Local attorney fights back with lawsuit of his own

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Last month, we reported a wrongfully convicted man is suing Lubbock lawyer Kevin Glasheen. The case got a lot of statewide attention because nearly 40 Texas convicts have been proven innocent in recent years by DNA evidence.

Exonerated ex-convict Steven Phillips claims that Glasheen's $1 million fee is too much for securing a $4 million financial settlement with the state. Phillips also claims Glasheen's work was more like lobbying and less like legal representation.

Glasheen is fighting back with a lawsuit of his own claiming that attorney Randall Turner of Hurst, Texas is the one who convinced Phillips to break their deal.
