Let Us Represent You In a Legal Malpractice Case

Yes, “We Sue Attorneys”

 People often ask why I became a legal malpractice lawyer; and they assume that I must not have many friends in this profession given my willingness to sue my peers. The answer is: I didn’t become an attorney to make friends; I became an attorney to help people. I am willing to sue lawyers because my fiduciary duty is always to my clients, not other lawyers or colleagues in the profession. It may not be the popular thing to do, but it’s the right thing to do. Not all lawyers are bad.


The legal profession has many exceptional lawyers who do great work for their clients. However, sometimes, even great lawyers make mistakes that cause their clients to suffer economic damages. I have no problem suing lawyers who make mistakes because it allows me to help both the lawyer and the client resolve the problem to the client’s satisfaction. Unfortunately, there are also lawyers that do criminal, shady and crooked things in order to line their own pockets.


These types of lawyers give the good lawyers a bad name and candidly do not deserve to be practicing law in the State of Texas. When I hear stories about lawyers stealing money from clients, or cheating their clients in business dealings, it makes my blood boil and I will do what is necessary to help the client fix the problem. If your lawyer has done anything to harm you or your case, give me a call and I will help you resolve the issue. Let me help you fix the problems that were caused by your previous lawyer. In helping you, I not only get to right the wrongs created by some lawyers, but I also get to do my part to help try to restore the integrity of the legal profession by holding lawyers accountable for their actions.

Houston, Texas Attorneys

Collectively, our attorneys have over 50 years of combined experience suing attorneys all over the State of Texas, as well as other states across the country. Contact us if you wish to pursue a claim against your attorney. The following includes some, but not all of the types of cases we can assist you with:

  • Attorney missed deadline(s) or statute of limitations;
  • Attorney charges an unconscionable (i.e. unreasonable) fee;
  • Attorney over bills the client for hourly fees;
  • Failure to disclose conflict of interest;
  • Attorney entered into business dealing(s) with client;
  • General attorney negligence;
  • Your attorney settled your case for less money than it was worth;
  • Your attorney obtained a bad result for you at trial.
Put our experience to work for you if you feel your attorney is misrepresenting you, or not acting in your best interest. Our clients always come first.

Fiduciary Duty

Keep in mind that attorneys owe their clients a “fiduciary duty”. This is the highest duty imposed by law. An attorney must put your interest (the client) ahead of their own. If you think your attorney put their interests ahead of yours and caused you harm, give us a call.

Legal Malpractice Cases Are Not Easy To Prove

Winning a legal malpractice case depends on several factors. First, we must prove that mistakes were made in your case. Then, we must show how your outcome would have been different, had those mistakes been avoided. Of course, each case is different, and there are numerous details involved which can complicate things quickly. Deadlines apply to your case and if you do not timely pursue your claims, you may be forever barred from asserting your claims. This is why you should contact us immediately to discuss your case and how we can help you get the money you deserve.
