NEW BRUNSWICK – The NJSBA has filed a brief seeking friend-of-the-court status in a case asking: If a defendant-attorney’s retainer agreement in a fee-shifting case is unenforceable because defendant failed to adequately inform the client of the ramifications?
In Balducci v. Cige, the NJSBA respectfully urges the Supreme Court to grant certification and reverse that portion of the Appellate Division decision that imposes new fee-shifting retainer agreement requirements on all attorneys.
Read the brief.
