Margo Rappel v. Byrnes, O’Hern & Heugle, LLC , et al.,
No. MON-L-3017-18, Superior Court of the State of New Jersey, Monmouth County
Represent Plaintiff in legal malpractice action against her former attorneys who negligently prepared a contract selling the assets of Plaintiff’s online business that failed to protect her against third-party claims pertaining to digital assets included in the sale. Her attorneys then allegedly negligently defended a federal action brought by the buyer of the assets arising from a third-party claim asserted against such buyer who sought to hold the Plaintiff liable. In February 2020, we successfully defeated Defendant’s effort to depose us as Plaintiff’s counsel and obtain our records pertaining to other timeshare members we represent. In March 2020, we successfully defeated Defendants’ effort to disqualify us as Plaintiff’s counsel.
