Law Offices of Timothy D. McGonigle Obtains $700,000 Verdict in Legal Malpractice Action
Principal trial attorney Timothy D. McGonigle represented an automotive design and manufacturing company in a legal malpractice suit against its former counsel, the prominent intellectual property firm Fulwider Patton. The case arose from a previous class action against the company where Fulwider Patton failed to appropriately defend the action, and improperly settled with the plaintiff. Mr. McGonigle asserted that, absent the mishandling of that case by Fulwider Patton, the company would have prevailed. After eight days of trial, the jury ruled in favor of the company in the amount of $700,000.
“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.“
