partner. “Adding talented young lawyers like Mason and Andy enables us to continue our culture of service while we build for the future.”
Most recently a shareholder at one of the largest business law firms in the Southwest, Lefkowitz brings 25 years of experience and extensive knowledge in handling a wide range of business disputes emphasizing real estate, lease, construction, structured settlement, municipal and contract litigation.

He is also a mediator specializing in real estate and other business disputes.
