Firm lawyers have extensive experience, representing both plaintiffs and defendants in legal, accounting, and medical malpractice matters. Whether examining the legal standard of care for attorneys and accountants, or determining the cause of a medical procedure gone awry, our lawyers have the skills and depth of experience to favorably resolve any professional liability issue. Recently, the firm obtained an injunction, on behalf of a client, to prevent its former attorney from representing an adverse party in a matter which was substantially related to a prior matter in which the former attorney had represented the client. Other representative cases include:
- Estate of Harvey Swedloff v. Katz (fraud and legal and accounting malpractice): Marks & Sokolov represented plaintiff, an estate of a real estate developer, 50% partner in a real estate company, in a dispute with his former partner over the disposition of the funds of the partnership following the sale of its real estate property. The dispute was based on interpretation of the partnership agreement as well as some accounting that was done by the defendant who was in control of the books. Plaintiff prevailed in all claims.
- Liberty Travel Inc. v. Friedman & Siegelbaum LLP (fraud and legal malpractice): The firm represents Liberty Travel who has professionally liability/legal malpractice claims against several law firms relating to a default judgment. The default judgment resulted in a class action judgment being entered against Liberty. We are working to recover damages resulting from the class action judgment and attorneys fees spent by Liberty defending the class action litigation. The case is currently pending in New Jersey Superior Court.
