The appellant, a law firm, seeks to set aside an order denying its motion to compel arbitration. Given the relationship between attorney and client, the relative expertise of lawyers in understanding the differences between arbitration and litigation and the relative costs thereof as compared to their clients, the arbitration agreement here, that allegedly specifically excepts claims protecting the firm's fees and costs, is unconscionable. The trial court's order is affirmed. Royston, Rayzor, Vickery & Williams, L.L.P. v. Lopez, Corpus Christi Court of Appeals, No. 13-12-00757-CV, 06-27-2013.
