Legal Malpractice

 

We will review substantial legal malpractice cases arising anywhere in Florida or Texas.  We can review matters from other jurisdictions, with the understanding that we would be retaining local counsel to assist us in those other states.

What is legal malpractice?

Legal malpractice is an umbrella term to define a suit against a lawyer. To determine if you have been a victim of legal malpractice, you should ask yourself the following questions:

Did my lawyer fail to file my case in time?

Was my case dismissed because my lawyer failed to diligently pursue the case?

Was my case dismissed because my lawyer failed to designate expert witnesses or failed to provide adequate expert reports?

Did my lawyer force me to settle my case for an inadequate amount due to a conflict of interest? Did I get sued because my lawyer drafted a document or agreement that was improper or ambiguous?

Did I lose my case because my lawyer drafted a document or agreement that was improper or ambiguous?

Did the lawyer sign documents without my consent?

Did the lawyer settle my case below the policy limits that were available?

Did the lawyer use adequate "discovery"?

Did the lawyer "dump" my case just before the statute of limitations ran out?

Did my lawyer force me to settle out of court instead of going to trial because of his/her lack of preparation or experience?

Did the lawyer prepare sufficiently for my case?

Did I get an improper or inadequate settlement in my original suit?

Was my lawyer truthful with me about the status and handling of my case?

    

 

There are, of course, many other ways in which a lawyer might have caused a client harm.
