Does your attorney owe you a duty?

In many legal malpractice actions, one of the principal questions to be asked (and answered) is whether the defendant attorney owed a duty to the plaintiff client in the course of the attorney’s representation of said client. In most instances, the answer is a resounding yes. However, not every relationship between an attorney and client will result in such a duty. To determine whether a duty exists, several factors must be considered. This post will highlight two important ones.
