HOUSTON – The Tammy Tran Law Firm has been hit with a lawsuit alleging the firm borrowed millions from a client to help fund its law practice, which includes the firm’s BP docket.
Alleging fraud and breach of contract, Cong Pham filed the suit April 9 in Harris County District Court.
According to the lawsuit, Pham and Tran had an attorney-client relationship for several years, during which Tran and her firm used their position of authority to take advantage of Pham.
Pham loaned a total of $4 million to fund their law practice, including the firm’s BP Docket, the suit alleges.
The suit also states that when Pham reminded Tran she had an outstanding balance of more than $2 million, she filed a lawsuit against him in Fort Bend County.
Pham asserts Fort Bend is an improper venue and accuses Tran of forum shopping.
Pham is suing for the total unpaid amount to him, plus interest and court costs.
He is also suing for exemplary damages.
Attorney Ross Sears II of Sears & Crawford represents him.
Case No. 2019-25144
