Professional Negligence

When you hire a lawyer, you depend upon a relationship of trust and expertise.However, when you are poorly represented and harmed by a lawyer who neglects your case, or the lawyer fails to provide the professional and competent service you deserve, there may be grounds for a lawyer malpractice claim.

Thousands of people and businesses are victimized by lawyer malpractice each year.

To determine if you have been the victim of lawyer negligence, consider the following:

  • Did your lawyer allow the “Statute of Limitations” to expire, preventing your lawsuit?
  • Did your lawyer settle your case without permission, for an inadequate amount, or below all available insurance coverage?
  • Did you lose your case because your lawyer improperly drafted a document?
  • Did you lose your case due to inadequate preparation, a flawed investigation or incompetence at trial?
  • Did your lawyer sue the wrong party?
  • Did your lawyer neglect to file a “Notice of Claim” or filed one too late?
