Get A Second Opinion When You Suspect Your Lawyer Is Mishandling Matters

Legal malpractice can arise in a variety of ways. For instance, an attorney may fail to file a lawsuit within the statute of limitations, or miss a critical deadline for filing a document. Malpractice includes when an attorney mishandles a commercial transaction such as a real estate purchase, or mishandles the administration of an estate and you suffer financial loss.

You Have A Right To The Adequate, Ethical Representation You Pay For

Common signs — the red flags — of malpractice are when the attorney overcharges for his services, fails to communicate with the client in a timely fashion, or fails to provide the legal services he or she promised to perform.

Common instances of legal malpractice include:

  • Failing to file a lawsuit within the statute of limitations
  • Failing to properly prepare and present a lawsuit for trial
  • Misusing or misappropriating client trust account funds
  • Missing a critical deadline for filing a document or drafting errors
  • Failing to communicate with the client in a diligent and timely fashion
  • Failing to perform legal work that was paid for
  • Performing legal work in an incompetent or negligent manner
