Slaughter & Reagan Successfully Defend Against a Multi-Million Dollar Real Estate Guarantee Claim

Attorney William M. Slaughter and Attorney Jeffrey J. Halfen defended a real property guaranty action brought by the successor to California National Bank. The plaintiff demanded 13.8 million dollars. Defendants were able to establish that the guaranty was forged. As a result, we obtained a defense verdict and the firm's client was awarded $1,315,000.00 in attorneys' fees and costs.

The result achieved in this case was significant in several respects. Not only did Slaughter & Reagan, LLP successfully defend its 86-year-old client from enforcement of a fraudulent guaranty, the firm was able to recover not only the attorneys' fees it incurred but those of the prior law firms as well.
