Defense lawyers in civil law suits in Texas frequently find themselves pulled in opposite directions by the differing interests of their insured clients and the liability insurer clients who pay their bills. These issues are resolved in Texas through the Tilley Doctrine as well as in the ethics rules governing Texas lawyers. Our firm is regularly retained to give advice to lawyers to enable them to navigate through such conflicts by using the ethical requirements existing in Texas. Because of our expertise in Texas insurance law, we have extensive experience in all the legal issues arising out of the Tilley Doctrine. Several of our lawyers have written extensively in this area and speak regularly on this topic. As such, it is not surprising that lawyers and law firms turn to us when they have questions arising out of the tripartite relationship between an insured, a liability carrier, and defense counsel.
