Attorney Colleen Burke Obtains Summary Disposition in Legal Malpractice Case


In a recent legal malpractice case, attorney Colleen H. Burke secured summary disposition by demonstrating to an arbitrator that the plaintiff’s underlying employment case was without merit. Plaintiff was terminated from his position as a police officer due to his inappropriate conduct with a minor. Plaintiff’s union refused to take the matter to arbitration. Colleen’s client represented Plaintiff in efforts to secure unemployment benefits and post termination events with the employer. Colleen successfully argued that even if Plaintiff was able to take his claim for wrongful termination to arbitration, the arbitrator would have agreed with the municipality and upheld the termination.
