Claimant Attorney Leslie Causabon Found Not Guilty

On October 31, 2023, a Travis County jury found attorney Leslie Casaubon not guilty of the offenses of Securing Document by Deception and Insurance Fraud. You can view the Jury Verdict here.

DWC announced Ms. Casaubon’s indictment in a News Release issued on March 26, 2021. The indictments alleged that from July 1, 2017 to August 31, 2019, Ms. Casaubon and her staff submitted billing to DWC’s attorney fee processing system for work they did not do.

In January, we reported that attorney Roger Farahmand, who was indicted along with Ms. Casaubon, had entered into a consent order with the Division which required him to testify in Ms. Casaubon’s trial.  The criminal case against Mr. Farahmand was dismissed on December 29, 2022 because “[t]he defendant has been granted immunity in light of his testimony.”  It is not known whether Mr. Farahmand was called to testify in Ms. Casaubon’s trial.    

Claimant attorney Adam Henderson was also indicted at the same time as Ms. Casaubon and Mr. Farahmand for allegedly submitting bills for work he did not do.  The case against Mr. Henderson is still pending. There is a pre-trial hearing currently set in his case for December 21, 2023.
