How We Have Helped: Legal Malpractice Case Results

Case Name: Richard Doe v. Law Firm
Recovery Range: $400,000 - $650,000

Summary: The plaintiff doctor owned medical clinics in Sacramento and San Leandro. He hired a law firm to represent him in selling the medical clinics. As part of the sale, plaintiff was to receive first priority security interests in certain assets being sold. The defendant law firm failed to perfect these security interests. The buyer repeatedly defaulted on its obligations to plaintiff. Protracted negotiations and threats of bankruptcy ensued. As a result, plaintiff sold assets for over a million dollars, but recovered assets valued at far less.

Case Name: Alfred Doe v. Defendant Attorney
Recovery Range: $400,000 - $650,000

Summary: Plaintiff sued defendant attorney for negligently selling real estate that the client owned. The attorney improperly secured the indebtedness of the buyer on the property.

Case Name: Christina Doe v. Law Firm
Recovery Range: $100,000 - $250,000

Summary: Christina Doe's husband Jon was badly hurt in a car wreck. Jon and Christina retained the Law Firm to represent him on his personal injury claims. For nearly two years, Christine gave the law firm details about how Jon's injuries affected her and her relationship with him. Law Firm filed a lawsuit on Jon's behalf against the driver who hit him. It never informed Christina that she had a "loss of consortium" claim, which the spouse of an injured party can bring for harm to the spouse and the couple's relationship. Christina learned that she had lost her rights to a loss of consortium claim after the statute of limitations had run. Jon eventually settled his car crash lawsuit for $1.375 million. Christina sued Law Firm and its partners for failing to protect her rights.
