Real Scumbags Series: Who is Admonished Texas Lawyer Jerry L. Schutza?

Taking Advantage of People Who Don’t Know the Laws re Excess Funds Kept in Texas Court Registry along with Other Real ‘Opportunities’.

 Schemin’ Texas Lawyer Jerry Schutza has Evaded Any Meaningful Discipline since at Least 2004

We don’t want to put too much into this post apart from Houston lawyer Jerry Schutza’s current and past cases with the Commision for Laywer Discipline (State Bar of Texas). But what we can say is we’ll be adding to our series of articles (The Real Scumbags Series) a rolodex of names and Texas Corporations which Schutza and his clients use to funnel millions of dollars in a very lengthy but profitable scheme for both himself and his clients. To date, the Bar has been decades slow to act, but it appears they are aware of increased risk this lawyer is to society. However, the sanctions have not shown that from the referee (Judge assigned to review the cases). LIT hopes that this series will help ensure Schutza is disbarred forever.

A Lawyer should not charge more than a reasonable fee, for excessive cost of legal service would deter laymen from utilizing the legal system in protection of their rights. Furthermore, an excessive charge abuses the professional relationship between lawyer and client.

Commission for Lawyer Discipline Case #3 [5544] Decision Pending (2022)

UPDATE: JULY 1, 2022 | JAN 5, 2023

THIS IS THE MOST ACTIVE CASE IN 2022, NOW THAT JUDGE JEFFERSON MOORE (SPECIALLY ASSIGNED) HAS HAD A CHANGE OF HEART AND GRANTED  SCHUTZA’S RECONSIDERATION OF THE DEFAULT JUDGMENT, BY A NOW SUSPENDED ATTORNEY, ARTURO EURESTE, WHO WAS REPRESENTING JERRY SCHUTZA [YEP, ENOUGH SAID].

AS A RESULT OF THIS FARCICAL JUDICIAL ABOUT-TURN, THE CASE WILL BE DELAYED FURTHER, WITH A TRIAL PENCILED IN FOR 15 NOV., 2022.

IT SHOULD BE NOTED JUDGE MOORE WAS THE REFEREE WHO RECOMMENDED SANCTIONING SCHUTZA IN CASE #1. E.G. WE HAVE THE SAME JUDGE AGAIN, WHO ENDED UP GIVIN’ SCHUTZA A SLAP (PUBLIC REPRIMAND, NOV 24, 2021).

THE CASE WOULD BE DISMISSED BY THE JUDGE DESPITE REQUEST FOR CONTINUANCE BY THE TEXAS BAR AS WITNESS WAS ILL.

ORDER SIGNED COMPELLING DEPOSITION APPEARANCE of AVNI’s (Aug 30)

and

Response to Motion For Summary Judgment by Schutza

and

Subpoena for Depositions issued (Sep 12)

The Avni Case is Ongoing and Has Now Been Referred to the Same Judge in Shutza’s first disciplinary case (not Hon. Crawford as shown below). As at today’s date a default has been entered in favor of the Bar and Shutza’s objected. A hearing is pending re ultimate discipline to be rendered.

200450074 – BROSCH, SUSAN vs. SCHUTZA, JERRY (Court 164)

Another example of the same scheme by Schutza – Brosch was trying to litigate from Germany but that would fall apart and as far as we can see, no Texas Bar complaint was ever filed – or was dismissed by the Bar, if filed.

Brosch would obtain $35k surplus from $95k.

Shutza would keep the remaining $60k for filing a form with the court with Bhagia and according to Brosch, they would split the proceeds.

After protracted legal proceedings, it appears from the docket there was a settlement that Brosch would accept $6k to end the suit, presumably the fees to Christopher D. Nunnallee to represent her and ultimately nonsuit e.g. for her to just walk away from what can only be described as legal theft by Schutza and nonprisoner Bhagia.

Then the case was reopened as Schutza issued a partial payment of $1,500 from his IOLTA account! That was returned to him and he never paid a dime of the $6k according to the updated complaint.

Ultimately the case was dismissed on a ‘take nothing‘ agreement.
