A Texas lawsuit alleging “unconscionable conduct,” including overbilling and negligence by a Philadelphia partner of Maryland-based Offit Kurman, is now in federal court in Houston, where the plaintiffs are seeking more than $1 million in damages.

Houston online retailer LuxeYard and its owner Amir Mireskandari alleged in their petition, originally filed in state district court in Houston on April 13, that Offit Kurman and partner Frank Noyes not only overbilled them for work while defending them in underlying litigation, but  mishandled the litigation, which resulted in them having to pay $450,000 in settlements in other lawsuits.
