COSTA MESA, Calif., April 21, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Morgan Drexen (http://morgandrexen.com) announced today that the United States Bankruptcy Court of Southern Mississippi, in an adversarial proceeding brought by the bankruptcy trustee, has granted Morgan Drexen and Walter Ledda, summary judgement on claims, associated with fraud and misrepresentation under 11 U.S.C. Section 526. The court concluded that claims against Morgan Drexen and its CEO, Walter Ledda were totally without factual basis.
Specifically, the court's decision confirms that it is legal for attorney Tami Munsch, who is supported by administrative services of Morgan Drexen, to provide her clients with services through Morgan Drexen and associated counsel. The agreement Ms. Munsch had with her client clearly provided that her law firm utilized the administrative support services of Morgan Drexen for non-legal-practice services.
"We are pleased by the court's ruling in this matter," said Jeffrey Katz, general counsel for Morgan Drexen. "The decision shows two things, first that there was no misrepresentation by Tami Munsch, an attorney we support with our company's services, and second that the claims against Morgan Drexen were without basis. Furthermore, a large majority of serious legal problems are not addressed with the help of a lawyer. Our legal system must effectively use technology, outsourcing, and non-lawyers to handle the non-legal work once done by lawyers, as it is now possible to streamline and standardize some legal services. Judges like Judge Samson of the Mississippi bankruptcy court appreciate the challenge that Americans confront and will not issue orders tied to anachronistic concepts of lawyering."
"This is a good ruling because it shows that affordable legal services can still be provided for people who are in debt and do not have the ability to hire high-priced attorneys with large support staffs and big overhead," said Morgan Drexen CEO Walter Ledda, who was cleared of any wrongdoing in the case. "Our company has the best intentions of providing outsourced support to attorneys who can then pass the savings on to their clients who are often drowning in debt."
