$250,000+ Recovered for Client in Fee Dispute

Resolution Date

Practice Areas
Commercial Litigation
Legal Malpractice


A prominent Atlanta law firm retained Tom Carlock and Pete Werdesheim about a fee dispute with a client. The firm had obtained a judgment worth over a half-million dollars for the client and successfully defended the award on appeal, all while working on a hourly basis. The client owed the firm a substantial sum of money and hired a new attorney, who raised allegations of overbilling and ethical violations in connection with certain interest charges. Tom and Pete were able to negotiate a resolution to the fee dispute without resort to litigation, and their client received over $250,000.00, nearly 100% of the principal amount owed.
