 HOUSTON, June 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Schouest, Bamdas, Soshea, BenMaier & Eastham PLLC (SBSB Eastham) announced today that it is joining forces with The Bale Law Firm, an alliance that will combine Bale Law's decades of courtroom experience representing national and international business clients with SBSB Eastham's highly respected Maritime, Catastrophic Claims, Longshore, Defense Base Act, and Insurance Defense practices.

"Jeff Bale and his team of lawyers have the impeccable reputation of providing outstanding representation with proven results for their clients," said SBSB Founder and Managing Partner John Schouest. "By joining forces, we can afford our clients access to additional talent and a depth of expertise they can't find anywhere else. It really is just a perfect fit."

"We are also pleased to welcome Jeff's son, Ross Bale – the next generation of quality Bale trial lawyers – along with attorney Nolan Wleczyk."

This union comes just four months after SBSB merged with Eastham, Watson, Dale & Forney, LLP to create legal powerhouse SBSB Eastham.
