Share Article

The jury agreed that the original attorney was guilty of legal malpractice and awarded Mr. Winston’s client, West Sunrise Development Corporation, $550,000. Total damages are over $800,000 after interest and expenses.

Attorney Bradley Winston of Winston, Clark & Wigand, P.A., successfully represented the owner of West Sunrise Development Corporation, a Broward County corporate shopping plaza, in a case involving legal malpractice. The jury trial, Case No: 08-12961 (25), was held in the Broward County 17th Judicial Circuit Court.

“The client’s original real estate attorney mishandled the sale, unfortunately, and locked the receiver into accepting a below-market sales price of $4,250,000," said Brad Winston, founding partner. "A prior offeror flipped the property for $4,800,000 on the same day as the receiver closed for $4,250,000.”

Selling the property for the highest price possible was a top priority for the plaza owner, and multiple buyers took an interest in purchasing the property.

The jury agreed that the original attorney was guilty of legal malpractice and awarded Mr. Winston’s client $550,000, which represented the difference between the two sales. Total damages are over $800,000 after interest and expenses.
