Avoid legal mistakes through a business agreement

Forming a small business can be extremely profitable. A number of large corporations were started by entrepreneurs who founded small businesses and allowed them to grow. During this growth; however, certain legal problems may arise. It is important for business owners to know about these common legal mistakes, as many of these issues may have been prevented had they took the proper precautions.

Action is a virtue in dealing with suspected legal malpractice

The derivation of the term "deadline" is murky. Some argue that it traces back to the 1860s during the U.S. Civil War. The theory goes that it was used in prisoner of war camps to mark the boundary beyond which an inmate would be shot. After the turn of the 20th century, publishing normalized the term as a way of marking the printing cutoff time for adding any text.

Understanding conflict of interest

At the Lange Law Corporation in California, we realize that the relationship between you and your attorney is almost sacred. You expect your attorney to represent you ethically, skillfully and vigorously, and you also expect him or her to keep anything you say confidential and do nothing adverse to your interests.

The common reasons you might sue for legal malpractice

When you hire a lawyer, you expect nothing less than prompt, efficient, knowledgeable and ethical representation. At the Lange Law Corporation, we understand that people may not always see eye-to-eye with their lawyers. You might not click with your attorney, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he or she was incompetent or unethical – it may simply have been a difference in personalities or a miscommunication. However, like some Californians, you might have been subjected to legal malpractice, which is an entirely different situation.

Ensuring everyone has access to court reporters

When people face the judge and/or jury in a United States court-of-law, they have certain rights. One of these rights, as decided by the California Supreme Court just recently, is to have a court reporter provided during a case, regardless of whether or not a person can pay for their services. Court reporters are critical to a case, in that they record everything that was said during the trial. Essentially, they help to recreate the trial scene by writing everything that happened.

How 'failure to know the law' constitutes malpractice

Legal malpractice is an issue amongst cases in California and throughout the United States. This type of error occurs when an attorney is not competent to provide adequate legal counsel, and as a result, his or her client receives an unjust verdict. If you have recently hired an attorney to represent your case in court, or you feel as though your lawyer acted in a way that led to an error in your case, it is crucial that you understand how failure to know the law is a component of legal malpractice.
