When your attorney commingles funds

At Lange Law Corporation in California, we know that when you hire an attorney, you expect that (s)he is trustworthy, ethical and competent. We also know that you do not expect your attorney to say or do anything that could harm you or your case. Most attorneys live up to these expectations every day. Occasionally, however, an attorney makes a mistake and commits malpractice.

Should you sue attorneys if they do not represent you well?

Having the need for an attorney often signals difficulty in managing life's circumstances. Whether the challenge is an ongoing dispute you want to resolve or adoption proceedings you are not sure how to navigate, you hire a lawyer because you need assistance. California lawyers and others advertise themselves as go-to resources for just such occasions, and you presumably enlist the services of the one you believe will best represent you.

Human error may not always lead to malpractice

Although they may not seem like it all of the time, attorneys are human, and will make mistakes from time to time. However, when an attorney makes a mistake in the course of providing professional advice or services, a client who is injured or is harmed may bring a legal malpractice action to recover money damages from the offending lawyer.

Statute of limitations laws for common California legal disputes

If you live in California and are considering filing a lawsuit, there may be certain deadlines you must meet in order to do so. Depending on the type of lawsuit you wish to file, you may have a limited amount of time from the date you suffered an injury or uncovered wrongdoing to file your claim, and if you miss this deadline, you are typically out of luck. At Lange Law Corporation, we understand the importance of adhering to California’s statute of limitations laws when filing lawsuits, and we have assisted many clients whose attorneys failed to heed them pursue appropriate legal recourse.

Understanding your attorney’s ethical duties and obligations

If a California attorney agrees to take your case and represent you, you probably feel confident that he or she will advocate on your behalf and work toward fulfilling your wishes as much as possible. Legal proceedings do not always resolve themselves in the manner you may like, however, so if you lose your case, you may ask yourself whether it was because your attorney somehow dropped the ball. At Lange Law Corporation, we understand the ethical duties and obligations your lawyer has once you become a client, and we have helped many clients whose lawyers shirked these duties pursue appropriate solutions.
