Jason Reese Brings Justice to Legal Malpractice Case

Steve Wagner

An Auburn attorney, Kevin Likes, currently has a legal malpractice lawsuit being brought against him.

The lawsuit was filed this month by Rickey D. Whitaker and Cheryl L. Whitaker, who are claiming that Likes mishandled their personal injury lawsuit that had been filed in 2008.

Whitaker filed the earlier personal injury lawsuit against a driver who allegedly caused him injury. In handling this case, Likes failed to provide proper information and did not file his court documents on time. Because of his failure to perform his duties, the Whitakers lost their right to file a claim against the other driver in the incident.

The Whitakers’ original lawsuit was dismissed from the Allen County Court because of Likes’ “failure to timely respond”. The defendants were awarded only $3700 to compensate for their court and legal fees.

Jason Reese is currently assisting the Whitakers in their Legal Malpractice Lawsuit against Kevin Likes. According to the information he has gathered, the car that caused the accident in 2008 was insured for $1 million. So while this may not be a “million dollar case”, it is certainly worth more than $3700, and the Whitakers deserve more respect than to be tossed aside and not responded to when they hire a lawyer.
