Visitors to this website must ask to have results sent to you. The court verdicts and settlements we have obtained for our clients are significant, and we would love to share them with you. To receive a list of these successes, please click here and provide us with your mailing address.
The publishing of results obtained by JohnstonTobey, P.C., and other Texas law firms is severely restricted by Comment #4 to Rule 7.02 of the Texas Disciplinary Rules of Professional Conduct. These rules state that advertising which even accurately reports a lawyer’s achievements on behalf of former clients “may be misleading if presented so as to lead a reasonable person to form an unjustified expectation” of similar results.
We believe prospective clients are entitled to information on a lawyer’s past successes and that they are fully capable of evaluating these results and their relationship to the situation at hand. The State Bar of Texas, however, disagrees and has made it virtually impossible to ethically advertise past successes, especially on a website.
Many lawyers choose to ignore the directions of the State Bar or engage in a creative interpretation of this rule. We at JohnstonTobey, P.C., have decided to comply with the directions of the State Bar, notwithstanding our disagreement with the rule, and do not post the specific result of any case.
We are proud to discuss our past successes with you in person or, if you prefer, we will mail you information about our past successes in response to your request.
If you would like such information, please provide your contact information and our results will be forwarded to you.
