Attorneys’ fee appeal

Summary:  We represented a convenience store owner on appeal who brought suit, claiming that he had been defrauded in the purchase of the business.  The client lost at trial before a jury and following post-trial motions, the trial court ordered the client to pay a large attorneys’ fee award to the prevailing party.  We were retained after trial to handle the appeal.

Result:  We successfully obtained a reversal of the attorneys’ fee award.
