Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/13/2016 -- The Law Office of Attorney Timothy D. McGonigle, PC, a top Los Angeles Breach of Contract Lawyer, announced that they have obtained a favorable outcome in the case of an elderly client who was sued by another law firm for $1.5 million dollars. McGonigle acted as the principal trial attorney in the arbitration case and fought on the client's behalf to help stop a judgment from being ordered against them for the money.
The purpose of the lawsuit filed by the client's former law firm was to recover attorney's fees and costs. The former law firm had represented the elderly client and his business partner in litigation pertaining to several commercial real estate projects. The business partner ran the real estate projects and primarily dealt with the former law firm.
As Los Angeles Business Litigation Attorney Timothy D. McGonigle, stated, "The arbitration lasted two weeks and was presented to three judges. The attorneys at our firm argued that there was an active conflict of interest with the former law firm because they asked the client to sign an engagement letter 18 months after they agreed to represent both partners. This letter made the client jointly liable for fees relating to joint projects with his business partner as well as for litigation that solely involved the business partner. Unfortunately, they did so knowing that the elderly client's business partner would not be able to pay the fees because of some considerable debts he had incurred."
McGonigle goes on to say, "Based on the information presented by our firm, the arbitrators involved in the case denied the request for $1.5 million dollars' worth of attorney's fees and costs to be paid by the elderly client. This favorable outcome protects the client from having to unfairly pay out of pocket for something for which he should never have been held responsible. We are happy to have been able to be of service to this client and relieved that justice has been served in this case."
