Money Launderer Calls Attorney ‘Racehorse’ Haynes, a Fraudster Print E-mail

On Wednesday, attorneys claimed famed Houston lawyer Richard ‘Racehorse’ Haynes committed fraud by attempting to squeeze $3 million out of a client after accepting more than $850,000 in legal fees for a 2004 money-laundering case.

The Houston Chronicle reports that, “Dong Huynh hired Haynes to defend him against criminal charges in federal court. After being convicted in 2008, Huynh hired attorney Matthew Nowak to sue Haynes for breach of contract and fraud. Wednesday was the first day of arguments in the lawsuit against Haynes in the Harris County civil courthouse.”

Attorneys for Haynes and his partners contend that the case against Huynh changed between 2004 and 2008, which had become more complicated and led to higher fees.

John Raley said, “he actually got more legal services than he paid for. And the facts bear that out.”

According to the Houston Chronicle, “Raley said Huynh was originally indicted for laundering $600,000, but a later indictment raised that figure to $2.4 million.”
