  • Four year protracted litigation of a broker’s lien claim resulting in a scheduled retrial of broker’s claim for damages.  After an initial unsuccessful trial, our office was able to set aside the initial award to the plaintiff.  The plaintiff/broker ultimately abandoned their claim by way of voluntary non-suit due to our vigorous unyielding defense
