”Partner Harvey Lung defended Richard Beall & Associates in professional liability claims arising from a major condominium project. While the plaintiff demanded the policy limits, our law firm proceeded with a vigorous defense. In a mini-trial in the Circuit Court of Hawaii, the jury found in favor of our client. The case later settled.”
