Understanding legal conflicts of interest

Hiring a California attorney involves a substantial investment, so you want to feel confident that the person you trust to advocate on your behalf has no conflicts of interest that could potentially interfere with representation. Regrettably, however, attorneys do sometimes take on clients despite having existing conflicts of interest, and they may do so intentionally or unintentionally. At the Lange Law Corporation, we understand how much an attorney conflict of interest can affect your case, and we have helped many clients who found themselves in such circumstances pursue appropriate recourse.

How do I know if my legal counsel is incompetent?

It is not often that you find yourself needing legal counsel in the El Segundo area. When you do, you expect for the attorney you took time and money to hire to protect your rights and represent your interests. Issues can arise with your attorney that may cause you to end up with an unfavorable or unexpected outcome. How do you know if your legal representation is the cause of the result?

Revisiting one of the biggest legal malpractice cases in the U.S.

Clients expect that their attorney will be on their side, looking out for their best interests. After all, that is one of the fundamental reasons for working with a lawyer: To have a knowledgeable advocate working to obtain a favorable outcome. But sometimes, it turns out that a lawyer does not have your best interests in mind at all—for example, when a lawyer has a conflict of interests.

Is there a link between attorney substance abuse and malpractice?

If you count yourself among the many people across California who have ever needed legal representation, you probably placed a lot of faith in your attorney, hoping that he or she would do everything in his or her power to help you win your case. When attorneys abuse alcohol or other substances, however, it can hinder their ability to appropriately and adequately represent you.

What is the case-within-a-case method?

If you have been involved in a legal malpractice case, you may feel deceived and abandoned by the person you appointed to protect your best interests. Whether the attorney you hired to represent you neglected to file the correct documents, pursue the best route of action or used some other form of bad lawyering, you have the right to file a claim against them. There are several methods you can use to prove the attorney was negligent in his or her actions. One involves the case-within-a-case method.
