Linda Streeter devotes her practice to the defense of professional liability claims, with a particular focus on the defense of attorneys in malpractice litigation. She also represents real estate professionals, accountants, and insurance brokers in professional liability matters.
Linda's litigation practice includes complex breach of fiduciary duty claims, business and employment disputes, and consumer finance and mortgage-related matters.
Linda joined Hinshaw in 2006 after a seven-year hiatus from the practice of law to raise a family. Previously, she was of counsel at a Pasadena law firm, where she focused on the defense of governmental entities and employers in sexual harassment and employment discrimination litigation.
Linda's representative cases include Skarbrevik v. Cohen, England & Whitfield (1991) 231 Cal.App.3d 692, 282 Cal.Rptr. 627, which stands for the legal principle that an attorney's representation of a close corporation does not create an attorney-client relationship with its shareholders merely because the attorney's actions on behalf of the corporation also benefit the shareholders.
