What is Legal Malpractice?
Legal malpractice can come in the form of negligence, breach of contract or fiduciary duty by a lawyer while providing legal services that cause their clients harm.
When our clients are injured because of another person or party’s negligence, they look to our law firm to help with their financial recovery.
That is a service we have successfully provided for nearly four decades.
If your lawyer did not follow certain standards of ethical and professional conduct, and you suffered from their errors, you may be eligible to file a legal malpractice claim.
What are the Most Common Types of Legal Malpractice?
Proving legal malpractice requires more than the assumption that your attorney simply did not do enough to win your case or protect your interests.
We must be able to show that your attorney fell below the community standard of care and the breach was legal malpractice that caused damages.
Common examples of legal malpractice may include:
- Failure to know the law
- Failure to meet deadlines
- Planning errors
- Inadequate discovery
- Poor trial strategies
- An inability to carry out fiduciary duties
- An inability to follow statutes
If you have personally or professionally suffered from legal malpractice, our attorneys may be able to help you recover your losses by filing a claim against the lawyer or law firm that caused your harm.
