Michael S. Pascazi, Esq., as Plaintiff’s attorney, was faced with pleadings, received from opposing counsel, on a motion to re-argue and renew, that were clearly frivolous, as a matter of law. Attorney Pascazi felt that Plaintiff, his client, should not have to bear the expense of dealing with frivolous papers. Attorney Pascazi brought a cross motion, on behalf of Plaintiff, seeking sanctions. Plaintiff’s cross motion seeking sanctions was granted by the N.Y.S. Supreme Court, and opposing counsel was directed to pay monies to Pascazi Law Offices PLLC, for the benefit of Pascazi’s client. This was not the first award of sanctions against an opposing attorney, for frivolous conduct in litigation, granted to Attorney Pascazi.
Pascazi Law Offices PLLC vigorously defends its clients against the frivolous conduct of opposing counsel, which is unfortunately all too common in today’s proceedings. Frivolous conduct in litigation serves no useful purpose. It only serves to delay, and multiply the litigation, as well as drive up the costs of litigation needlessly.
Should you, a loved one or a friend believe that you are the target of frivolous litigation, seek competent legal advice as soon as possible. Further, do not hesitate to contact Attorney Pascazi for a Free Initial Consultation.
