Pat Lundvall Office of Military Legal Assistance Pro Bono Victory

Pat Lundvall, Chair of the Commercial & Complex Litigation Practice, also dedicates time and expertise to pro bono work, including a case she accepted through the Office of Military Legal Assistance under the Attorney General’s Office, which is a pro bono service program that McDonald Carano helped create.

Pat successfully tried the case before Judge Joanna S. Kishner. The case was brought on behalf of a young female Navy recruiter who is also responsible for the care of her mother and young son. The recruiter purchased a home with a latent defect that was known to the seller but not disclosed at the time of sale. The judge awarded compensatory damages and then trebled them per the statute, and the statute also allowed for an award of fees. The case settled for the full amount of compensatory damages and costs.
