Representing Victims Of Legal Malpractice

When you hire a lawyer, you trust them to handle your case with care and ethical professionalism. You expect to disclose any conflicts of interest that could impact their ability to represent you. You rely on them to conduct a thorough investigation and in-depth research to support your case. You assume they will file the right documents in the right courts before the deadline expires. Put simply, you place your rights in their hands.

The vast majority of lawyers take their professional obligations seriously. Sometimes, however, they make mistakes or let things slide. Sometimes they're overworked and neglect to properly handle critical components of their clients' cases. In rare cases, particularly unscrupulous attorneys may intentionally sabotage or mishandle a client's case for their own personal gain. In each of these situations, the end result is the same: You're left empty-handed.
