Attorneys Brian Einhorn and Karen Geibel Obtain Summary Disposition in Legal-Malpractice Case


Attorneys Brian D. Einhorn and Karen R. Geibel obtained summary disposition for their client in a legal-malpractice case. Brian and Karen successfully argued that the plaintiff’s claims were invalid because their client’s statements—the basis for the plaintiff’s malicious-prosecution claim—were made in a judicial proceeding and therefore absolutely privileged. They also argued that the plaintiff couldn’t pursue a legal-malpractice claim at all because there was no attorney-client relationship between the plaintiff and the defendant. The Wayne County Circuit Court agreed, dismissing all claims against Brian and Karen’s client.
