MG Attorneys Successfully Defend Local Lawyer

In August of 2017, attorneys Ed Mitchell and Jessica Harlow successfully defended a central Pennsylvania attorney in a legal malpractice case to a defense verdict, in a binding arbitration.

The case had been pending for more than 10 years, and arose out of a commercial real estate transaction. The attorney had represented the seller in the transaction. The case against the attorney related to a claim that the attorney had acted in concert with his client to defraud the buyer. The case against the attorney was brought after the buyer was unable to fully recover from the seller in a separate civil action.

The claims were vigorously contested upon multiple grounds, and after two days of testimony, the arbitrator found in favor of the defendant attorney.
