CSK OBTAINS COMPLETE DEFENSE VERDICT IN $5.2M LEGAL MALPRACTICE ACTION

November 22, 2019

CSK Partners Barry Postman, Jonathan Vine and Justin Levine of the firm’s West Palm Beach office obtained

a complete defense verdict in a two week jury trial held in Federal Court today.  CSK represented two lawyers and their law firm in defense of a multi-million dollar claim for legal malpractice and fraud stemming from the lawyers representation of real estate developers in a complicated commercial development.   It was alleged that the CSK clients failed to keep their clients (the Plaintiffs) informed of their representation, agreed to the entry of a final judgment without consent, and then concealed their efforts by sending out a fraudulent e-mail suggesting the matter had been “fully litigated” despite the fact that an agreed final judgment was entered.

There was no evidence supporting Plaintiff’s consent to the final judgment and Plaintiff denied that they agreed to the same and/or were aware of their attorneys’ efforts.  The Plaintiffs asked the jury for $5.2 million dollars.  After deliberating for 5 hours over two days, the jury came back with a complete defense verdict.
