David Lujan to pay over $2.9M to law firm

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - Local attorney David Lujan will have to pay more than $2.9 million for legal services and attorneys' and expert witness fees to the Calvo, Fisher and Jacob law firm. Lujan claimed he had been overbilled and refused to pay the legal fees. 

The firm represented Lujan in a high-stakes lawsuit filed against him in California by his former client, junior larry hillbroom.  Hillbroom alleged that Lujan had stolen tens of millions of dollars from him.  The Calvo firm successfully won the case but the local attorney then refused to pay the legal fees. 

A San Francisco jury had previously awarded the law firm damages of close to $1 million, but a San Francisco superior court judge issued an amended judgment bringing the total to more than $2.9 million and imposing interest at $821 per day.
