Legal Malpractice Issues

Legal professionals should be held to specific standards

| Apr 23, 2020 | Legal Malpractice Law |

You pay your attorney to represent your best interests, but this isn’t always what happens. Sometimes, a lawyer will do things that prevent them from truly being able to do what you need them to do. When there is an element of malpractice, you may opt to pursue a claim for the damages you face.

The legal community is a tight one, so some individuals think that they don’t have any recourse if they aren’t receiving the representation they need. While it is true that many attorneys won’t touch legal malpractice cases, our law office is ready to help you act when you didn’t receive the representation you should have because of an issue that falls under the umbrella of malpractice.

Some individuals might wonder whether they have a legal malpractice claim. In most cases, the issue is going to be very evident. These matters usually include factors like:

  • Substandard or nonexistent communication
  • Improper investigation or discovery
  • Breach of specific duties, including fiduciary duties
  • Trial errors
  • Noncompliance with statutes of limitation
  • Improper documentation

We understand that this is a trying time in your life. We don’t want to add to your stress, so we will work closely with you to ensure that you understand what’s going on and what options you have to deal with the problems you had with your former attorney.

Our attorneys believe that everyone in the legal field should uphold the high standards we are sworn to abide by. We work hard on behalf of our clients to ensure that they aren’t left with subpar, negligent representation.
