Legal Malpractice

We step in when your lawyer fails.

Lawyers practice law, but they are not above the law.  Like doctors, they are held to certain professional and ethical standards, and if they negligently or purposely fail to meet those standards they should be held responsible.

We restore your trust.

The law can be complex and confusing.  When a client hires an attorney, the client places an extraordinary amount of trust in that legal advocate.  If that trust is broken because a lawyer fails to do his job, we are here to help.

We help you determine whether legal malpractice occurred.

An undesired outcome in a legal matter does not necessarily mean a lawyer committed malpractice. But certain types of mistakes should not occur if a lawyer or law firm exercises reasonable care. The following mistakes may indicate your lawyer committed malpractice:

  • Failing to meet a deadline imposed by a law or regulation, including a filing deadline such as a statute of limitation.
  • Failing to identify a conflict of interest between the lawyer’s interests and the client’s.
  • Providing representation in an area of law where the lawyer has inadequate knowledge or experience.
  • Making or failing to correct significant drafting errors in contracts or other documents.
  • Failing to properly investigate a matter.
  • Failing to conduct and respond to discovery.
  • Failing to hire and designate expert witnesses.
