Legal malpractice may refer to any breach of duty or contract that results in harm to a client. In order to establish legal malpractice has occurred and to receive proper compensation for your damages, you must first prove that your attorney’s negligence was the cause of your financial loss. This is not something that is easily accomplished, making it vital to the success of your claim that you have experienced and trusted legal counsel on your side.
Examples of legal malpractice include:
- Missing key deadlines
- Failing to disclose conflicts of interest
- Making errors that result in a delay of proceedings or dismissal of a case
- Any breach of fiduciary duty
- Willful misrepresentation
Poor representation, ineffective counsel, or bad strategy are not typically considered legal malpractice. However, the only way to know for sure if your case can move forward is by discussing it with an honest, trusted, and experienced legal malpractice attorney.
