Attorneys Can still be Sued After Settlement is reached with a Third-Party

Gorjuice Wrap, Inc. v. Okin, Hollander & De Luca, LLP, N.J. Super. A.D., (2011) is leg al malpractice claim that challenges the Puder Doctrine. The Puder doctrine prevents a plaintiff from suing past council for damages because the plaintiff took a settlement that was less than the actual damages were worth. 

Not All Actions Against Attorneys require a Certificate of Merit

Sabella v. Estate of Milides, 992 A.2d 180 is a case about an attorney's misconduct, in which the trial court denied Appellant's motion to strike the judgment of non pros. A judgment of non pros enters judgment in favor of one party because the other has not done something, such as not appeared in Court. Here, Appellant did not file a certificate of merit, which is required in professional liability case.
