Texas Attorney Held Liable For Co-Counsel’s Theft of Settlement Funds

LAW OFFICE OF OSCAR C. GONZALEZ, INC. v. Sloan, Tex: Court of Appeals, 4th Dist. 2014 – Google Scholar.

This is a Texas case in which the lawyer, Oscar Gonzalez, was held liable when his co-counsel converted a settlement check. The attorney tried to defend on the ground that there was no attorney-client relationship. That defense was properly rejected by the jury where there was a signed engagement letter.
