Cindy Saiter prevails on appeal
Cindy Saiter recently obtained a complete victory on appeal, preserving the trial court victory for their client.
Saiter represented an attorney who served as an executor for a probate estate. The beneficiaries of that estate sued the attorney, asserting claims for legal malpractice and breach of fiduciary duties among other things.
In March 2017 Saiter won summary judgment, persuading the trial court that the statute of limitations barred all of the Plaintiffs’ claims. The Plaintiffs appealed. After full briefing, on December 20, 2018 the Houston Court of Appeals for the First District of Texas affirmed the judgment in favor of Saiter’s client in all respcts.
