Pro Se Plaintiff's Claim for Excessive Legal Fees Against Small Manhattan Law Firm Will Go Forward, Appeals Court Rules
In a lawsuit that alleges fee churning, redundant charges and failure to provide billing statements against the three lawyers making up the firm Joshua L. Dratel, P.C., an Appellate Division, First Department panel ruled on Thursday that plaintiff Debra Cascardo’s excessive legal fees claim should go forward and not be dismissed.
Jeffrey Liddle, the last remaining lawyer at Liddle & Robinson, said he and his firm are in "severe financial distress." Some firms that have defended him in litigation, including Kasowitz Benson Torres, are pursuing him for legal fees.
The program, called the Innovation Intensive Clinic, will be open to 2L and 3L Albany Law students, who aren't required to have an engineering or tech background, and SUNY Poly business and engineering students.
