Houston is home to many legal firms that cover everything from criminal law, to the oil and gas industry. It's also home to some of the largest law firms not just in the country — but in the world.

Whether you come in contact with these firms or not, the work they do affects your daily life. These areas include immigration, family law and environmental law.

We talk with representatives of three firms in Greater Houston: George Wilkinson is partner at Vinson & Elkins, a law firm that specializes in environmental law; Charles Foster is co-chairman of immigration firm FosterQuan; and Stewart Gagnon is senior partner at Fulbright & Jaworski.

*Note: In the interest of full disclosure, FosterQuan and Fulbright & Jaworski are underwriters of programming on News 88.7, while Vinson & Elkins underwrites programming on TV 8. However, this was not a consideration by Houston Matters staff when choosing these guests.
