Legal malpractice and the steps to solutions

In a situation that is likely already overwhelming, discovering that an attorney has not provided quality, professional service can lead to yet another stressor. Floridians in these situations may be considering taking legal action. Before one takes these steps, it can prove helpful to know the most common ways lawyers can be guilty of malpractice, and what clients can do in these unfortunate situations.

Bad estate planning advice could be legal malpractice

Hiring an estate planning attorney to help draft a will in Florida can prevent disputes and challenges later. However, state laws differ, and laws regarding probate, estate planning and taxes change frequently. If an attorney does not pay rigorous attention to these, and as a result does not perform his or her legal duty correctly, a beneficiary's inheritance could be at stake. 

How you can protect your company against conflict of interest

One of the most critical parts to securing your success as a competitive organization, is to protect your intellectual assets and prevent other people from stealing your ideas or doing things that could compromise your strategy. At St. Denis & Davey, we have helped many Florida organizations to learn more about what they can do to protect themselves against conflict of interest. 

Dealing with broker malpractice

Investing can be a risky business, so much so that those who do it in Jacksonville are said to be "playing the market." Like many of those that we here at St. Denis & Davey have worked with in the past, you may simply be a casual investor who relies on the expertise of others to help you in developing your portfolio. Also like those same clients, you may discover that your lack of knowledge of the complexities of the investment industry leaves you open to being take advantage of by brokers.
