$323,069 Award Won by Law Offices of Timothy D. McGonigle in Legal Malpractice Case
Timothy D. McGonigle, Principal trial attorney with Law Offices of Timothy D. McGonigle, gained a favorable award for a homeowner in a legal malpractice case against her former attorney. Due to her attorney’s failure to properly litigate a previous case, the homeowner was forced to pay $174,000 to her contractor who had sued her for breach of contract due to nonpayment for work performed. After a 12-day trial, Mr. McGonigle obtained a favorable jury verdict for the homeowner. Because the jury disagreed on damages, Mr. McGonigle re-tried the case, and received a $323,069 award in favor of the homeowner.
“When Tim and his staff took on my case, they had hurdles created by former counsel to overcome. Even with all that was working against us, Tim and his staff used their considerable gifts and skills to successfully resolve the case.“
