    The problem with the decision/order is that it does not reflect that the client was hell bent upon prosecuting his claims against Andrew Stein and wanted no stone to be left unturned. And while the client did not want to go to trial while the appeal from the denial of summary judgment was pending, there was no stay in effect so that it was imperative to prepare responsibly to best represent the client’s interests. Parenthetically, the matter first went to arbitration where the firm was awarded the fees it sought.-Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C.
