David Fowler Johnson, of Winstead PC, has made available for download his article, “Court Dismissed Appeal By Pro Se Individual Who Could Not Represent An Estate,” published on Winstead’s website. The article begins as follows:
In Kankonde v. Mankan, an attorney appealed the entry of an arbitration award on behalf of his clients, a doctor and his practice. No. 08-20-00052-CV, 2020 Tex. App. LEXIS 7040 (Tex. App.—El Paso August 31, 2020, no pet. history). The attorney then withdrew, and the wife of deceased doctor then filed an appellant’s brief. After providing time to obtain counsel, the court of appeals struck the brief and dismissed the appeal because a non-attorney could not represent an estate.
