                                                                                          Espey & Associates represented a lawyer in a multi million dollar malpractice suit.
                                                                                          A motion for special appearance contesting jurisdiction was denied. This decision
                                                                                          was appealed to the Houston Court of Appeals, where the trial judge’s order was reversed.
                                                                                          On February 10, 2015 the Texas Supreme Court denied review, in turn dismissing the case on
                                                                                           jurisdictional grounds.
