The Texas Disciplinary Rules of Professional Conduct mandate that all Attorneys in Brownsville TX avoid creating unnecessary costs in litigation.
Rule 3.02 Minimizing the Burdens and Delays of Litigation
In the course of litigation, a lawyer shall not take a position that unreasonably increases the costs or other burdens of the case or that unreasonably delays resolution of the matter.
Not all conduct that increases the costs or other burdens of litigation, however, can be justified in this manner. One example of such impermissible conduct is a lawyer who counsels or assists a client in seeking a multiplication of the costs or other burdens of litigation as the primary purpose, because the client perceives himself as more readily able to bear those burdens than is the opponent, and so hopes to gain an advantage in resolving the matter unrelated to the merits of the client’s position.
