Law Firm Gives Improper Advice To Real Estate Developer
The firm represented a large real estate development company that sued the defendant law firm for failing to provide appropriate advice to the real estate development company as it brought a certain residential real estate property out of the Mitchell-Lama rent regulation program, to sell at fair market value. As a result of the failure to provide appropriate legal advice, the property was still able to come out of the Mitchell-Lama program but it had to be sold at a reduced price, resulting in a reduction of profit to the real estate development company. The case was settled after mediation.
Settlement: $ 2,750,000
Case Dismissed Due To Lawyer's Failure To Comply With Discovery
A construction worker hired attorneys to represent him to recover damages for injuries sustained in an accident on the job. The attorneys failed, repeatedly, to comply with court ordered discovery and, as a result, the case was dismissed. The Firm was retained and brought a legal malpractice action against these attorneys for damages sustained in the underlying accident, including spinal inuries, which required a spinal fusion. This case settled before trial for $1.8 million.
Settlement: $ 1,800,000
Vaccine Claim Lost Due to Lawyer's Delay
A child suffered a serious neurological reaction to a DPT vaccine and his family consulted an attorney for a possible medical malpractice case. The attorney rejected the medical malpractice case but delayed the filing of an appropriate claim under The National Vaccine Program, or referring it to other counsel, until the law governing the program changed, causing the child to ultimately lose his claim. The Firm sued the original attorney consulted for delay in the filing of the vaccine claim, and the case settled in mediation for $1.25 million.
Settlement: $ 1,250,000
