Holding Lawyers Accountable For Improperly Handling Documents

At the Florida law firm of St. Denis & Davey, we hold lawyers accountable for instances of legal malpractice and attorney negligence by bringing lawsuits on behalf of victims of breach of fiduciary duty and conflicts of interest. We work with many clients throughout the state who have legal malpractice claims based on their former attorney’s failure to file the right document or form, or other improper methods of handling documents.

Improper Legal Documents Attorneys Holding Other Attorneys Accountable

An experienced, competent lawyer should know which documents to file or submit when representing a client. He or she should likewise be able to competently draft and review a legal document for a client. Some examples of legal malpractice with regard to the mishandling of documents include:

  • Badly drafted business agreements
  • Omissions such as right of first refusal or escape clauses
  • Failure to execute any or all documents
  • Missed filing deadlines
  • Missed statutes of limitations
  • Failure to follow court orders
  • Failure to respond to motions
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Failure to provide an accurate fee agreement
  • Failure to provide accountability of fees

When it’s obvious that your lawyer improperly handled or drafted legal documents in your case, our  Florida negligence attorneys at the law firm of St. Denis & Davey can help you pursue a case for legal malpractice.
