Cindy Connolly Defeats Multi-Million Dollar Legal Malpractice Claims
Cindy Connolly won final summary judgment against legal malpractice claims seeking millions of dollars in damages from their client. The claims arose in a dispute between the family members who own a popular summer camp in the Texas Hill Country. The family members who own the camp property contended that the family member who runs the camp owed them millions of dollars in rent. That camp operator sued his brother, a lawyer, claiming that he was negligent and breached fiduciary duties in connection with legal work he did in reorganizing the family’s business. Cindy convinced the court both that no evidence supported the claims and that the statute of limitations barred them.
