The case involved allegations of legal malpractice and violations of New York State Judiciary Law § 487 arising from our client’s defense of an attorney in a disciplinary proceeding instituted by the New York State Grievance Committee. Our client’s client, an attorney, was suspended from the practice of law after admitting to escrow violations, misappropriation, and other misconduct. In support of our client’s motion for summary judgment, David secured the favorable affidavit of a legal ethics expert who opined that our client appropriately exercised his professional judgment in advising his client to pursue a mitigation strategy in the disciplinary proceeding. David also successfully argued that our client’s handling of the disciplinary matter was not the “but for” cause of the attorney’s suspension.

Congratulations, David!
