Is There A Conflict Of Interest?
Examples of conflicts of interest include violations of confidential information, breaches of duty of loyalty, misconduct, oversight and misrepresentation. These are but a few examples of legal malpractice known as conflict of interest.
Attorneys cannot serve clients whose interests are opposed to each other. We are not afraid to sue other attorneys who have ignored legal ethics, and have been careless with, or neglectful of, your interests. The Florida conflict of interest lawsuit attorneys at St. Denis & Davey protect the rights of those who have been wronged by their previous attorneys through conflict of interest. St. Denis & Davey holds lawyers accountable.
Whether you are looking for an Orlando legal negligence lawyer or a Tampa legal negligence attorney, we can help. We have offices located in Jacksonville, Miami, Tampa and Panama City, and are available for consultation in West Palm Beach. Call us at 1-800-785-2153 to make your appointment.
Legal Negligence Attorneys Holding Lawyers Accountable In St. Petersburg
During litigation, an attorney must be mindful of the ethical obligation to put a client’s interests above all others. Professional responsibility rules do not allow an attorney to represent a person against a former client in the same case, or in a related matter, or to argue information connected to an earlier representation to the disadvantage of a former client.
If your attorney had a business or personal relationship that causes you to suspect that your confidential information was disclosed to another to your detriment, the attorney has created a conflict of interest. For example, if you are litigating a claim against your attorney’s former client, your attorney may have to disqualify himself or herself before the court does. Other conflicts arise when attorneys engage in intimate or business relationships with clients.
If a lawyer’s conflict of interest has worked to your disadvantage in Florida or elsewhere, the legal negligence attorneys at St. Denis & Davey can help with your St. Petersburg case.
