Malicious Prosecution

We are first and foremost trial lawyers, which means we are ready and able to take the offensive when civil litigation brought against our clients proves to be baseless and malicious. When a plaintiff claims harassment, negligence, malfeasance and/or defamation, it is not uncommon for the lawsuit to be brought for a purpose other than bringing the defendant to justice. Common reasons include vindictiveness, financial gain, commercial advantage and negligence.  

Too often defendants are advised by counsel who have little or no trial experience to negotiate a settlement with malicious plaintiffs. The trial attorneys of Ellis Law Group, LLP give you the option to not only to be exonerated by verdict or summary judgment, but to sue the malicious prosecutor for damages which can include attorneys’ fees, court costs and compensation for humiliation, mental suffering and loss of reputation and credit. Also, victims of malicious prosecution can often collect punitive damages.

Representative Case

Mencarini v. W. (October 2017) Seven-figure settlement for plaintiff-clients following mediation. Clients were falsely accused of sexual harassment in the workplace.
