What is negligence as it pertains to malpractice by an attorney?
It is the failure of an attorney to exercise the care toward a client which a reasonable or prudent lawyer would do in the same situation. It could also be taking action which a reasonable attorney would not.

Legal malpractice lawyers focus on three general areas:

  1. Errors due to negligence
  2. Negligent conduct in the association with the client
  3. Fee disputes

When you call to schedule your consultation about what happened to you, we will go over the facts as you know them. If we determine that you have a case, and you determine that you want our legal malpractice lawyers to take the case, we begin our investigation. We have to prove that the attorney did not act as a reasonable lawyer would have under the circumstances. We have to determine that you have been harmed by the actions, or lack of reasonable actions. We understand how to determine the facts of these kinds of cases, and how to prepare the evidence needed to persuade a jury.

  • When there has been a breach by a member by the legal profession by either the care they provided, or their conduct, we believe that our profession as a whole suffers. Our legal malpractice lawyers want to see justice done in situations such as this. If you feel you have been harmed, call our office today to schedule a discussion of what happened to you.
  • Our clients find us to be very down-to-earth people who are concerned for them. They find us to be very hard working on their behalf. We are pleased that 95% of our new clients come from referrals by other clients and other attorneys who have worked with us, and even against us in court. As legal malpractice lawyers, we strive for the utmost in integrity, honestly and compassion for each of our clients.

When we speak of malpractice law, the term “standard of care” is often a part of the discussion. What does that mean? An example would be if an attorney does not file a lawsuit on time, allowing the time limits required by law to expire. It might well be an example of accidental error, but it does not matter in the eyes of the law. The lawyer may have “forgotten” But the client is entitled to diligent care in all matters, including paperwork. If something like this has happened to you, or any other circumstances cause you to believe you have received poor legal care, call and set up a time to speak with one of our legal malpractice lawyers.

We offer knowledgeable advice, and experienced representation.
