The disciplinary arm of the State Bar of Texas is moving forward to seek the disbarment of a state representative who was convicted in 2015 and served jail time in 2018 for five Class A misdemeanor barratry charges.
Rep. Ron Reynolds, D-Missouri City, saw his criminal problems start in 2013 when he was indicted for felony barratry, which is the illegal solicitation of legal clients. His indictment alleged that he improperly solicited personal injury legal clients by paying a nonlawyer to contact car accident victims through police reports. He pleaded not guilty and denied knowledge that the case runner solicited clients for him.
