Lederer Weston Craig attorneys Kent Gummert and Alexandra Galbraith Davis tried a legal malpractice claim in Polk County, Iowa in November 2023.  LWC defended its client after the client missed the statute of limitations to pursue an underinsured motorist claim. The client admitted liability; the only issue at trial was damages. The Plaintiffs asked for $275,000 at trial, and the jury rendered a verdict of $29, 983.60.  After offsets from underlying settlements, the likely judgment will be $2,000.
