A company is accusing a Chicago attorney and his law firm of failing to return more than $25,000 in settlement funds.
CCS Commercial filed a lawsuit Aug. 4 in the Cook County Circuit Court against Parker F. McMahan Jr. and McMahan & Sigunick, alleging wrongful conversion.
In its complaint, CCS states it hired McMahan and his law firm to represent its clients in a number of cases. It alleges that McMahan collected settlement funds but has failed to return any of the money to CCS.
In total, the outstanding amount on the above-referenced cases totals at least $25,907.72, according to the suit. CCS asserts the defendants have acknowledged they owe the above-referenced funds, but have offered no reason for non-payment.
In addition to the money it claims the defendants owe, CCS is seeking punitive damages, plus attorney’s fees, costs and other relief the court deems just. It is being represented by attorney Bradley A. Skafish of Deutschman & Associates in Chicago.
