Northern California law firm settles malpractice claim arising out of its failure to properly draft and advise client about a settlement.

This case was against a Northern California law firm arising out of the failure of the firm to properly advise a client on the terms and effect of a settlement agreement which the client entered into believing it was to be the end of his involvement in the litigation. That turned out to be incorrect, and he had to pay an additional $1,500,000 to settle the case. This case was referred to us from another legal malpractice lawyer who had recommended to the client that he accept a $50,000 settlement. When the client balked, the attorney referred the case to us.
