As discussed in last month’s newsletter, attorneys’ fees are a hot topic of discussion in the Texas workers’ compensation system. With the recent indictment of a claimant’s attorney alleging fraudulent billing, as well as the revelations of some incredibly high hourly billers in the system, the Division is now weighing in on the issue. Tim Riley, Deputy Commissioner for Compliance and Investigations, issued a July 11 memo to remind attorneys of the Division’s requirements for submitting fee applications as well as the Division’s right to enforce compliance. Deputy Commissioner Riley specifically warns attorneys that approval of an application for attorney’s fees does not foreclose the possibility of an enforcement action related to the application.

The full memo is available on the TDI Website.
