Legal Malpractice Against Attorneys
Individuals who work with an attorney are often going through a difficult period in their lives. When the results of the case do not reflect their wishes, the attorney may face legal malpractice allegations.
With more than over 173 years of combined experience, our lawyers have worked on cases covering the full spectrum of legal malpractice cases. Our history of successfully litigating professional malpractice cases, include situations involving alleged:
- Failures to file documents on time
- Failures to adhere to the code of ethics
- Conflicts of interest
- Improper use of the client’s money
- Failure to appear in court
- Careless actions during the review or preparation of legal documentation
Legal Malpractice Against Judges
While judges are granted immunity for many of their judicial activities, they can still be vulnerable to malpractice claims for any additional administrative duties. When judicial immunity is not available, or not being properly recognized, our attorneys provide a strong defense against malpractice allegations stemming from court administration, probation programs and other judicial or nonjudicial actions.
In addition to judges, our experience includes representing commissioners, magistrates and justices of the peace.
