An attorney with Morgan & Morgan’s Business Trial Group helped a client secure a $1.79 million award from her former counsel in a legal malpractice lawsuit Aug. 23.

Orlando-based litigator Benjamin Webster represented real estate broker Laurel Lee Buescher in her suit against Vero Beach, Florida, lawyer Aaron Johnson and the Collins Brown Barkett Chartered law firm in Brevard Circuit Court. On Aug. 23, a jury returned a $1.79 million award, according to the verdict sheet in the case, finding that Johnson and the firm were negligent in their representation of Buescher and caused her to lose a case that she otherwise would have prevailed in.
