What can you do if you are unhappy with your lawyer?

If you are like many California residents, a time may come when you need to hire an attorney. Maybe you need a divorce attorney, or perhaps you are in search of someone who can defend you on a criminal charge or help you out after an accident. Regardless of the type of attorney you hire, in doing so, you enter into a relationship with this person, and given how much of an investment hiring a lawyer can prove to be, you want to feel confident in the person you entrust to work on your behalf.

A lower-than-expected settlement – is it legal malpractice?

Maybe you were in a car accident and needed legal representation, or perhaps you slipped on a greasy restaurant floor and had to call a lawyer to help with your case. Either way, you expected a professional, competent attorney to guide you through the process and help you recoup medical and other expenses. California residents can reasonably hold those expectations of a lawyer they hire, but what if he or she does not live up to expectations? 

You have the sole right to settle or not

Whether it’s in a civil or criminal proceeding, the negotiating skills of a California lawyer are vital to working out a settlement to your case. However, the one thing you should not hear is that your lawyer has agreed to a settlement on your behalf. If your attorney has accepted a settlement without your consent, you may have been a victim of legal malpractice.
