Corpus Christi attorney sentenced for barratry

A Corpus Christi attorney was sentenced this week to three years in prison after a jury found him guilty of barratry. A former employee of the attorney, who also faced barratry charges, took a plea deal with the Texas Attorney General’s Office and was given probation.

As part of the plea deal, the employee was stripped of his law license, sentenced to ten years of deferred probation, and fined $6,000.

According to The Caller, the men approached relatives of a victim of a deadly car crash to offer their legal services. They were able to convince the family to hire them, a violation of the Texas Penal Code.

If you are an attorney and are looking for help to be reinstated to the State Bar of Texas, contact the professional license defense attorneys of the Leichter Law Firm PC at 512.495.9995.
