Attorney David Reddell on the record talked to Eyewitness News about his client, Dr. Marcelle Mallery and an incident that's making national headlines involving three doctors.
"Sort of have had their life turned upside down," he said. "It's been tumultuous."
It all started with a phone call from Mallery's former colleague, Dr. Brandon Fisher. Court papers state he warned her that his wife, Dr. Angela Siler-Fisher, an ER doctor at Ben Taub Hospital, was headed to her home to beat her up.
"The four of them are friends. They would socialize together," Reddell said.
Investigators say Dr. Fisher, who once appeared on "Untold Stories of the ER," was seen on home surveillance video kicking in a doggy door to get in to Dr. Mallery's West University home. Once inside, court records state she wrote explicit words including "homewrecker" in red lipstick on the bathroom mirror and even placed unopened condoms up the stairs leading to the bedroom.
"My client has denied having any kind of sexual relationship with Dr. Fisher's husband," Reddell said.
New information from police reveal Dr. Fisher even had her young daughter call Dr. Mallery. Court records quote the little girl as saying "stay away from my daddy, you homewrecker."
"Dr. Fisher, if she could go back in time, would have wish she hadn't done anything other than have a quiet conversation among the four of them," Reddell said. "That would have been the proper way to resolve this and then maybe this could have been brought to a rational conclusion."
Reddell says there's still time to make a amends and keep this case from doing any more damage, and from further tarnishing the good these doctors have done.
"Because of the nature of them being two prominent doctors that are involved here, it can turn things into a whole different spectrum," Reddell said. "Dr. Mallery and her family just want to get through this and they wish Dr. Fisher the best in getting through this, so there's no us versus them mentality."
Rusty Hardin, attorney for Dr. Angela Siler-Fisher, gave a statement to Eyewitness News: "I appreciate Mr. Reddell's comments. I think those are gracious comments. My client feels the same way. This is an incident that Angela regrets happened. She embarrassed about the entire event, and hopes both parties can put this aside and move on with their lives."
