A Houston attorney’s long-running legal battle with a former client over attorney fees has increased the $30,000 originally in dispute to more than $300,000 — and there’s no end in sight for the litigation.

On Sept. 7, Houston’s 1st Court of Appeals issued opinions in two related appeals in Haden, et al. v. Sacks. In the opinions, a unanimous three-justice panel of the appeals court affirmed Harris County Court-at-Law No. 2 Judge Gary Michael Block’s judgments that awarded $241,298, plus interest, to the Sacks Law Firm in Houston and its president, David J. Sacks, in their efforts to get former clients Charles McIntyre Haden Jr. and his business — Haden & Co. — to pay the balance on their legal bill.
