This is a legal malpractice case. F.W. Industries, Inc., sued its former lawyer, Stewart McKeehan. McKeehan represented F.W. in a state court collection suit against Permian Producers, Inc. While the collection suit was pending, Permian filed for bankruptcy. Later, the state court dismissed F.W.s collection suit against Permian for want of prosecution. F.W. brought this action, alleging that McKeehan committed negligence during his representation of it in the state court suit and that the negligence proximately caused it to sustain damages. After the deadline for F.W. to designate expert witnesses passed, McKeehan filed a no-evidence motion for summary judgment. In part, he asserted that there was no evidence that his alleged negligence proximately caused damage to F.W. The trial court granted McKeehans motion for summary judgment. Because F.W. did not present any expert evidence on the causation issue, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
