Andrew J. Spinnell was recently asked if he had legal malpractice insurance and failed to answer. We don't know if that means that he doesn't have malpractice insurance now but for two other cases he was not insured.
Andrew J. Spinnell was sued for legal malpractice three times. One case for $250,000 involving his handling of a breach of contract action was dismissed as being time barred as it was brought too late. Another case for big bucks was settled before a trial date was set. We hear that the plaintiff is very happy with all the money he received. The third case is presently open in New York State Supreme Court, New York County. We do not know if he is insured in this case since he won't answer the question on this point when asked in a letter offering a legal referral.
How many lawyers have been sued for legal malpractice three times?
If you are a former client of Andrew J. Spinnell and were talked into accepting a settlement that was less than you knew the case was worth you may have a claim for legal malpractice against Mr. Spinnell. In this regard, we have a lawyer ready and anxious to sue him on your behalf on a contingency fee basis.
If your attorney advocated a settlement that was far less that what he established the case was worth he may have committed legal malpractice.
When an attorney fails to acknowledge the value of a case and advocates settlement for far less than what the case is worth, that is malpractice. Popescu v. McCarthy, 271 A.D.2d 204 (ld Dept. 2000).
When an attorney's misconduct forces a client to settle for less than the case is worth, that is malpractice. Rapp v. Lauer, 229 A.D.2d 383 (2d Dept. 1996).

You should also know that:
Andrew J. Spinnell was reprimanded by the State of Connecticut for unethical conduct.
Andrew Spinnell says that this reprimand is no big deal as it is the lowest form of discipline that can be imposed. Andrew simply does not get it. He does not understand that a discipline against an attorney is a black mark for unethical conduct that never disappears from his reputation.
He was sanctioned in the amount of $5,000 by Judge Martin for frivolous motion practice in Federal Court
He sued Toshiba for a minor hearing loss from use of its headphones and was sanctioned in New York State Supreme Court in that lawsuit.
He was found by the Appellate Court to have not paid his employee's unemployment insurance taxes
Andrew J. Spinnell is a very bad man.
I wouldn't use him as my attorney, certainly after he was sued for malpractice three times. Nor should you.
