Morrison Mahoney Partner Alan Brown and Associate Avana Anderson obtained a defense verdict for their attorney-client after a week-long jury trial in Worcester Superior Court.
The Plaintiff, who was a real estate professional, sued her former attorney following the end of their eighteen-year personal (including having children together) and professional relationship. The Plaintiff sought to recover over $1 Million in damages on theories of breach of contract, unjust enrichment and quantum meruit arising out of their alleged business and real estate dealings. The case was especially contentious (and emotional for the parties) as it was a mixture of a personal divorce with great animosity with the business divorce layered on top of it. The jury returned a defense verdict after several hours of deliberations.
