North Haven, Conn., attorney Bruce M. Killion has been ordered to pay his former clients more than $25,000 for shoddy representation that culminated in his failure to show up to court on his clients’ behalf. New Haven Judge Trial Referee William L. Hadden Jr. recently ruled in favor of Killion’s former clients, Margaret and Robert Gallager, and awarded them $25,875. “We will be using whatever the Practice Book allows to collect the $25,000,” vowed the couple’s new lawyer, Middletown attorney Robert Babcock. Killion did not return phone calls. The Gallagers retained Killion to represent them relating to injuries Margaret Gallager suffered more than a decade ago, according to court documents. On the evening of June 3, 1995, she fell on the outside steps as she was leaving the Masonic Temple on Main Street in East Hartford, Conn., and severely injured her lower leg. The Gallagers, through Babcock, claimed Killion was negligent and breached his contract with them when he failed to file a complaint against the Masonic Temple or any other parties potentially responsible for Gallager’s injuries within the statute of limitations. “He failed to do anything except send a letter of representation to the insurance company,” Babcock said. Recently the Gallagers filed a grievance complaint against Killion with the Connecticut Statewide Grievance Committee, according to Babcock. Killion has yet to respond to that complaint, which is still being investigated by the SGC, Babcock said.
