Cypress, Stafford residents sued over real estate sale for salon and day spa
A day spa owner is suing over claims his attorney and realtor steered him in the wrong direction when he attempted to expand his business.
Lee Pham filed a lawsuit on Sept. 27 in Harris County District Court against Victor Grijalva, of Cypress, Sophia Huynh, of Stafford, and Christopher M. Pham Law Group citing breach of contract, negligence, gross negligence, fraud, misrepresentation, breach of fiduciary duty and violations of the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act.
Pham, the owner of a salon and day spa, says he hired the defendants to help him find a second location for his business and to help him create a company, Visage Village LLC.
According to the brief, Grijalva showed Pham property, located at 17634 King’s Court Road in Cypress, stating it was zoned commercially.
The suit alleges that after Pham paid a large sum of money for the property, he learned it was strictly for residential use only.
Pham is seeking damages, attorney’s fees and court costs. He is being represented in the case by Houston attorney T. Michael Ballases.
