On April 1, 2014, Alan Schonfeld successfully defended his client in a San Diego Superior Court legal malpractice action.  Alan also obtained a verdict in his client’s favor on his cross-complaint for unpaid fees and costs in the amount of $57,174.  The plaintiff alleged the attorney was negligent in an underlying real estate fraud and breach of contract action that resulted in a $2.2 million verdict against him.  The jury deliberated just three hours before reaching its decision of no negligence after a two week trial.
