HOUSTON – Houston attorney Todd Mensing, a partner in the complex commercial litigation law firm of Ahmad, Zavitsanos, Anaipakos, Alavi & Mensing P.C., , successfully represented a local dentist in a medical malpractice lawsuit after jurors found that it was actually the woman who filed the suit who was negligent.
Mr. Mensing represented a Texas Smile Dental dentist accused of negligence in treating a child patient. The jury in Harris County State District Judge Reece Rondon’s 234th District Court found that the mother who brought the suit on behalf of her child was negligent, and not the dentist. The jury deliberated for approximately 45 minutes following the three-day trial.
“We are very pleased to be able to reach this fair result for our client,” says Mr. Mensing, who tried the case alongside Joel Sprott of the Houston law firm Sprott, Rigby, Newsom, Robbins & Lunceford, P.C.
