Jenny Ecklund Quoted in Waco Tribune on Life Partners Case

“Jury awards fraud judgment against Life Partners CEO Pardo”

A jury in Fort Worth has found that Brian Pardo, longtime CEO of Waco-based Life Partners Holdings, committed fraud in his operation of the company he founded and owes millions of dollars to creditors who filed suit against Pardo and several family members.

An attorney for Life Partners Creditors Trust, Jennifer Ecklund, of Dallas, said the finding could result in Pardo owing creditors as much as $65 million. But Robert Burford, a Houston attorney representing Pardo, said the award for damages will not exceed $15 million.
