Professional or Legal Malpractice

We believe that attorneys should be held liable if they abuse the trust of their clients and fail to uphold the applicable standards of performance and conduct.

Professional or Legal Malpractice

Legal malpractice is the term for negligence, breach of fiduciary duty, or breach of contract by an attorney that causes harm to his or her client. In order to rise to an actionable level of negligence (an actual breach of a legal duty of care), the injured party must show that the attorney’s acts were not merely the result of poor strategy, but that they were the result of errors that no reasonably prudent attorney would make. While the exact definition varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, typically, the four elements of legal malpractice are (i) an attorney-client relationship, (ii) negligence, (iii) causation, and (iv) financial loss.

One of the most intimidating legal situations anyone can face is the prospect of filing a lawsuit against an attorney who has been negligent in handling your case. Many firms reject these cases because they wish to avoid the disapproval of others in the legal community.
