Litigation is sometimes necessary to resolve a business or personal dispute, but it can be disruptive to you and your business, which is why we aggressively pursue dispositive motions to try to obtain pre-trial judgments for our clients. The cases described below represent the types of results that our experienced litigators regularly obtain for our clients.
SLG Wins Special Motion to Dismiss and Recovers Fees
In a case concerning the purchase and development of real estate, Schofield Law Group successfully obtained dismissal of all claims asserted against our client and dissolution of a lis pendens recorded against the property. Based on the arguments asserted by SLG, the Middlesex Superior Court ruled that the alleged contract failed to satisfy the Statute of Frauds and granted our Special Motion to Dismiss pursuant to the Lis Pendens Statute, which entitles our client to recover its legal fees and costs.
SLG Obtains Dismissal on the Grounds of Personal Jurisdiction
In a case filed against our client in California, Schofield Law Group successfully argued that the case should be dismissed because the court lacked personal jurisdiction over our client, who is the trustee of a Massachusetts trust. In dismissing the case, the Shasta County Superior Court agreed with our argument that the trustee did not have sufficient contact with the State of California to warrant the exercise of jurisdiction over him.
