Legal Malpractice Cases We Handle
Attorney negligence is the main factor in any form of legal malpractice. The failure of an attorney to exercise that degree of care commonly exercised by an ordinary member of the legal profession is negligence. However, an attorney is not a guarantor of a favorable result and therefore it is necessary to prove that "but for" the attorney's negligence, the client would have won or obtained a significantly better outcome. Professional negligence or the lack lack of
due diligence, may be seen in
pretrial malpractice or
trial malpractice. When a
civil lawsuit is mishandled by a lawyer, you could lose your case and be required to pay compensation that you do not deserve to pay, or be deprived of fair compensation for your damages.
Conflict of interest is another form of legal malpractice, which occurs when an attorney compromises a client's representation in favor of another case or matter. This can constitute a breach of fiduciary duty, such as
commingling of funds or violation of a
fee arrangement. All forms of legal malpractice involve some
breach of legal ethics and should be brought to light through a claim. Our firm can help you file your claim within the three-year limitation set by the
New York statute of limitations and can obtain results, even in difficult cases where the lawyer has
legal malpractice insurance. Contact us as soon as possible to get started on a strong case!
