What is Legal Malpractice?
Bob has an excellent reputation for getting clients what they lost due to malpractice. When attorneys make mistakes, their clients can suffer a multitude of damages, including the loss of a lawsuit, unnecessary fines and even jail time.
In order for an action or lack of action to qualify as Legal Malpractice, it must meet a few requirements. There must have been an attorney-client relationship at the time so the attorney owed a duty of care. There must be a standard which the attorney did not meet. And it must have caused the client some sort of harm.
Examples of Legal Malpractice
Considering the wide variety of actions that attorneys perform, most of the examples of Legal Malpractice fall into a few types. It may be Legal Malpractice if an attorney did not finish required work during a certain time limit, or if the attorney missed an important date like the time limit to file a claim.
Another example of Legal Malpractice would be if the attorney made a mistake in the actual work, such as a mistake in paperwork which hurt the client’s case. Finally, attorneys can make mistakes in judgment, making choices which turn out to be bad for the client.
