Legal Malpractice

California Legal Malpractice Attorney

Lawyer Negligence • Lawsuit Misconduct

In life, mistakes happen. Unfortunately, the legal world is not immune from these mistakes, such as when you are in the middle of a trial and your lawyer has based your defense on irrelevant precedent, or your case simply has no chance of recovering any compensation.

Just as malpractice applies to the medical profession, it also applies to the legal field as well. Legal malpractice claims are actionable when a case has been handled negligently by the attorney. However, this does not mean that you can bring a legal malpractice suit against your former lawyer simply because you lost your case. Rather, in order to prove that your attorney was at fault for damaging your case, we must not only prove his or her negligent behavior, but also that the outcome of your case was directly affected by this negligence. This is not said to discourage you from contacting me, but to provide you with a realistic picture of the complexities of legal malpractice, so that together we can determine the best course of action for your particular case.

You need an experienced California legal malpractice attorney to evaluate your case and see whether or not you have grounds for a legal malpractice lawsuit.
