DALLAS –(February 6, 2012) –The national law firm of Baron and Budd has launched a new firm website at //baronandbudd.com.

Most importantly, the new site continues the firm’s mission to educate consumers about their legal rights.

“Baron and Budd has been increasingly involved over the past few years in litigation designed to protect consumers from deceptive practices and the firm’s website needed to reflect that,” said Russell Budd, president and managing shareholder of Baron and Budd. “The new website mirrors who we are today and how we stand ready to help people who have been harmed. We feel that there is a significant need for more information online about the civil justice system and its importance to the consumer. We hope that people find this new website informative.”
