Legal Malpractice

 

Just like doctors, lawyers are sometimes negligent in practice too.  Instead of medical malpractice as with doctors, the correct term is legal malpractice in claims concerning negligent lawyers.  Legal malpractice occurs when a lawyer has been negligent in his  dealings with his client that causes his client harm.

 

Below is a list of common examples of legal malpractice:

 

  • Failure to know the current applicable law;

  • Failure to perform an adequate investigation;

  • Missed the Statute of Limitations;

  • Fraudulent billing practices;

  • Breach of fiduciary duty; and

  • Various errors / omissions that prejudice your case
