Case Conclusion Date:March 1, 2009
Practice Area:Real Estate
Outcome:Obtained favorable pre-trial settlement
Description:I represented the defendants in a civil case brought by a mortgage company alleging complex real estate fraud claims. A criminal action, concurrently originated by plaintiff, is still pending in which defendants are represented by separate criminal defense counsel. A mutually acceptable civil settlement was agreed to after a judicial mediation. As part of the civil settlement, I obtained a court order regarding the determination of a good faith settlement, which should assist defendants with the resolution/disposition of the criminal matter.
