Jim Kjar successfully defends attorney at trial

In this legal malpractice trial the plaintiff lost a lawsuit against his former attorneys and was forced to pay a large six-figure amount in attorney fees and other damages. He retained the defendant lawyer to prosecute his claims and, after losing that suit, claimed the lawyer was negligent in prosecuting the case, which resulted in plaintiff losing a potential seven-figure damages claim in addition to the aforementioned award against plaintiff. After a four-week trial, the jury found that the attorney was not negligent.
