New York, NY, July 22, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Ameri & Associates, a leading law firm with offices in New York and New Jersey, announced today that it successfully defended their Corporate Clients, an international shipping company in arbitration $1,200,000.00.
The Plaintiff, a Passaic County Attorney sued their former clients for unpaid legal fees in the sum of over $1,300,000.00. The Company disputed these fees arguing the retainer agreement did not call for this amount and in fact the Attorneys conduct through the litigation was inappropriate and incompetent, leaving them exactly where they were before the litigation began. The Company argued the fees were outlandish and unsubstantiated. This firm successfully demonstrated in Arbitration that the Plaintiffs' proofs were insufficient and his retainer ambiguous. The arbitrator awarded $988.00 to the Plaintiff out of the $1,300,000.00 he demanded. This was a successful reduction in non-binding arbitration of 99.92% of Plaintiffs demand amount.
Nima Ameri, Esq. of Ameri & Associates: “I am very happy a neutral non-binding arbiter saw the case for what it was. I believe conduct like this by attorneys is what hurts our field’s reputation and am glad my clients were able to see the justice system is greater than their bad experience with their former counsel.”
