Know your rights: seven ethical standards for lawyers

When hiring a lawyer, most Floridians are dealing with emotionally and financially devastating issues. Even after you have settled on a lawyer, you may question your decision. Perhaps your lawyer is slow to respond to emails, or you feel he or she is not working towards your best interests.

What qualifies as legal malpractice?

You might be very upset with your attorney if you recently lost a case. The legal process is often very long and draining, making an unsatisfactory outcome very hard to take. It’s very common for any client to blame their lawyer when this happens, and many want to seek compensation.

What online reviews can (and can’t) tell you about a lawyer

When the average person needs legal help, it’s hard to know where to turn. Selecting an attorney to represent you during your most vulnerable time is a major decision. You want to find someone you can trust with the details of your case and knows exactly how to navigate law.

The Top 3 Reasons For Legal Malpractice

When you have a problem that needs legal intervention such as a divorce decree or a stressful personal injury claim, you turn to lawyers for help. You trust that they will be competent and resolve any legal issues you have while being compliant with all relevant statutes and regulations.

Can my attorney leave my case because of a conflict of interest?

Question: I was in a bad car accident: I was turning left and had the green light, when a very big truck smashed into me from behind. I called an acquaintance who is a personal injury attorney and within a few days he had reviewed my case and I had signed an agreement with him that said he would represent me in both my medical case against my own insurance company and also in my case against the guy who hit me.

Defining legal malpractice

Legal counsel is often an expensive service. You hired a professional attorney who is licensed by the state bar, and you expected results from your investment. As with other services, sometimes the results don’t meet your expectations. Can you sue for legal malpractice?
