One lawyer has been disbarred and another has received five years probated suspension after the State Bar of Texas disciplined them for failing to keep their clients reasonably informed about the status of their cases, among other violations.
A 62 year-old attorney from Bedford lost her license when, during a divorce case, she gave contrary information than what her client provided to an opposing attorney. She also failed to turn over her client’s papers and property when the woman’s new lawyer requested her file. The attorney had been previously suspended for failing to forward client information and not keeping clients informed on the status of their lawsuits.
Another lawyer, 50, from Fort Worth has been disciplined for not carrying out all the obligations he owed to his client. He is also accused of ignoring a client’s probate matter.
