In many cases of legal malpractice, a person will turn to attorneys only to find that they're not interested in taking the case to trial. In some instances, attorneys may refuse cases because of knowing the other attorney involved.
A group of franchised coffee shops has filed a legal malpractice suit against the law firm Dady & Gardner. The suit claims that the law firm offered incompetent legal advice, which resulted in irreparable harm to the business of the coffee shops. Allegedly, the law office billed $5 million in legal fees and then abandoned the case three weeks before a crucial hearing.
