Experience and Excellence

Over 70 years of combined legal experience. We are each Board Certified in Labor and Employment Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Each of us has been rated a Super Lawyer by Superlawyers.com, a Thomson Reuters service.  Hal Gillespie has been rated as a Super Lawyer for the years 2003 to 2018.  Joseph Gillespie has been rated as a Super Lawyer for the years 2013 to 2018.  Jim Sanford has been rated as a Super Lawyer for the years 2014 to 2018.

Tough and Trial-Tested

We first and foremost are counselors for our clients when workplace concerns and disputes arise. If the situation goes beyond counseling and strategic negotiations, we litigate against employers big and small, across many industries, and in ever-more complex workplaces.


Labor and Employment Lawyers


Each attorney at Gillespie Sanford LLP is well known and well regarded in the legal community.  Our opposing counsel and the Judiciary — who have seen us in action — often trust us to represent their friends and family and have referred many clients to us.  We believe that integrity is critical to the rule of law.

Determined and Hard-Working

We are tenacious advocates with the resolve and capacity to engage skilled, aggressive adversaries. We are selective in whom we represent – valuing quality over quantity – and focus on maximizing results for those we are honored to represent.
