Legal Question

Asked on: 8/17/11, 9:29 am

Is it appropriate for the attorney for the defendant in a quite title action against a land title company to contact and negotiate the insurance company of our previous attorney to defray the title insurance companies cost of settlement. As the plaintiffs in action and the one eventually harmed by this action we never authorized any action against the previous attorney.

Our current attorney suggested a deal that would include the previous attorney's potential malpractice action. Though there was never any indication that we would support such an action since the previous attorney won the case in lower and opted out of the appeal process.
