OMW wins Summary Judgment in Legal Malpractice case

February 05, 2016

Daniel W. Glavin recently obtained summary judgment on behalf of OMW’s attorney-client in a claim seeking damages for legal malpractice.  The court concluded that plaintiff, who did not designate an expert, could not prevail as a matter of law without expert testimony to establish the standard of care.  In addition, the court found that the attorney-client’s failure to prevail in the underlying action was based on the legal interpretation of a contract, and not due to any error or omission on his part. R.S. v. W.S., United States District Court for the Northern District of Indiana, South Bend Division, Cause No. 3:14-CV-1951-CAN (February 5, 2016).
