With one more foreseeable month remaining for Guerra and Farah PLLC to invoice San Benito CISD for investigating recently reinstated Superintendent of Schools Antonio G. Limón, figures as of April 28 indicate that the school district may have incurred legal fees in excess of $22,000.

Specifically, the district has thus far paid Guerra and Farah – the Houston-based law firm the SBCISD Board of Trustees hired in August 2013 to investigate more than 60 allegations against Limón — $22,383.65 at an hourly rate of $150 and for less than a year’s work. In the month of April, the law firm charged the district $1,575, which was a substantial decrease compared to the $7,584.33 and $5,387.32 paid to Guerra and Farah for work conducted in the months of February and March, respectively.
