Florida Lawyers Handling Attorney Negligence Lawsuits

At St. Denis & Davey, we hold our fellow lawyers accountable. We understand the impact that these errors can have on your life and care about how our profession is viewed. Legal malpractice claims can develop as the result of a wide range of attorney mistakes, including:

  • A lawyer may miss the statute of limitations, leaving an injured person without any legal remedy to address wrongs.
  • An attorney may fail to respond to motions or attend court hearings.
  • Attorneys have a fiduciary duty to protect their clients. When attorneys place their own interests before those of their clients, they breach this duty and may be held accountable for the consequences.

  • Lawyers may be negligent in the performance of their duties, making serious errors during trial or failing to properly investigate their clients' legal matters.
  • An attorney may collect attorney's fees and fail to perform the expected work or use client funds inappropriately before these fees have been earned.

Though primarily a statewide legal malpractice law firm, we can also work on national and international cases in areas of contracts, commerce, trade documents and import-export ventures by associating with local counsel.
