Guam - Local attorney David Lujan faces yet another legal challenge, as he is being sued by the very law firm he hired to represent him in several other civil suits. The Calvo & Clark law firm filed a complaint for damages for breach of contract against Lujan in the San Francisco County Superior Court.
The firm alleges Lujan owes more than $1 million in attorney's fees for work they performed in several suits in California, Hawaii and even on Guam.
Calvo & Clark represented Lujan in a civil suit filed by DHL heir Junior Larry Hillbroom and successfully had the case dismissed. The prominent attorney still faces two civil suits filed by Keith Waibel, who alleges Lujan misappropriated $250,000 in trust money that was supposed to have purchased a home for Hillbroom's grandmother. Waibel also alleges Lujan and his wife, Anna, broke an agreement to reimburse the JLH Pacific Trust for millions of dollars in legal fees from a transaction related to the Bank of Saipan.
Lujan meanwhile filed a defamation suit locally on Guam against Hillbroom's attorneys and others, alleging statements they made to KUAM News were inaccurate and marred his reputation.
