Docena vs Limon Case Digest

Cleto Docena vs. Atty. Dominador Q. Limon

295 SCRA 262

Facts: Respondent was petitioner ’s lawyer in a civil case. During that case, he

but should also, by their lives, accord continuing fidelity to them. By extorting

in the law and has indirectly eroded the people’s confidence in the judicial system.
