Warning signs of possible legal malpractice

Working with a lawyer for whatever reason is supposed to be helpful and less stressful than handling legal issues on your own. If you believe your current lawyer is not handling your case properly, you will want to look at possible warning signs of legal malpractice in Pasadena so you can make a switch.

One of the most common signs of legal malpractice is when the attorney refuses to be flexible when it comes to billing, scheduling appointments and meetings. An attorney who won't make every effort to ensure your satisfaction or comfort is likely not in it for the right reasons.

Lawyers who do not make themselves available to their current clients is another warning sign of potential legal malpractice. They don't have to be available around the clock, but returning phone calls and emails within 24 hours is reasonable. There are deadlines when it comes to court cases. Failing to meet these deadlines can put you in a difficult legal situation. Your lawyer should not take days or weeks to get back to you.

Transparency is an important part of a relationship with an attorney. An attorney should be as transparent as possible when it comes to the law. If your attorney is not giving you honest answers or opinions about your case, legal malpractice could be present. If your attorney is not looking out for your best interests, it's time to find new representation.
