PHILADELPHIA – A pair of local attorneys are seeking overdue legal fees totaling more than $27,000 from a Glenside-based country club, according to a newly filed suit in state court.
Gerald Chalphin, Esq. of Philadelphia and Drew S. Dorfman, Esq. of Bala Cynwyd filed suit in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas on Oct. 24 versus LuLu Country Club, of Glenside.
“On or about March 30, 2015, defendant engaged Chalphin to perform legal services for defendant regarding its principal place of business. On or about April 7, 2015, Chalphin with the knowledge and authority of defendant, engaged Dorfman to perform legal services with Chalphin on behalf of defendant,” according to the lawsuit.
Despite being requested to do so several times, the suit says the defendant made no payments for these services other than a single, $2,500 payment to Chalphin on July 17, 2015. Further, the defendant has failed to pay the outstanding balance of $20,622.50 due Chalphin or the outstanding balance of $6,840.58 due Dorfman, according to the lawsuit.
For counts of breach of contract, breach of implied contract, quantum meruit and unjust enrichment and quantum meruit, plaintiff Chalphin is seeking damages of $20,622.50 and plaintiff Dorfman is seeking damages of $6,840.58, plus such other relief as may be appropriate.
The plaintiffs are represented by Dorfman of Dorfman Law, in Bala Cynwyd.
