What are examples of legal malpractice?

Floridian residents who seek out an attorney do so because they need strong, reliable, and stable legal support. Unfortunately, that isn't always what you get. We at St. Denis & Davey, P.A., work hard to help people like you, who have become victims of legal malpractice or negligent attorneys.

First of all, what exactly is legal malpractice? It encompasses an array of negligent behaviors and actions, which include but are not limited to:

  • A conflict of interest
  • Statutes of limitation
  • Trial errors
  • Incorrect documents
  • Failure to investigate and perform discovery properly
  • Breach of fiduciary duty

The latter of which includes examples like improper accounting or settlement. When you look at all of these actions, they can be done either maliciously or unintentionally. Negligence in particular can be difficult to deal with, as a negligent lawyer may not have necessarily cost you your case.

Due to the complexities of dealing with what essentially is a legal battle within a legal battle, the aid of an attorney who specializes in legal malpractice can be a huge asset. There are going to be a lot of legal hurdles that could be difficult to clear. For example, you need to be able to prove that the negligent actions your old lawyer took were the reason you faced the sentence you did.

If you believe that an attorney has cost you your case through their actions or lack-thereof, consider taking a look at our web page on legal malpractice law, linked here. You can contact our attorneys directly if you wish to discuss your case further.
