Samuel Clay v. Geoffrey R. McDonald P.C. t/a Geoffrey R. McDonald & Associates P.C.
Plaintiff says on June 11, 2009, he suffered gunshot wounds at an EconoLodge in Norfolk. On or about July 14, 2009, plaintiff retained defendant (“GMA”) to represent him. Plaintiff says he became dissatisfied with the manner in which defendant was representing him, exacerbated, he says, when defendant sent plaintiff’s employer a letter requesting information about plaintiff’s lost time and wages for injuries sustained in a “motor vehicle accident.” Plaintiff says Jonathan Halperin joined defendant firm on or about June 1, 2010, and began representing him, and he became satisfied with Halperin’s representation. His lawsuit is pending in the circuit court of the city of Norfolk. GMA terminated Halperin’s employment without notice on March 20, 2012, plaintiff says, and contacted plaintiff to obtain plaintiff’s agreement to substitute another attorney in the Norfolk case. Plaintiff terminated his fee agreement with defendant, and Halperin continues to represent him. On or about May 8, 2012, GMA asserted “a lien for attorneys’ fees and costs advanced” in the Norfolk lawsuit, plaintiff says. Plaintiff asks the court for a judgment in his favor to provide the following: that plaintiff terminated his contingency fee to defendant for cause; that plaintiff owes no attorney’s fees to defendant; that defendant has no valid lien for attorney’s fees against plaintiff; an order stating the proper amount of the lien in favor of GMA for reasonable and necessary expenses advanced on behalf of the plaintiff during the time defendant represented him; and costs.
