Alabama Supreme Court Affirms Dismissal of Legal Malpractice Case

Attorneys Involved:  Alan T. Hargrove, Jr. and Bethany L. Bolger

The defendants, an attorney and his firm, were sued by a former client under the Alabama Legal Services Liability Act in Montgomery County Circuit Court.  Attorneys Hargrove and Bolger successfully moved for the dismissal of the defendants in their initial responsive filing to the complaint.  The plaintiff appealed the circuit court’s decision to the Alabama Supreme Court, and Attorneys Hargrove and Bolger again defended the dismissal of the defendants.

The dismissal was affirmed by the Supreme Court of Alabama without opinion.
