When A Lawyer Is Careless, You Have Rights

You suffer a serious injury, then you wait patiently for your lawyer to settle your case so you can pay off bills and move on with your life. Then one day you get a call from your lawyer saying your case was dismissed. What happened?

Legal malpractice occurs when an attorney, acting in their professional capacity, fails to exercise reasonable care. Reasonable care is a standard which refers to the degree of skill that an ordinary practitioner in the legal profession would use.

Because legal malpractice can occur in any setting in which an attorney represents a client, a claim for legal malpractice can refer to a wide range of issues, including, but not limited to:

  • General negligence
  • Conflicts of interest
  • Failure to file documents or pleadings in a timely manner
  • Failure to convey settlement offers to a client
  • Ethical violations
  • Malpractice in drafting contracts
  • Billing and fee abuses
  • Unauthorized services
  • Trial malpractice
