A lawyer who is now with Montgomery McCracken Walker & Rhoads was hit with a legal malpractice verdict of more than $6.6 million in a suit brought against her and her former firm by a corporate real estate client that said her poor drafting of a lease agreement sparked a lawsuit in California that cost $4 million to settle.
