Congratulations to David Lopez and Leslie Hyman, of Pulman, Cappucio, Pullen, Benson & Jones, LLP, who, along with the help of Peter Kelly, successfully defended their judgment before Houston’s First Court of Appeals. The appeal involved the validity of an abstract of judgment filed under a Hispanic judgment debtor’s maternal surname. David, Leslie, and Peter successfully convinced the court of appeals that the abstract was sufficient to give notice of the judgment to the public. You can read the opinion here.
Congratulations to KD&P partners Peter Kelly, Kirk Pittard, Leighton Durham, and Thad Spalding who were once again named “Super Lawyers” in the Appellate category by Super Lawyers Magazine, a Thomson Reuters publication. Peter Kelly was even more super, being named to the Houston region’s list of Top 100 lawyers overall for the second year in a row.
