State board recommends attorney should lose license

It may be easy for those not directly involved in legal malpractice claims in Florida to view them as simply the sour grapes of those whose legal proceedings did not go as they had planned to be thrown in the directions of their attorneys. Legal representation does not always comes with satisfaction guarantees, and clients typically understand that. At the same time, a negligent attorney can prove to be very damaging to a case due to their in-depth knowledge of the law as well as the methods in which the legal system works. 

Take the case of an Illinois attorney whose license a state legal board recommended revoking. The man has a history of legal malpractice allegations stemming from his misuse of resources and accused tampering of cases in order to further his own interests. Complaints against him say that in two cases in particular, he made unfounded accusations against attorneys and judges involved, going so far as to even file legal malpractice lawsuits against them. Many of the targets of his actions say that they were forced to dedicate time and money to defend themselves, so much so that their malpractice insurance skyrocketed. Ultimately, legal officials claim that the man's tactics were intended to delay proceedings in order to increase his own individual profits from cases. 

Those who are not familiar with legal matters may not recognize such unethical tactics for what they really are; they instead only see their legal bills rise and the options decrease when it comes to resolving their cases in a prompt manner. The only protection from such practices may come in the form of a legal malpractice attorney who can help hold those perpetuating them responsible.
