Lubbock Attorney Kevin Glasheen Cleared in Professional Misconduct Hearing
Lubbock attorney, Kevin Glasheen, of Glasheen, Valles and Inderman, was cleared of alleged professional misconduct by a Texas judge earlier today.
Glasheen was accused by two former clients of charging 'illegal and unconscionable' fees during his representation of the men in 2008. State
District Judge Robin Darr this morning stated that the State Bar of Texas failed to prove that Glasheen's fees were excessive.
According to the Associated Press, Glasheen faced punishments ranging from a public reprimand to disbarment. The disciplinary hearing spanned four days.
Glasheen received millions of dollars in compensation from 12 men cleared after DNA evidence showed they were innocent of charges that put some in prison for more than two decades.
Steven Phillips and Patrick Waller filed complaints with the state bar, saying Glasheen's 25 percent contingency fee was too high.
Glasheen maintained his innocence throughout the State Bar of Texas' hearing process. Later today, Glasheen will talk about the accusations made against him during Pratt on Texas at 5:06pm on KFYO.
