HOUSTON – A local law firm has been sued for failing to disclose business interests to a Texas man and the estate he is representing, recent Harris County District Court records show.
John Lunstroth, as administrator of the estate of William Stender, filed a lawsuit against Pagel, Davis & Hill in the Harris County 61st District Court on June 4.
The estate hired PDH to represent its interests in a probate proceeding after Stender passed away on June 6, 2016.
According to the original petition, the defendant informed Lunstroth that “Stender had no interest in certain companies” and occasionally “represented that Stender had limited business interests.”
“The plaintiff, however, discovered that Stender in fact did have substantial interest, and in some instances, even 100% interest, in some companies,” the suit says.
Lunstroth further asserts the respondent “made the decision to conceal the value of Stender’s actual business interests.”
Consequently, he seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.
Anthony G. Buzbee of The Buzbee Law Firm in Houston is representing the complainant.
