Reaud Morgan Quinn sues competing law firm for seeking a cut of the action

By David Yates | Mar 12, 2019


BEAUMONT – Reaud Morgan and Quinn, one of the area’s most well-known law firms, is suing a Houston law firm for seeking a cut of a settlement in a case that it claims was mostly handled by RMQ attorneys.

Seeking declaratory relief, Reaud Morgan and Quinn filed suit against Daniel, Williams & Associates on Feb. 20 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the lawsuit, RMQ performed “substantial” work for a client who, shortly before trial, discharged the firm and retained Daniel, Williams & Associates, which then settled the case.

Thereafter, RMQ asserted its contingency fee interest and Daniel, Williams & Associates claimed entitlement to a portion of the attorney’s fees and costs.

RMQ maintains that it was “discharged without good cause” and that Daniel, Williams & Associates is not entitled to any part of the attorney’s fees.

The amount of money in controversy is less than $100,000, according to the suit.

Glen Morgan, a partner at RMQ, is representing his firm.

Judge Mitch Templeton, 172nd District Court, has been assigned to the case.

Case No. E-203382
