Texas attorney Cagney McCormick received a letter from Philip Galyen to provide a client file. It was determined a former Bailey & Galyen attorney had fraudulently filed legal papers without the client’s consent. It was also found a Bailey and Galyen attorney, Thomas Fredrick Jones , had destroyed records after he was on notice of a federal investigation. An expert stated Bailey & Galyen attorney had fraudulent filed papers. See here for report, at Page 7, “In my opinion [Client] attorney did not exercise a reasonable standard of care in filing a Second Bankruptcy Case without [Client’s] consent and signature. Indeed, in my opinion such conduct is fraudulent.”
It was also determined that Houston attorney Thomas Fredrick Jones aka Fred Jones , had destroyed files that was not only against the law, but also against law firm policy. See email confirming this here. TX Rule 1.15(d), states in part, “Upon termination of representation, a lawyer shall take steps to the extent reasonably practicable to protect a client’s interests.. surrendering papers and property to which the client…” Bailey & Galyen is at best a shady, unethical, bankruptcy mill, who allows attorneys to fraudulent create records, destroy evidence, and now under the direction of Philip Galyen and Cagney McCormick continue to hide the remaining client records from the client when they are in fact obligated to produce the original file.
Cagney McCormick was repeatedly asked to provide the client file to the client so the fraudulent conduct of Bailey_and_Galyen could be used in court. In stead of providing the client file to the client which is clearly required by law to do, Cagney McCormick decided to conceal the fraud of the Bailey & Galyen law firm and refused to provide the file.
